back home

taken from the air...almost home!
dinner on the deck... doesn't hurt one bit!

the sunsets are still as beautiful as ever!!
this dress and doll used to belong to emily when she was a girl

... rebecca was thrilled
met these girls on the plane and took them for a tour.  fun!!
jonesville bight... taking it easy!
punta gorda... the real roatan!
look at this cruise ship!  it's huge!!!!!
on sunday we went to infinity bay...  caught up with friends and snorkeled
such a happy day to be reunited with my little buddy!

when we got in on saturday at 4:00 there was a lovely breeze and although it was warm it felt 'right' to be back
life has an interesting way of unfolding and while we were standing in line
at the airport in nova scotia we met a family who was going on a cruise
when i found out they were actually coming to roatan (what are the chances of that?!)
i asked if they had a tour set up and they said it was the only place that they didn't have anything arranged
so... you guess it.. i offered to take them out.
today,  thursday i am going to do that.

another interesting thing happened on our flight home:
 once on our connecting plane in houston i met a lady i knew in vernon bc
(what are the chances of that?!)
as we were talking another lady from new york came up and said
'do you live in roatan?'
then she asked if i would take them out on a tour
amazing huh?
that is how God works
so this week has been busy
not only with tours but catching up with friends, dinners out,
reconnecting with people, working at the shop,

yesterday bob met up with an island lady and she shared some of her struggle
it is hard on the island.
there isn't any work.
that is one of the hardest parts of living here:  seeing the poverty and the desperation

we are praying what is our part in helping them.
please join with us that we would discern His will

after i do the tour today we are going to the Roatan Hospital Concert Fundraiser
and we are going to have a table of the 'made in roatan' stuff for sale.
we are trusting it will be a good sale so we can bless the artisans in our shop

my waking thoughts and going to bed thoughts are of our kids...
as good as life is here and as blessed as we are
i constantly think of them and miss them
i believe that they are in good Hands though:  HIS!

thanks for reading this, praying, supporting!
Lord bless you today.
