Well, it´s been awhile and our site is finally back up. Sorry about that folks, we had some DNS (fancy tech acroynym) problems that we finally caught wind of. Things are very Honduran here. Life is in slow-mo. While caring for 13 kiddos keeps our lives hopping, Honduras marches on at a snails pace. I´ve been trying to get Internet at the home for three weeks. The install ¨tech¨ has been sick for four weeks. We are looking at other companies. Then again, Internet is a bit too 20th century for this country. Internet Cafe´s are everywhere and I am at one as I type. The cost is about a buck an hour. I would work at one full time if I didn´t have to leave Paula single handed with all the children. Our children are doing well. They have adapted to the culture and culinary changes muy rapido. They serve the children without pause and realize that we are needed here. One thing that I find especially encouraging is that they sometimes take a break from the language barrier and spend time together WITHOUT fighting (in contrast to our stateside behavior). I feel they are going to come out of this as close as brothers and sisters could ever be. They rely on each other for some good ol´ englais when they need a break from espanol. God is good and we continue to depend on him. Our ¨flesh¨ won´t even get us past 10 AM if we rely on that alone. Moving to another country does not automatically move you closer to God. We depend on Him more as we quickly notice when we´ve neglected our quiet times.
