A Day of Rest

Woodland 2012 HANDS Team:

After a very long and hot day of work yesterday, our team was exceedingly happy to have a Sunday day of rest.  This morning we worshipped at St Andrews Presbyterian Church in downtown Belize.  This evening we worshipped at Unity Presbyterian right beside the school where we have been working.  And this afternoon, we were able to enjoy a number of different restful activities.

Two members of our team who should remain nameless (Brock and Joel) decided to take the Fourth Commandment very literally and slept for about four hours.  Henri spent much of the afternoon with David Betson, the son of Pastor Betson and his wife Carolyn, while the other members of our team either read or spent hours in the Caribbean just outside our front door.  Unfortunately, as our picture attests, Jason and AJ were not good ambassadors of our school.  They jumped into the sea and promptly taught perfectly innocent Belizean children the ancient Canadian martial art form of Chicken Fighting.  We hope their mothers don't find out.

Well the photo doesn't surprise me in the least...chicken fights are a staple activity at family water get togethers but I've never seen the double decker move! So thankful all is going well and looking forward to more stories of God working through the team.

Great photo guys, I hope you are having an absolutely amazing time. I know I will never forget my trip to D.R.and all the people that touched my life. I hope you take away as much as I did :)
