Life in the Mountains

 Ryan's brother Gwynndon has been here for the past week and a half. We have been enjoying the added social life. We went out for supper with Dan and Ruthie Schrock from C.A.M., and got to watch the sunset as well as take photos. We went to the croix-des-bouquets market and were able to do fabric shopping!!! :) On the way out of the market we got caught in a mob, to many people, motos, & trucks at the same place trying to get through. We were shoulder to shoulder with no room so spare. There was a lot of pushing and shoving. Some guys got mad, that definitely didnt help the situation. We were able to get out ok!!   The guys got nursery project started. They also measured out for the new church.  We were able to go relax at the beach as well!! :)
