Working on the well

Today, Trey and Anna went up to the Colonia with Henry from Living Water for Roatan.  One of the water wells that supplies water to over a thousand people was having problems and was not generating water like it should.  After troubleshooting the well, they figured out it was a prolem with the flow valve and thus saved a whole lot of time and money in that the pump will not need to be pulled.
Anna got to see some of her old friends that she had met and played with this past summer; best of all, they totally remembered her and were very excited to see her.  She cannot wait for the first mission team to arrive in February so that she can help with VBS and all the fun activities with the kids in the Colonia.
This afternoon we finally got some reliable hot water!  It is only in one shower and not available anywhere else in the house yet, but hey we are not complaining!  The kids were fighting over who got to shower first in the hot water.  The little things.
This evening we lost power for the third or fourth time this week.  But, this time the batteries in the back up generator were not fully charged so we spent some quality time on one of many long walks in the area.  On a good note, we might actually get our container of things delivered tomorrow.  Very excited to have more than two pair of shorts to wear!  Thankfully we did not ship absolutely everything and decided to pack a couple of things in our bags for the plane.  Thank you, God, for that forethought!
Trey and Pastor Jeremy were supposed to go to La Ceiba, but we have been advised by the US Embassy that Americans should steer clear of the mainland because the new President of Honduras is getting sworn in on Wednesday.  They are expecting large demonstrations and riots in the streets along with huge crowds of people.  So, needless to say, they will wait until next week to take that little excursion.

Take care and God bless,
Connie and Trey
