First Arrival

The first batch of students arrived today! Their flight was delayed, however. The plane that flies from San Pedro Sula to La Ceiba normally goes on to the island of Roatan afterwards. But today, the flight was rerouted to Roatan first, and La Ceiba second, because the runway lights at the Roatan airport were out, and planes couldn't land after dark! So the students went on an extra ride to Roatan, and arrived in La Ceiba about 90 minutes late.

I brought them home and we unloaded their baggage and then went out for pupusas at the Pupusaria. A pupusa is an Salvadoranian dish, and is like a tortilla/pancake filled with meat and/or cheese. We had a good meal at then came home for a rest. They were traveling for about 12 hours today, and everyone is tired.

Around our dinner table...
Jono and The M, Ryan and Nicole, Kim and Jason,
D, and some guy that wandered in off the beach. As I write this, everyone is cleaning up and making their beds and brushing their teeth and so on. I like having lots of people in the house.

Glad to see that the first shift arrived safely. So sorry to read about your loss. We'll be praying for you during this time. My grandmother taught school in Donna for several years. It's a surprisingly small world.

Yours because His,
