Subject: One Year Anniversary

January 23rd was our 1 year anniversary here in Honduras.  Can't believe it has been a year, and in some ways, it seems we have always been here.  No doubt this past year was full of rough patches, if not a whole road full, but we are happy that we are here.  Mark, I, and our children agree, we are in the right place at the right time.  Even though things are difficult we love what we are doing.   Looking back over the year I see so much growth in the boys and in my children.  Maybe the farm isn't all we want it to be yet, we are still dreaming of a home where all 4 of our children aren't in the same bunk, a padded playroom for wrestling boys, and I still can't seem to get the point across about the importance of sorting laundry (actually I make the point clearly, just not so important to others!).  But overall we have had a great year of learning, growing, and loving.  We are learning more Spanish, the boys are learning more English, and I believe they truly believe we love them and want to take care of them.   This year I am praying for more workers.  We really would love to have 2 mature youth or college age kids to come help for the summer.  The youngest  boys will be out of school for the summer, and I will still be homeschooling ours.  We will need help!  I am also praying for the boys special needs, and for some experienced farmers to share their wisdom and spend some time here.   Of course we have so many things we believe the Father has given us to do!  It will be interesting to see what are His plans, and what was just ours!   Thank you for loving us, Paula
