Team Next Has Arrived

Team Next (we are not #2) arrived safely in San Pedro yesterday afternoon. John met us at the water taxi and helped us lug our suitcases to Ruby's. We had just about settled in when the rest of Team 1 returned from their final day of work at Holy Cross. All 33 of us had a great dinner with lively conversation. We shared Compline before ending a very long day -- Team Next had been on the move since about 3:00 AM.
Today has been leisurely -- some went to Lamanai; others snorkeled; many shopped; everyone relaxed. Team Next is adjusting to the heat, sand and ocean breeze while Team One packs and gets ready to head home. It has been great to "overlap" so we could share information and fun.
Team Next is eager to see what our tasks at the school will be. We anticipate continuing the work begun last week but there are some equipment issues that must be resolved first. We are also looking forward to being in the classrooms with the children.
Stay tuned -- we will keep you up to date as week 2 of the St. Luke's mission adventure continues -- pictures too!
