     When Jim Pack first told us about our opportunity for serving in Honduras, I thought "Honduras - hot, steamy jungle full of snakes and biting insects". Well, I was partially right. We live in a mountainous forest instead of a jungle. The last two months have been cold and rainy (half inch or more of rain every day). But, I was dead on about the biting insects. The skeeters here circle like sharks when you settle into bed. For some reason they wait for lights out before diving on you and buzzing in your ear. It doesn't help that the farm is home to over 2,000,000 puddles that won't dry out until late March. And yet still, there's something homey about a place where you know the mosquitoes by name.      Yesterday the Mennonites came to butcher a bull for us. It's a little embarrassing how little they charge for butchering ($30) compared to how much we used to pay in Texas ($250). We are making way for the young bull we bought "Red Bull" to be the alpha male. He should be ready in a few months and perhaps a cow will be ready by then (all of them are pregnant right now).
