Recent Changes

Just a few pictures to show what we are doing at Centennial Camp!

Yes, that is a bulldozer - we hired it for the day to dig the trenches for the drainage pipes and level off some ground. He also cut out the area for the bathrooms along the wall of the soccer field.

This is the continuation of the wall that begins in our yard. It will eventually include the bathrooms, a small store, steps and encompass the soccer field.

For those of you that know LBN (the place we usually house our teams), here are more pictures of the continuing construction. This was once the front door.

This was the host home and its back yard. The windows are in the dining room, so all of the kitchen area is gone.

And this is the other side, where the store and laundry is. I will be posting more photos as we go there and I can document it. Can't wait to see the finished product!!

Two days in a row!

For those of ya'll that have complained that I don't blog enough...look at this - two days in a row! Don't get excited, we head back to the Camp today and I'm not sure when I will have internet again!

During the last of February, while we were still in the States, the large pile of dirt in front of the house was finally moved. We have guys out there now extending the wall down toward the highway. This will border the papifut court and will include bathrooms and showers in the corner. This will really be nice since the only bathrooms are now in our house or are latrines!

In the last couple of days, we also got signs put up to indicate the Camp! We now have signs on both sides of the road!!

We have spent the last week with our daughter and her husband, Jennifer and Andy. We've done a lot of sightseeing and Andy and Johnny went fishing yesterday. It has been a great week!

This was a 150 lb. sailfish that was released back into the water after the picture (Guatemalan law). But Andy had a great time catching it!!

New look of LBN

For those of ya'll who have seen Las Buenas Nuevas (LBN) in Panajachel, I thought you might like to see the changes. They are in the process of tearing down the front building (the termites had a feast) and will rebuild. Part of the host home has been taken off also. I will post changes as they occur.
We returned to Guatemala on the 4th of March to an intact house! (Twice before we returned to parts of our roof missing). But we have been busy. Tomorrow morning, I hope to blog on the changes at Centennial Camp and our recent visit with Jennifer and Andy (daughter and son-in-law). Until tomorrow...
