Well, when you work in another country you often learn that things don’t always run smoothly. The time building the house has really gone well and everyone has enjoyed themselves, but we’ve had the hiccups too.
We lost half of Tuesday to rain. Wednesday the group worked in the rain a bit, while I (Sarah), my Mom, and my Aunt Jean waited for four hours for a bus that never came, and we never got our load of blocks. Thursday there was a strike in La Ceiba which kept the blocks delayed another day. That however is just life here. You learn to go with the flow. Here people aren’t too worried about today because whatever you were going to do today, you can do tomorrow.
It’s been really great to have family here on this trip. I personally had never seen so many Furrows in one place, being that I have yet to go to a family reunion. It’s been nice for me to get to know the individuals and the family as a whole (you should hear the Furrows sing). Jason has really appreciated having more time with his cousins than a couple hours a year. Most importantly for both of us it has been a great honor to have our family be a part of our ministry. Thanks you guys!
