March Madness

March Madness... check!

We have wrapped up our crazy month of March - back-to-back-to-back-to-back teams. One month of no breaks, but a very fun month of getting to meet and re-meet a whole bunch of people wanting to serve the Lord over their spring break. It didn't come without it's problems of course. We were plagued by a wave of sickness through our staff (about half contracted something), a robbery in one of our bases' dorm rooms, a robbery at one of our staff's home, and LOTS of rain. However, God is good and brought us through this time safetly and successfully!

Many wonderful things are happening here with SI. Besides a healthy staff family and positive energy  our new women's social work site in the community of El Callejon has a roof, floor, some paint (the current project underway), and will soon have doors and windows!

This week is Semana Santa (Holy Week) which is celebrated here with many fun activites. So on Friday and Saturday at the river are several different competitions including a basketball tournament that Josh is going to play in.

This month we are moving into summer planning and baby prep. Should be a great relaxing month!
