So that was the excitement for the week. The reality is that this sort of thing could happen anywhere (when I lived in England there was a double murder just doors down from our house). It does remind us of the need to use caution when walking in town. Our hall has a security light outside that isn't on most of the time because they can't afford the electricity. We're going to try and do something about that.
One week and we are off to Bluefields and Corn Island. We are so excited!

One of Gary's studies is a teacher at the local University. He has asked Gary to come in this week and make a biblical presentation to his class. Very exciting.
We are now up to 10 scorpions that we have found in the house.....and counting.
The water issue continues to be a real drain (no pun intended). Last week from Thursday at 2 pm until Saturday at 6 am we had none! Saturday was on from 6 to 4 but only a trickle and then finally Sunday during the day was okay. Today, we are out again! We will try and talk to the owner's one more time.
We have seen a vehicle that looks like it will work for us. A 2000 Hyundai 4X4 Galloper. A Special Pioneer Couple are selling it at the Branch. We are in the process of trying to get funds from Canada to here. Not as easy as one would think......
We have booked our flights to Bluefields for the Special Assembly Day and then on from there to Corn Island for 4 days of R&R, snorkeling and lobster! July 31 we leave. Can't wait.
Little Kitty Boots was taken to the vets and diagnosed with a bacterial infection so he has had meds and is one the mend....and the diarrhea all over the house (try cleaning that up without water!) is slowing down. He has started to gain weight back again and we think we have found both him & Fresca really good homes. Until they are 100% we will keep them then they go to their forever homes. A heart breaking decision but we are relieved now that it is made.
I think that's it. Appreciate all the e-mails from home and comments on the blog. It helps keep us sane :)
