Lamanai 4 comments


Today was our teams designated "Fun Day". Ruth and Mario arranged for us to take a boat up New River to the Mayan site "Lamanai".

Work Hard, Play Harder :D 3 comments


Today was a very productive and gratifying day for our HANDS team. The boys have been working on a partition in Ruth's office for the last couple of days. Today they finished and it was ready for the girls to start their painting. Grace's classroom tips have been greatly appreciated and passed along to many different teachers at New Life.
