Friday, April 29, 2016 -- Month #14 - Week #63 - Day #438 - El Dorado, La Entrada, Copan

April 29, 2016

We cracked confetti eggs on Hna Velasquez's head to celebrate her having 12 months today! And Hna Cruz blew her bubbles. We definitely surprised her, poor girl! But we all laughed and it was fun.

Our confetti eggs we made!
We finished up the divisions business in Copan Ruinas and hopped on a bus that took FOREVER to leave the terminal and get over to La Entrada. But we finally got there, safe and sound, and went directly to our lunch appointment with Hna Brenda because we were exhausted and we were really, really, really hungry. And then we did some visits and ran around collecting some things for the activity tomorrow. And in the afternoon there was a lightning storm! That was awesome! Haven't seen one of those in a while. Now, I was a little cautious since lightening rods and insulation and whatnot don't exist here, just your basic sheet metal roof, metal door, cement block houses, but we got inside a house to wait out the spattering rain and high-ish winds. But I loved hearing thunder again. I've missed it!

And one of our DoorBusters of the day was with a grandmother with her 5 grandsons, so we showed them the Siguelo video (Follow Him, from the Easter initiative) click:  Follow Him - an Easter message about Jesus Christ and it was the cutest thing to see these 5 little boys all quietly sitting in a row on the couch, with their eyes glued to the tiny DVD player screen. So that was a nice little bright spot in our night's contacts.

We're still doing good, hoping the water will come soon. We don't have any in the house or the pila. Something happened to the water pumping system a while ago (they fixed the copper coils in the transformer, now there's some issue with the river and pipelines or something, I think). So we're all hoping that the water will come soon.
