#580 our story

A team from South Louisiana arrived.

Some folks from Indiana who have an orphanage in Xela stopped by to ask what they could do with the problems with government agencies & the ridiculous rules. I told them that I had no idea. They have 20 kids.

We have water!

9/27/2003. Dottie and I drove to Patterson where we met up with Pastor Lee & family for a good Cajon meal. We rested by playing pool, shuffleboard and watching the LSU/Mississippi State football game. Back in Guatemala the container we loaded in Gulfport arrived. It was the container with playground equipment and Christmas gifts.

9/28. We ministered at Word of Life in Patterson, La. Following a meal we drove to Lafayette to spend time with our son Tony. We left late and arrived in Lake Charles about midnight.

9/29. We woke up early because our grandson Robert’s school had a grandparent’s day and presented lunch for everyone. It was such a special time as we see our grandchildren and children only twice a year at most.

9/30. Today is our last day in the states as we fly home tomorrow. Naturally Dottie still had a long list of items she needed to buy and pack. We also went to our granddaughter’s grandparent/student meeting for another meal. Her name is Rebecca. Back in Guatemala Eddy and Carlos took Adrianna, Brian & Flory to court. They were deciding what to do with them. The new laws just do not fit every circumstance so the three children returned to Casa.
