Helping Honduras …


Settling in

Our first full day in Copán was full of good things.  All three of us are currently staying with the same family.  Lourdes, our hostess, is an excellent cook.  She can make oatmeal (I’m not exactly a fan) taste great.  Valerie and I headed to school for the morning, while Scott worked on homilies for the mission trip.  At Ixbalanque (the school) Valerie is working on perfecting the lessons she will teach to the women of La Laguna.  I decided to try something different this year.  I brought two copies of a novel in Spanish.  I spent the morning reading the first two chapters aloud; my teacher helped me with vocabulary and idioms. It’s a strange story — I think I’m going to enjoy it.

This afternoon included a bit of shopping.  We also looked for a new restaurant — the British Colonial House — and decided we will go there for a meal before we leave Copán.  It advertises itself as an “English pub and restaurant,” so I was hoping for cider.  No such luck.  Sigh.

We had a good rain this evening.  It has stopped, but I wish it would start up again so that the temperature would stay nice and cool.  Besides, I like listening to the rain as I fall asleep.  And here, as if on cue, is the rain.  Got my wish.  Thank you, Lord.
