Catherine Adams

This is Catherine Adams, our newest intern! Actually she was just here for the week to scout out locations for a six month internship for the first of next year. She is from our home church and we watched her grow up. She's like one of our own kids!
Catherine wants to work with children next year, so we looked at several orphanages and children's homes. Here is a photo of us checking out New Life children's home in Villa Nueva. Kara and Daniel Harris (from Atlanta) are two-year missionaries there and gave us a great tour of the place (complete with Southern accents)!

At Kids Alive in San Lucas, one of the housemother's daughters attached herself to Johnny and wouldn't let anyone else hold her! She's actually giving Johnny a hug here - and he loved it! He always did attract the women!!
Pray Catherine finds the location God wants her to be at. She is now back in the States starting her support raising.
I hope you like the changes on the blogsite. I needed a change!

New Basketball Court

The new basketball court is almost finished! In late August, the basketball goals were put in place and painted. Lines won't be painted until after the rainy season, late October or November, but that hasn't stopped the games!
We have already had one church visit and use the court, but at any time during the day, you might find neighborhood kids out there playing basketball or soccer.
And some who are no longer kids!

Aren't they beautiful?

Johnny has his work cut out for him! Today I bought 13 rose bushes for the Camp. When they are the equivelent of about $1.50 each and so very beautiful, it's very hard to stop at one.
But you have to come visit to see them for real!
Until then, enjoy the pictures.

Another Status Report

Johnny and I have spent 3 1/2 wonderful days in Tapachula, Mexico! We had to renew our visas and it required leaving the country for 72 hours, so we chose the closest border - Mexico. We have spent every morning by the pool, just sitting, reading and swimming, and every afternoon listening to the thunderstorms! Sometimes we were out in them, sometimes we stayed in the room. But it was a relaxing time and accomplished our visa renewal at the same time. We will head back to the Camp this morning, before the rains have time to start. We will be crossing the border around noon, so keep us in your prayers.

While we are in Tapachula, we had internet access and saw where another hurricane will be hitting the eastern border of Guatemala and Belize. Please pray for the people in the lower, coastal areas that will be hit, they have a tendency to flood. Also, we in the mountains will get rain from the outer bands of the hurricane, even if it doesn't come this far west. Pray we don't get so much that it causes landslides. We will keep you posted as we are able.
