First of all, let us introduce you to the new family on our staff. Over the past few years we've gotten to know this family from our village of Urraco. We met the girls through our Library Program and English classes, then met their Mom, Belkis, through church activities, and finally their Dad, Oscar, when he joined our construction team. We've been very impressed with their whole family and are so excited to have them working in our Children's Home. They already feel like family.
We're now starting the hottest, driest time of the year in our part of Honduras. This is "summer" here and the favorite time to head to the beach or the rivers. So, to celebrate our Semana Santa (Holy Week) Honduras-style, we took the kids to the beach.
Once we hit the beach, the kids couldn’t get in the water fast enough. They loved the waves and the salty water, but their favorite part was making new friends in the tidal pool.
