Our vacation too rurrenbaque was INCREDIBLE.  When we set out…we had no idea what was instore for us.  The pampas tour sent us swimming with alligators and dolphins and searching for anaconda´s (WE FOUND ONE!!!  or rather our guide found one…but we got to touch one!) and we have pictures to prove it.  We saw lots of beautiful birds…many alligators and cayman…and some big rodent thing.  We took an early morning boat ride to watch the sunrise, and it was incredible.  It was a beautiful reminder that the glory of the Lord is all around us if we will just open our eyes and recognize it. Special thanks to a member of Christ Community Church for recommending the cheesecake at julliana´s it was INCREDIBLE. 

So we finished up our vacation and headed back to Ixiamas to prepare for the arrival of the kids this weekend…However…vacation has been extended….once again. The 2 week vacation is officially a month long now. 

We are sad to not have the kids back, but another week of vacation will allow us to finish all of our projects.  Abby´s cook stove is coming along very nicely.  She and Katy have been working hard making bricks and designing a beautiful stove (just pray it works….)  We´ll test it out this week before the kids get back.

Bryan´s working hard with Maestro on the new building, and it looks like my ferro-cement tank is going to come together afterall (i will never again take for granted sewing machine´s or cement trucks).  It´s been hard, but very rewarding work. 

Sorry for the lack of pictures.  Seems it´s a little more difficult to upload than we anticipated.  If we get a chance we´ll send some your way. 

Back to work for the day!
