Hot Tamales

Hola.

Had a stellar time digging today and yesterday. It was very
hot....over 40 degrees, and the sun was just cookin. Everyone has
started to get some good color.....maybe even a little too much :)

All are in good health, and are getting along famously. The girls
have been doing a fantastic job. Really getting into the whole
thing, and working very hard. No sissies in this bunch. They are
being a great witness the the people we are helping, as well as being
excellent ambassadors to Christ, Canada, and Yes Church.

They killed a poisonous snake that came into camp yesterday, so that
was pretty cool. Also went for another jungle walk at lunch, and
took some photos of some pretty big bees nests. Mary almost stuck
her head into a little hornets nest by mistake while demonstrating
here gymnastic abilities, but pain was averted, and all is well.

The towns people here are great. Kids all over the place playing
with one another. Very happy , and like having their picture taken.
Everyone in general is very helpful, and interested in what we are
doing. We really stand out here, and turn a lot of heads. No other
white people really in a town of over 6000 people, so kinda makes us
an oddity. It's a good experience.

That's it for now. Enjoy the snow back home....Ha!

    We were just wondering..how far up the tree did Rachel climb when she found out about the snake :) We give you so much credit for digging in such hot weather and are so glad that everybody is healthy and happy. Hard to believe you are into your 2nd week!! Mary, be careful with those stunts of yours!! Take care and God bless, Teresa,Ron and Miranda

    Thanks again, Vic.
    How great to hear the news!
    Happy to hear that that snake is no more.
    Keep Howard away from the bees and hornets, please. He does have benadryl in his back pack...but hope that he doesn't need it.
    How great to be in a smaller place for awhile. Sounds great!
    So good to be Ambassadors for Christ!
    Love to, and prayers for, you all.
    Special love to you know who!!!!
