This year we will again ask everyone to reserve their tickets so we can plan accordingly. The food will be great and will again include Phebe Wesman's gourmet desserts. The "Denim & Diamonds" theme encourages you to come as casual to as...

As I write the temperatures are headed toward 90 degrees for the third day in a row with no relief in site.  Joe says this has been the hottest he has seen in the 14 years he has been here. Things have been much quieter since the Ramers and Tyrrells left on the 11th. Friday we invited Elsa with her son David and Arely and daughter Brihana for lunch. They were both at the Hogar several years ago. Friday night the young women we sponsor came for...

Busy time in Santa Rosa de Copan this week.  John has been under the weather with a chest cold so I have been at the hogar de ninas most afternoons doing crafts and most of all building strong relationships.  Love spending time with the girls and listening to the laughter and chatter, balls bouncing, jump ropes, jacks and some disagreements.  There are currently 47 girls at the hogar (home) between the ages of 4 to 19, along with marias (girls...

The weather here in Santa Rosa is a sunny 75 degrees which sounds especially wonderful when my friends on facebook are showing me snow with school cancellations.  We went furniture shopping last week and found a nice three piece living room set for the extra apartment we will rent.  We also looked at several houses to replace the one that most of the girls and house mom are in.  We found one that we are going to make an offer to lease for next...
