Barbie and the Crew take Tejeras

Rise and shine and give God the glory! After a wonderful breakfast prepared by the awesome Sandra and Gloria, we loaded up for the new church in Tejeras. Our mission today was to chisel out channels in the walls and pick axe trenches for preparation of electrical wiring and to dig a ditch to supply water to a spigot. Some of the group worked under the shade of the church’s roof, while the rest played with balls and bubbles with the sweet children of the area. It is always humbling to interact with these kids and watching their faces light up as you hand them a cracker or a tennis ball.

After another delicious lunch, the crew headed to Goyita’s business to watch the USA fight a valiant battle against Belgium in the quarterfinals of the World Cup (at the Hondurans’ request) 🙂

As we walked back to the ranch, we were awestruck by the fame of Barb in the village of Quimistan. People flocked out of their homes to catch a quick glimpse of her. “Hola Barbara” echoed through the valley! One day, I hope I can be as popular as the Great Barbara!
