Hi we made it safely trecking on crazy buses..forgotten how mad it is here!! very sticky hot.with very stormy nights..it is the rainy season.The kids seem to be enjoying it here it certainly feels like another world.I am in an internet cafe and the electricity is unreliable so we wont be able to write as frequently.We are at the orphanage and it has been very emotional and great to see our freinds here..also the kids.who have grown so much!we are getting stuck into life here..Hamish already has blisters from doing cement for the foundations of a house..and I have been playing clarinet and singing in the church already..and getting a choir together every pm…the kids are fantastic singers..its inspirational to hear them..we plan to do some presentations with dance also.Our kids are loving having loads of kids to play with..they run around all day and flop into bed about 8…they also enjoy killing huge cochroaches!We are home schooling them each morning for a couple of hours..its going really well…they get a lot done in a short amount of time.The place has much improved since we were last here the house where we stayed is unrecognizable..totally redone..it has a veranda!its beautiful..taking Seth around it was weird…we kept telling him it looked differenr when we lived in it!The kids all look well and happy and they have built new accomodation and plan to build 5 more houses..which will be great for the kids..to live in smaller groups with house parents..Alonso and Michelle have worked very hard..along with all the team.We visited Josie the amazing woman who started and built this place.she has given most of her life to these kids and now she has retired and looking really well ..it was good to catch up with her and her family.It is stormy here lots of rain!!particularly through the night.The photos are of our travels through guatamala..and the copan ruins in honduras..and a rain storm floating seed pods !..I got collared for a tourism survey on the honduran border!!I wont put photos of the kids here on the net I really need to get permission it might not be appropriate…but will send some of the area etc.The older girls have braided our girls hair they look really cute..show you soon..for now bye….keep praying for us..God bless Rachel Hamish and Kids.Cant seem to upload photos..iff they dont work will try later!
