Joseph's BIG News!!!!!!!!



For the past three months we have had a lot of rain. Just about every day we have a good shower. Well about three weeks ago one of the bridges on the main road out of Tegucigalpa collapsed. This has caused a lot of chaos in the city. All that traffic has to find another way in and out of the city. It's been a mess. They don't expect to have the new bridge in place until about December. It's going to be a long wait!!


A Taste of Middle East

Mike Barjum and his family have become good friends. God has transformed Mike's life in a miraculous way, from darkness to light, from the pit to the rock, He has an amazing story. His mother is from Bethlehem, she moved to Honduras as a teenage girl, but though she settled in a far away country she and her family have held on to much of her Palestinian culture including the food. We were treated to a delicious Palestinian meal with Mike and his family. It almost felt like we were back in Jordan with Hannah's family. It was so good. We had cussa leben (stuffed zuchini and yogurt), hummus, kibeh (cracked wheat stuffed with meat and pine nuts deep fried) tabolueh, marmaon, sufiha and lots more.
From Left to Right: Joseph and myself, Mike's mother Lilian, Mike's son Daniel, Mike and his wife Mimi. Mike has two other sons that live in the states.


A Masterpiece

Joseph is an up and coming artist. He loves to color. Most of his free time is spent coloring and drawing and it seems that each day he is getting better. For a little four year old boy I think he does pretty good. Here is a page he colored for his homework. Not too bad huh?
