Cruz was out of school the week before Easter. It worked out well considering we had a team that week. We assumed he would go back to class on Monday (since there was no note telling us otherwise). We got him up, fed him, got him dressed, and drove him there only to find a note on the gate saying they were closed and would resume classes on Tuesday. Very frustrating! I was very much looking forward to a quiet morning so you can imagine my face when David returned home and I saw Cruz jump out of the car. Don't get me wrong, I was glad to see him, but I got very little accomplished the rest of the day.

I love the look on Cruz's face here!

Some of the 2nd - 6th graders. I think we had 32 of them present this week.
For a school project this week Cruz had to visit a local park in Chiquimula and the Municipal building. They are studying their community this unit at school. We took him to visit those places on Wednesday afternoon.

silly boyThursday afternoon we headed to Muyruco for Bible study.
Here are some of the kids playing before we got started. I had two new visitors this week. They were brothers. They didn't want to sit down and be a part of the group but they stood close by and listened to every word we taught. I pray they will return again next time.
She is the only girl in a family of 7 kids. Isn't she precious!!! I love getting to see that sweet smile every week.
The kids love to run down the hill and watch us as we hike the trail back to our car.
We finished two Bible studies this week and we have two more to go. We'll be in Lagunetas on Saturday afternoon and David will teach in Nearar on Sunday morning. We are looking forward to these times of sharing God's Word and would appreciate your prayers for us as we go. Other than that we plan on having a low-key weekend. We'll see...
