Weekend Update

We wrapped up our visit with our medical team yesterday with a communion service and later with lunch at the Hotel Santo Tomas. They have a buffet there with lots of varieties of everything. Even stewed tongue--YUMMY. Seriously, it's not bad! After we got the team on the bus (we waited a little bit for a few to straggle back in from their fierce bartering in the market), Kemmel and Sheri and I picked up a few groceries in the market and then headed home for a much deserved nap.

Of course while in the market it started raining like crazy, so I pulled out my trusty rain jacket and sauntered through market feeling proud of myself. Unfortunately, I happened to walk right under an overhead tarp just as it gave way to the weight of the water pooled on top of it and got my legs and shoes soaked. One little kid got a good laugh out of it.
Today we were invited to a 1st Birthday party for a little girl from Paxot II. She was born with spina bifida and has done well post-op. The family invited all of the elders of the church and family to give thanks to God for her health and one year of life. It was a great way to spend the morning.

Is this the baby that we visited in the hospital and then you helped with information in The City???

Yes, Lisa was drenched! It was a hard downpour and then to walk under the weight of that water.....I missed a good photo-op.

Yes--she can even stand up now!
