Weekend Activities

The morning work crew poured cement, made rebar, and got the cafeteria ceiling prepped. In the afternoon we had a change in plans. The normal Saturday Kids Club was cancelled due to a meeting that involved the parents of the school children and occupied the buildings and classrooms, so we went to Picacho instead. They have a zoo we had never been to, so we explored something new.

It wasn't as bad as we thought it could be ( you never know in these developing nations). All the animals were well fed. There was quite a variety: tapirs, racoons, macaws, toucans, monkeys, snakes, deer, coyotes, parrots and more. Glenda had fun carrying on a conversation with one of the parrots. If you've never talked to a parrot... well, you should try it someday.

Sunday morning we went to Pastor Giron's church and enjoyed the worship and  the Word. After lunch we headed out for Valle de Angeles to do some tourist stuff.

Like shopping and the Canopy tour. The canopy tour is a series of 12 ziplines on a mountaintop outside of Valle.

Stephanie was the daring one in our group. She did the "superman" and the "upside down". I refrain from posting pictures of these stunts since I have not obtained written  permission  from her and her lawyer and I do not want to be liable for any blackmail!

That was our weekend! Stay tuned for more about our work week.

For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted,  O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. Psalm 57:10 & 11


  1. Cynthia...you are even smiling during your zip ride. WOW! Looked like it was an amazing time! Look forward to seeing all the pics later!

    1. I was smiling, but you should have seen me at the end of the superman ride I took. Oh. my. word. My muscles knew I had used them the next day!
