Manuel had witnessed his boss taking everyone out to dinner for Christmas and thanking God for the success of his business. Manuel decided to thank his friends and God by taking his friends out to eat. So here we are at Nahil Mayab enjoying his generosity.
There was a part of me that wanted to say...hey save your money because you never know when you will need it. But I said nothing because I was glad to see him be generous, and enjoy sharing. He's trusting that God will continue to provide...and He will.

Here are some pictures from Morine's graduation. Brittany interpreted but Morine had never used an interpreter before. She gave it a good try. I'm looking forward to seeing how she does in Infant 1 with an interpreter. I think it will be a challenge at first...but she will increase her vocabulary and catch on quickly.

|I'm praying at the beginning of the Bible study.|
That's me praying at the start of the Bible study. The time that seems to work best for everybody is Saturday noon...for now. We'll evaluate in the fall and maybe go back to Saturday nights. What do we study? On Sunday mornings I pass out a paper with the day of the week and the verse to read. These verses are background for the topic that I will use for Sunday's sermon and form the basis for our Bible studies.

When I first came to Belize, almost 8 years ago, Angelica gave me this little Nopal plant. It looks like a "cactus". I planted it in the front of the house.
It grew to be a beautiful tree. It had red flowers on it most of the year. But it had horrible prickers that seemed to fall into the grass and prick you if you walked near by, Gabriel was developing sores on his feet and legs from trying to bite the prickers out. Then the sores swelled up and got infected. I loved the tree but it was the tree or the dog and Gabriel won hands down.
So I asked Juan to come chop it down. He did it piece by piece with a machete.
What hard work! He started with protective clothing and shed it as the heat of the day made him too hot.
Now I get to plant something else!

So I came home to get the blanket and Sulmi asked, "Can I help with dinner?"
I said, "Yes!"
When I returned she had already peeled the potatoes, started them to boil, and both cooked and seasoned the ground beef .
I was so impressed that I broke out the camera and watched her do the rest. She then proceeded to shred the cheese.
Zapped the beans and corn in the microwave...
....and set the table. It was potato bar night. I praise God for guiding Sulmi to be a thoughtful, helpful person. She's also a good cook!
