Busy 2 weeks

The last 2 weeks have been some of the busiest I have had here in Honduras. The team arrived on April 6th and I went to pick them up in San Pedro Sula. They were here for one week working on the nurses station addition and painting my lab cabinets. lab got a new face lift and the nurses now have a breakroom addition with good fridges for meds and patient food, etc. It is still missing the flooring because the cement wasn't cured yet, but will post pictures when it is completely finished.  Many of the nurses felt very blessed by a team coming and providing this special space for them! :)

Enjoyed the week with the team of 8 (including my parents) helping them cook and clean, joining them for devotions and getting to know each one of them better. It was a great, but exhausting week!

Cooking dinner in the big staff housing kitchen.
Honduran team favorites were Tres Leches cake and Lizano sauce.
Making icing for the Tres leches cake to serve to the team.

Took the team to the beach.

Mom and dad stayed an extra week with me. We got to go up to the water tower and to a waterfall. We also went to several extra church services for special occasions. The counted 7 times we went to church in the 2 weeks they were here. I think they were a little overwhelmed.

Mom helped me work on making curtains for my living room out of an old sheet I had bought at a thrift store. We also made curtains for my bedroom...desperately needed...sure beats the towel I had tacked up with thumb tacks. Dad helped me do some things around the house like putting locks on my door and windows, hanging curtain rods and lifting one of my beds for totes to fit underneath. He also helped me hang up my hammock. :)
