Subject: Updates/with PHOTOS!!!!!

David and Antonio finished their school year this week.  Yes, it is early.  The gov't declared public schools finished.  David finished his 7th grade year and Antonio his 2nd. year of colegio (jr.high/high school).  Whew!  They made it.    They will start back again in Feb. 

Mark and David went to spend the weekend with Gerardo.  Gerardo continues to do well and his next appt. is tomorrow morning at 6am.  We pray for a good report and a cutting back on some of the meds.   Mark will be coming home tomorrow and Antonio will be back with Gerardo.  The lady for the weekends didn't work out, so Mark and I will take turns with an older child each weekend until he can come home.  

Tomorrow Mark will be bringing home a deep freeze.  It will be so nice to not have to dig through large pig parts to get to a chicken.   I know Hannah is especially happy. 

Today we had our first chilly and rainy day.  It has rained the past 2 days pretty much off and on.   I guess Honduran fall is here. 

Yesterday I went and paid our late fee at the one dvd rental place in our town.  The man knew our van and white faces.  He had the calculator ready with the charge before I even got to the counter.  I paid the fee so we could rent a movie, without Mark and with much rain we needed a diversion!   I also realized why we had a late fee.  The place only opens after 1pm - I guess we tried to drop the dvds off before that time, always finding it closed.  Small matter I know, but every time we walk by the place the man gives us the eye.  We are now dvd guilt free.  Whew! 

Here are some pictures of the apartment that Gerardo is living in while in Tegucigalpa.

The landlord was fixing the doorknob the last time I left.....and installed new screens on the windows.  One reason we chose this apt. was that it seemed cleaner than most places we saw, besides being about 2-3 blocks from the hospital.

Above is Gerardo's room.  Daughters of Zion, I am sure you see some goods reworked!  And Lou and Jeanne, those are the curtains you made for the casita.  We are so thankful that we had things to make it homey. 

Below is the kitchen before groceries!


Blessings, Paula
