this morning we even attempted to go workout at the gym, turns out its closed until next monday!!! bummer....

we left for Panes around 12 and pulled in at 1. we just walked around the village and invited them to a Bible study, then if they sounded interested Osmany read some scripture to them. he read the store in Luke about mary & martha. there is only one church in the whole village and it seems that the catholic church there has pushed them away with the confines of religion. so when he read them the story he told them that we wanted to show them a relationship with Christ and not religion. well the devil was after us today and trying to push us out of the village, and the rain came!!! but little did he know that we were gonna make the best of it, we went to a few more houses and rejoiced as we walked through the pouring rain!!! i think the picture does the memory some justice....

one of the ladies that we met while we were going house to house needed a ride into siguatepeque to go to the doctor, so they hopped into the truck with us. the woman also brought along 2 stow-a-ways... her daughter and a ROOSTER! the little girl was 6 and her name angela, she was the most beautiful honduran girl i have ever seen and she had the sweetest personality! suprisingly enough, i didnt hear the rooster the whole drive back to sigua.

tomorrow i think we might be starting the children's ministry at the hernandez's home church. we'll see..... i think i might sleep until someone wakes me up! haha... that car ride was rough today.

spanish word of the day: LLUVIA --> rain(noun)
