Day 5

Hey y’all, its Amber and Ashlyn here for your daily scoop. We first started our day off with a wonderful breakfast. Cereal and muffins have never tasted so good. After that we had our daily devotion time and then a quick group meeting to discuss how the day was going to roll. Today was not going to be a typical day for the team. The kids did not have school toady so we were not going to have VBS today. Instead, we stayed on base for the morning and cleaned the beach. It took us a wapping 2 hours to get it all done but it was worth it. The beach looked beautiful after we were done. Some of us got some sun but no one worry, everyone is ok. After we finished cleaning the beach, we were just in time to catch the boat to the village for lunch. We had a truly American lunch with a little Belizian flare. We had hamburgers, french fries, watermelon, strawberry tea, cucumber and pickle salad, and Amber’s favorite; KETCHUP!!!!!!! Jill made the lunch again. After that, we just chilled in the church with the kids and oh yeah we forgot to tell y’all. Jacob got tinckled on by a dog. HAHAHA!!! After a while we decided to go down to Jill and Emmet’s house for milkshakes and drum lessons. Jill makes the best milkshakes and Emmet plays a mean drum. We just chilled there for a while and we met a couple that were here from the U.K. We all had our turn at playing the drums. Kasey, especially, had fun: braids and all. Yes Ms. Cammie, Kasey actually got his hair braided. We have pictures to prove it. After that, we walked back up to the boat and waited for Vera and the crew, including Grandma, to come back from the city. They got back with food and water and then we were ready to go. It took 2 trips to get us all across the lagoon. Please pray for Mrs. Vera. She fell while getting into the boat and hurt her back and ankle. We think she will be ok. After we came back and got all of the food into the kitchen, some of us went swimming in the ocean, as usual. Dinner is great as well. We had stewed chicken, rice, beans and much more. It was a true Belizian feast. Well, I guess that was about it for our day. Oh one more thing; well, make that a few things. Will some one tell Lisa to comment on the blog. Brian wants to here from her dearly. Mrs. Stacy, Zach asked if you could tell Shai to comment on the blog. And Mrs. Sandy and Mr. Monty, Mary says that she is not feelin’ the love back. Everyone sends their love and please pray that God will open doors in the village for us and that we will be safe!!!!!!!! Yep, Aunt Judy hurt another toe. Again we love y’all and miss y’all so very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To my favorite Son-In-Law,

    HURRY HOME. I spent Saturday afternoon at your house in the garage painting molding. Ya’ll think that it is hot in Belize, you have not been in that garage. Mimi puttied, sanded and painted in the nursery. We ran out of paint but not to worry, we went to Lowes and bought 55 more gallons. It seems that all of the colors in the house are wrong now. Welcome to married life. I hope that everyone is having a good time. Be safe in your travels home. Amber, no screaming on the plane. Zach, behave. And if I get a vote, just leave Aunt Judy there and hope that she does not destroy the village.

    Take care and love to all……Papa (Moore)

    Hey everybody!
    I’m glad to hear that all is going well! Tell Brian that both of his girls are fine and love him very much. The little one misses her daddy and is a little confused about the day and the night right now. She thinks that 11:00 is time to play, or either she is a daddy’s girl and just doesn’t know what to do without you. I’m praying for you all! Continue to listen to and follow what God wants you to do.
