The Mission team departed La Ermita
at 8:30 a.m. for the drive up in the van. There were five in th
team, Bobby - his wife, a sister from La Branza, a sister from
San Ignacio, Luke Baker and myself. When they got on the other
side of Talanga, they came to a very muddy slick hill.
The van started
spinning and they had to park in the ditch by the left side
of the road.
They walked on to school, through much mud and

the future and that their doors will always be open to Helping
Hands. Praise God.
Preaching the Gospel in the school!
