Can It Get Even More Beautiful?

Welland HANDS Team:

Well..this morning it's 57 degrees...brrrr in Belize.

Breakfast with pancakes for Shrove Tuesday...did you enjoy yours?

Off to Cornerstone Presbyterian High School with Mr Zantingh as principal..Imagine coming all the way to Belize and we met a fellow Christian from Smithville. Incredible!!!! Marlene graduated from Elementary School with him. 

The school yard was clean and very presentable. 95 students attend. Not all are Christian. But the level of education is high compared to the public school system in Belize.

Back to Concepcion we went in the 13 person van. We finished the tiling and cleaned up more grout. The dust is so fine we were having a little trouble with it. Masks, masks, masks were necessary.

Some of us became teachers, others spent time in the classroom and others played outside with the kids--all developing relationships with these precious children of God. We are humbled by your mercy Lord.

Back to Hok Ol K'in. Some of the guys were able to snorkel. Others relaxed.

Supper fed to us by the women of the Church. Singing with gusto after devotions.

Okay my voice is getting hoarse..time for a cold drink of...water or coke or sprite.

One more day.....
