Monday, July 30th
The roof is finished. That is the main news for today -we capped the roof by 4pm today! Then Gene and I took our first bus ride home without John and got a taxi - no problemo. Now we are having a BIG Thunderstorm so it will be a good test.
We are both tired today - so many trips up and down the ladder and roof work tends to make the legs tired. But we are glad to have the job done and tomorrow we can be tourists with a bus ride to a nearby city - right now the spelling (of the name of the city) escapes me. Ally will come in and meet us and we will leave around 9am. As she said, she needs a day off from someone calling ALLYYYYY every 15 seconds. She is the newest celebrity at Vida y Libertad.
We are able to email by using the Francis’s computer. They have been so hospitable, gracious and helpful. I can’t imagine coming as we did with no language skills and fare as well without their help.
Anyway, that’s about all the news. Bought some local ground coffee and find it very good.We appreciate the prayers and look forward to being home in a few days.
