Now that the 2nd wavers are gone we have busted out the fun! We went to Xela this last weekend and had a blast. There´s a lake there in the crater of an inactive volcano called Chicabal. It was a long hike but it was so worth it.
We payed for the stoves that the LDS Welfare grant is buying for us and they are in production as we speak. There are a ton of communities who want to do the stove project and hopefully we can get to everyone before time runs out.
The pink and green house is doing great. Now that the sun is back out we can do our laundry and it drys the same day. Sooo nice.

This last week Sam & Genevieve took off for Honduras Bay Islands for vacaction and the rest of us were left in the pink and green house running the show. Amy, as offical Assistant (to the) Country Director was in charge of the team and did a great job, i.e. there were no broken bones or robberies. We´ve been trying to get a lot of stoves done so that we can use the grant we received from LDS Welfare Services. Kat´s dad and brother came to help us out. We also have Janet and Chelsea here doing a site visit and we´re enjoying their company too! And we are excited to have the 3rd waivers here in just a few days. It´s going to be a full house!
We also got to go with Enterprise Mentors and a National Geographic photographer out to some villages where we work to take some pictures. It was pretty awesome. Another great project right now is the new library we are going to be putting into the KASTA JIBAL school here in Chimaltenango. Phillis, the HELP Librarian, hooked us up with some book money and we just happened to come across this school that needed help with their library.
Coming soon: Best Chicken Bus picture!
All is well in the pink and green house!
