Subject: New friend with Spanish to boot!

This summer we have had a new visitor with us.  She, Emily, came to help out in whatever way she could, and hopefully to get some practical Spanish to add to her already good Spanish.  We probably didn't give her much help in Spanish, but she sure blessed us with hers.  

Emily stepped into teaching Spanish class to our youngest guys, helping with letters, sounds, reading, and vocabulary.  Yep, that's right.  The gringa comes to teach Spanish to the Hondurans.  That is what happens when our little Hondurans live with Americans.  Sad but true. She also joined in with whatever was going on at home, in the local school, or with friends.  Emily was able to help with tutoring, teach PE and English at the local public school, teach self defense class to the kids in the neighborhood, help get things organized and together for tutoring, work with Eli in reading, and join in on kitchen chores.  She also spent a lot of time playing with, praying for,  and loving on our kids.  We are thankful for the help and friendship that she brought to Hope Farm.  

Emily went to the beach with us to wrap up her stay.  I always thought it would be nice to have time at the end of a trip to ponder the mysteries of life, or get sunburned.  And yes, impossible to get a photo of every Hope Farmer smiling. 

Emily hiked with the kids to the local waterfall.  

Tutoring kids! Emily helped with Math and Spanish tutoring on Mondays and Thursdays. 

This is Emily's self defense class. 

Kids at the local public school.  Emily and the World Racers went every day of the week to teach PE and English.  The kids loved it!

Emily was a pro at Honduran food week.  We had different Honduran friends come and teach a Honduran food.  Glenda taught how to make tamales with beans.

We are grateful for the time that Emily spent with us.  It was a blessing to have someone love on the kids in our lives.  Thanks Emily!
