checking the internet or both
Well our "just us" plan became just us plus Manuel He didn't have anyone to eat with and we invited him back to our house after church. When he stayed to use the internet, I sent Sulmi to invite Kristel to come help us decorate.
We were just opening the box and laying the number 3's on one chair and number 4's on another when Juan and Angelica came to the gate. Juan was offering to help me get rid of the huge leaf cutter ant colony that I have in the back yard. We put that off for another day but I invited them in to join the growing decorating "party". What fun! With six of us, the tree went up very quickly and created a great memory of the day.

After the tree was finished, Juan asked to see the old photo albums that I made the first two years I was in Belize (2005-2007). It was fun to reminisce about friends in the photos. Some used to live in OW but have moved away. Many others are still with us but have become much older. We laughed and laughed about how cute the now 15 and 16 year olds looked way back when they were 6 and 7.
I thank God for blessing us with this Deaf community and Christian friends who just drop in now and then.
Note: A big thank you to Kristel for being the photographer!
