Here at Amigos, the school is expanding and construction has begun for the new classrooms. Currently, the school only goes up to fourth grade, but yearly the school will expand with the fourth grade class until they reach ninth grade. During construction, the workers were digging out behind 'agro' (the Amigos farm) and they found a bunch of Mayan artifacts! It was the coolest thing I have ever seen. Below are some photos of the kids and teachers looking for artifacts.
Our second retreat of the year was a silent retreat at the D&D Brewery, Lodge, and Resturant just beyond the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras. It was a beautiful weekend filled with gorgeous hiking trails, some solid God time, good food, and good beer. Below are some pictures I took on my hikes. I would highly recommend going here if you ever come to Honduras.
To end the trip and retreat we all went to see this beautiful waterfall.
and because we work at a children's home, one like the kids.

Every year the Amigos de Jesus bilingual school (where most of our children attend) puts on a Christmas show before are let out for Christmas break. This year, the different grades sang songs such as Rudolph the red nose reindeer, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.
Once a month on Sundays here at the 'hogar,' the volunteers cook lunch for the entire orphanage. Sunday lunches are special days. Every week, a different person from the 'hogar,' such as the lawyer, or the directors, or some of the madrinas or padrinos (the caretakers of the kids) will take the entire morning to cook for the kids. This meal is known to have some of the best food of the week because of all the different cooks.
Below are just a couple of pictures from the last Sunday that the volunteers cooked. On this day, we made hot dogs, fries, and salad.
