The half way mark!

So it has been six months now that we have been here in Roatan, Honduras.  That's all???

Seriously though, it has flown by so quickly and we cannot even imagine how fast the next six will go by.  After hosting many different families in our home as well as two teenagers, not to mention helping out lw4r with their short term mission teams; we will be ready for some down time to possibly get off island and perhaps hit the mainland for some regular ol family time.  But it isn't over yet....

This fall we have a family from Michigan, the Corwins, that will be returning to Roatan, with their church this time, to help build a home for a needy family.  We are so excited to have them on the island again because they are such an amazing family and we miss them like crazy.  It will be very rewarding to stand beside them and serve in such a way for a family in need of a headstart to a better life.

Trey and his buddy Mike Tiche are getting the colonia baseball team ready to compete in the fall as well.  These kids are amazing and have grown like you wouldn't believe in their skills and eagarness to learn.  Each kid is so unique and has such potential to anything they want in life; maybe being part of this baseball team will help them get ready for all that God has planned for them.

Anna and Wiley will be starting school in a couple of weeks and we still have not decided whether we will take the traditional route and put them at the bilingual school or try our hands at home school again....hmmm, there are pros and cons to both choices and we just want to enable our children to flourish in whatever environment they are in.  Either way, we will be very busy making sure they have a great education while taking time to serve during our last few months here on the island.

We look forward to hearing from everyone, drop us a line if you get a chance!

Take Care and God Bless,
Connie and Family
