Corn distribution in Pueblo Nuevo...the pastor decided to divide the big bags up for them to have a greater outrech with it....so we just went to four "close" houses to give corn, and were back fairly early....
....early enough for me to see my birthday present....Valerie got a perm! It has been at least 13 years, but I still maintain she straightened her hair a few months after we got engaged and it has been like that since (16 years ago) but regardless...I have not seen curly hair for a long time. It was probably one of the best birthday gifts she could have given me.
Lindsey, our other intern (Julia the nurse being the other...she arrived Sunday afternoon, she will be working in the clinic) arrived safely on her long, very long plane/bus journey this evening. She will be helping us administer and work with the groups coming in the next month, and Julia will be working in the clinic helping (among other things of course) and honing her skills over the next six months!
Pray our nutty president here in Honduras Mel Zelaya, would come to his senses and re-open the airport here! This ridiculous situation of closing the airport to what is a minimal long term risk and putting everyone at greater short term risk on the roads here driving back and forth from San Pedro Sula is....so frustratingly crazy it should be laughable. And yet, here we are...with groups having problems getting here, thousands of people wasting thousands of gallons of fuel to get back and forth, and many more thousands of people without work, from ambulatory vendors to zany taxi drivers. It is enough to make you want to go....to God in prayer! Lord knows anything short of that seems to have little impact...in general, and with ol' Mel especially.
