We couldn’t have done all this painting without help though, so we want to say a big thanks to all the friends from Minnesota and Canada that worked so hard painting. Now our houses are looking bright and cheery, which is perfect for a Children’s Home.
People down here love everything painted in a bright, bold colors. The normal color choices for US houses would be classified as boring here. Here you see houses painted in every color and shade. It’s fun and cheerful and very Honduran.
I wanted to show everyone some pictures of Jason teaching English to kids at the elementary school in our village. The school has close to 100 kids in grades 1-6, taught by 3 teachers. When we asked how we could help out the teachers said English classes would be a big help. This is required learning in high school, but if the kids start learning it now, it will be much easier for them later.
These pictures are from the first day of school, when we told the kids in an assembly that we would be teaching English classes. Jason had them all mesmorized and learning how to count to 10 for the first little lesson.
