Sunday, July 20, 2008: Christian fellowship

We had "church" this morning but it was not our usual church. First there was Sunday School and Bryan got to watch a video and some have some discussion with the adults. I was at the Children's Center for Sunday School where Judy has a little lesson fro a few kids. My kids were not entertained by the Spanish puppet show but they did enjoy playing with the puppets.

After that we had church in the little chapel beside the hospital where we listened to a sermon by Alaster Bagg on the computer. The kids did pretty well sitting but it only lasted about 15 minutes of the 30 minutes.

We had a wonderful lunch at the McKenney's beautiful Tuscan home. A few other's were invited and we ate some yummy grilled chicken. The McKenny's are the people that started everything down here from nothing. It is quite amazing what they have done in such a short period of time (about 8 years). We hungout there for awhile and saw a very mean bull sheep ram its head into their daughter, Hannah. She is one tough 10 year old girl and Jaden is obsessed with her.

We had a lot of fun going to a waterfall in a freshwater river in the late afternoon. It was a little difficult for the boys hiking over lots of rocky areas but we managed. The events of the day included driving through 3 rivers, Bryan diving into the water off a cliff by the waterfall, and Bryan and Clay going doing a rock waterslide into a deep pool created by the falls. We had a nice and late spaghetti dinner prepared by me that we shared with Dr. Renee. She is the friendly, young doctor who took us out to the Bamboo falls today.
