Today was a big day for the Hope to Walk Clinic. After breakfast the girls went to a ladies' bible study, led by Alicia from the Lynchburg group, while the boys attended a chapel led by Nathan B. After our respective devotionals our group went to the clinic to work on the walls.
We got half of the walls up and screwed in place. The room where the prosthetics will be made is completely walled in and nearly finished. We also finished converting the shelves into work benches. First we had to unscrew the screws that held the shelves together. Then Randall had to cut the shelf down to make the work bench. We then had to take the remaining pieces of shelf and fit them through a narrow doorway. The benches look great and will help in the construction of the prosthetic legs.
The girls and Tristian also played on a playground with children. They pushed them on the swings, played in a tiny home that the kids called a "casita", read bible stories, and practiced their Spanish. At first the children were shy, but by the end they had warmed up to the girls and Tristian.
After dinner we had our nightly devotional, but tonight we joined with a mission group from Arlington, Texas. Their group is building houses while they are here. The devo was really special because we went around the room introducing ourselves and sharing how many times we had been to Honduras. It was a very diverse group with some people having never been to Honduras before and some that have been coming for years. It was just really amazing to congregate with people who are here for the same purpose and share about our experience here.
Parents who sent your kids to Honduras. You can be VERY proud of each and every one!
