Our Work is Done

We finished our work at Holy Cross today and bid farewell to our new friends - the children and teachers. It was hard to leave and we had many, many hugs - and some tears - before we started the walk back to our hotel. We were able to move along with several things Team 1 began as well as a few of our own projects. We think we managed to throw a number of starfish back into the sea and make a bit of a difference.
The Valentine's Fair at the school was great fun and raised a lot of money. There were games and prizes, food and a giant inflated slide. The entire Jacobi family did face-painting on MANY little faces.
We had a lovely dinner tonight and are bringing our time here in San Pedro to a close. Tomorrow we return to Belize City and then home on Sunday. Be ready -- we have taken loads of pictures and will be eager to share our stories.
Thank you from Team Next for the prayers and support from everyone at home. We have missed you but have known you were with us in spirit. We'll see you soon!
