A Visit From Friends

On March 15-19th we had a visit from some friends from Oklahoma.  Long-time friend and pastor of Northpark Trinity Baptist Church of Claremore, OK, Scottie Titsworth, arrived with Ashley Piguet and his daughter, Nicole.  We had a great time while they were here.  Scottie had the opportuniy to do Bibile Studies with our young ladies and was able to preach at our parents' visitation day and at one of our nearby churches.  Ashley and Nicole also did some special music for the services and also spent a little time teaching some of our girls how to play a few chords on the guitar.

Yessinia Has a Baby Boy

Friday, May 7th started with a 5:30am wake-up call from the children's home.  The voice on the other side was one of our guards informing me that Yessinia was having labor pains.  I quickly got myself together and headed out the door to pick up our director, Veronica, and race to children's home to see what was going on.  Quickly we gathered up clothing, sheets, baby clothing, toothbrush, toiletry items, and the medical file and stuffed them all into a duffle bag and rushed to the truck to take Yessinia to the hospital in nearby Jinotepe.

April-May Birthdays

April and May were months with many birthdays.  Ivan David and I (Karl) celebrated our birthdays on April 14th.  Ivan turned one year-old and I turned a lot older than that.  I was a great day.  We did the typical activities with the pinata and then were entertained by some of the girls.  Some sang and others did folk dances for us.  It was a fun day.

Katherine Has a Baby Girl

On the morning of May 18th, twelve year-old Katherine went to the health center for her final check-up before she was to give birth.  The nurse at the health center was a little concerned about the heart-rate of the baby so she was sent to the hospital in Jinotepe.  Upon arriving, she was checked-in and sent to the maternity ward and began the long wait.  On Friday, May 21st, she was taken into surgery where she gave birth to a baby girl by c-section.
