December 4th, 2012 -- A Sad Day at MEDA

The are the precious Oates kids.  They're loading up to go to the airport in San Pedro Sula

Big sister, Kylie, is ready

Younger brothers, Braden and Tyler get ready to go.

Jessica and Kevin smile for the camera.
We miss you dear friends.  We can hardly wait for your return visit in February.  In the meantime, God bless you and your new ministry.

11 For I know the plans that I [a]have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 

Jeremiah 29:11  New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Autumn Season at MEDA

The fountain at the entry gate.  The grass is still green, even in October.

The beautiful ornamental ginger plants, in front of the conference center window, have gotten out of hand and will need to be clipped back

The Bougainvillea blooms all year 'round.

So this is our 'office'

... and here's another gazebo in our 'office'
Thank you LORD for providing such a beautiful place for us to work.  We love our ministry :)

Aprons!  We made aprons

Elga models her apron with lace trim on the pockets.

Lette change the way the lace was applied and added a new dimension.

Sandra models the apron that Mari made.
Each lady added her own personal creative touch to her apron.

The House Has a Roof !

The metal "tile look"  roof is on.

A view from the kitchen door

This is what the inside looks like before the ceiling and insulation.  Yes, we do want insulation to help soften the sound of rain and cool the house in the summer (which is almost year 'round)

Jesus Christ.
It is the name which is above every name
Maya coffee is not my favorite, but it is quite popular.

These are typical billboards we find painted on the mountain sides traveling along the major highway, CA-5

One of several pottery vendors found along the roadside.  This vendor is on the south-side of  Siguatepeque on the road to the capital, Tegucigalpa.

August 30, 2012. It's a sewing day at the church.

The ladies are excited to learn how to use the sewing machines

Reina is working on the pocket of her apron

Elga (left) and Lette (right) put the trim around their aprons.

These ladies enjoy a sweet time of fellowship as they learn to sew and make something useful.

We have so much fun working together to make aprons.  The projects were pretty and functional.
