Honduras Day 3

Hello, this is Camille Cronley. Today was our first day of mission work. At first, we worked on building latrines. There were just two of us to a house. They didn't want much help. The half of us who weren't doing that did bible school for the kids. When we got there we realized we put almost all of our spanish speakers in bible school, and neither of the people in my group spoke spanish (I took French for 4 years. Oops) and we couldn't communicate. After lunch we switched so I got to spend time playing games and doing crafts with the kids of the village instead of building a house made of mud, when they wanted help. The ranch we're staying on is beautiful. There's hammocks on the porches overlooking mountains and huge trees. The only thing is that birds live in the roof. Between the roofs. There's the tin roof that's topped by the terra cotta shingles and the birds live there and they squawk at night. It's also hot, but I love it. Hello blog-reader, this is Colin Calvert. So far, Honduras has been very pleasant. The ranch is very nice and relaxing. The hotel was also very nice. I really enjoy the hammocks they have in front of the dorms. They are very relaxing. The ranch also has a lot of cows and other barn animals. We got to milk the cows this morning at 5am. It's hard to milk cows. We did mission work today and today is the first day. We went to the village and had a great welcome from the villagers. The children were very nice and adorable. I went to one of the villagers house to help build a latrine. I didn't do much. I brought the cinder blocks to the builders and I made some plaster. I didn't do any actual building. We got lunch after that. Until 3:30, I was doing VBS with the kids. The kids are adorable and a lot of fun. I had a lot of trouble communicating with the kids though(I'm taking french in high school). We played games with them and did some arts and crafts. It did become chaotic at times, but the kids are great. Overall, Honduras has been an enjoyable trip.
