Quenching Our Thirst

I realize that it’s been longer than usually since the last blog post. I can only say in my defense that Laura and I have been very busy as of late. In fact, I wouldn’t say I have much to offer even now. Along with everything else in Nueva Esperanza during this time of year, my inspiration is all dried up. We do, however, seem to be finally at the end of the dry season. On this past Monday night Laura and I were walking home. A couple of hundred yards from our house we passed a little girl on her bike. She was singing. The words were about the coming of rain. Laura and I looked at one another, both with sarcastic grins. But, fifteen minutes later we heard some rain drops on our roof. Then there was actually a downpour. It lasted less than twenty minutes, but after almost four full months without a drop, it was a joyous experience. We have had a couple more downpours since then. They’re ferocious, but they don’t last long. Even so, the ting-ting-ting on our metal roof sounds like a well-rehearsed symphony.

That’s about all I have to say right now. Laura and I are heading off to Guatemala for a vacation we both feel is much deserved. I can’t say how long it will be before I get back to the blog. In the meantime, and as always, I encourage you to visit the Montaña de Luz website at http://www.montanadeluz.org and consider sponsoring one of the children here.
