Hola amigos! Our spanish is improving…a little. We are enjoying the chance to interact alot with the kids, the house parents in each children’s home, the students that live with us in the volunteer house, the local Hondurans that work with Donnie and Isaiah on the projects on the property and with Jason and Sarah and their adorable kids.

It is hard to sum up what we have been doing, so I will give some observations from this past week.

First, let me explain a little bit better what the “village” is like. The closest village (about a 10 minute walk up the dirt road from Give Hope 2 Kids) is Urraco. The village of Urraco consists of a tienda (a concrete building that houses a store). The tienda, or store, is a window that opens so you can buy the basic necessities: eggs, milk, Pepsi, and chips. That’s about all that the tienda has. Across the street from the tienda is a church and a school. This is the town. Seriously, like 3 buildings.

The houses are along the road and are also nestled back into the jungle. The houses are mostly made of concrete, since everything else will mold in this climate. They typically are one large room with an outdoor kitchen, and washing area outside. Most houses have chickens, pigs, turkeys and dogs all in the house or in the outdoor kitchen. It is not uncommon to walk into the house and have the family and animals all together. Pictures will help to give this a better view.

Oops! I am being called to go swimming in the river…the highlight of Lille’s day. I will continue to update you on life in Honduras later…

    I just wanted to let you know if you have any trouble with Spanish I might be able to give you some help. I don’t know a lot but I am taking lessons, so I will know a lot as you are getting closer to the end of your trip. Just email back and whenever I can I will write back to let you know how you say it or, if I can’t help you. I also have a friend who is in 2nd grade and has gone to a Spanish immersion school. So, it might take a little longer to answer because I would have to call her to ask but I could probably be able to give you the answer to your any question. Have a great rest of your trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!! And hope God leads you through the rest of your trip. May GOD be with YOU!!!!!!
    Love from your friend,
    Esther Everson

    P.S. Lille, and Eva I can’t wait until you get back! When you do we might have to hold a huge Party.

    from Jeanie – I’ll allow this to get sent unedited as it conveys a sweet love and desire to help, even if it is not quite practical
