That requires patience and praying Psalm 4:4. We are still dealing with a dysfunctional and corrupt government agency. As it stands now our plan is to make a another trip on Aug 22th to check on the family, try to schedule a move and deliver some donated supplies. We'll keep you updated. Prayers are appreciated.
Mr. Botangles is in full adolescent mode and developing a bit of an entitlement issue.
Never the less, we continue to develop creative strategies for the kids who need to develop trust and Mr. Botangles who needs patience.

July is anniversary month for the IMI School with our yearly Science fair that featured everything from math games to bubble makers to card board VR goggles.
The Cultural fair took place during the same week and featured among other things traditional Honduran Indian garb hand sewn by the girls themselves.
Meanwhile Cowgirl Cathy found some rope...

Then Martha got word from her husband who had just walked home from the hospital after falling himself, that her oldest daughter had fallen at school and broken her arm.
So she and Cathy headed off walking for about 3 miles to find Martha a taxi to the hospital.
Later on Cathy got to do her all time favorite activity...
Which is to stop for everyone she meets.
The day ended with a bunch of women encountering Jesus in Cathy around the village well.
They asked us to come back.
