The Week of Ministry

CP 11 is a farming community coop. Everyone is a farmer. They farm passion fruit, lemons, rice, tamarind. They all raise chickens, turkeys, goats, cows, etc. Since there are no refridgerators, we had fresh meat every day, yummy. Electricity just came to the town the day we arrived, what a blessing! Soon there will be refridgerators. Soon they will be more influenced by the world via tv. They all get up at 5:30 to head out to their fields. Uhhh...we didn't :)

Harvesting passion fruit, they harvest up to 2 tons per week!

Okay, you know what this is :)

We ate several meals with this husband and wife. Great people! They have been married 9 years and are still waiting on a child. Please pray for them, they are Hermedes and Carolina.

Having school.

The canal that provides the water for everything. Bathing, flushing, cooking, swimming, etc...

The pastor's house. Everything is from mud brick which keeps the house cooler in the hot temps.

The backyard, corral, etc.

The kicthen.

Our bedroom. Notice the mosquito netting. There are gazillions of those critters. Most people use the netting in order to sleep at night.
