For Easter weekend Maria, Mallory and I had the opportunity to spend the weekend in Cayos thanks to our friends Ana and Demetri. They rented a boat so we could go island hoping when we wanted and we stayed in a hostel on East End where Ana works. It was an amazing weekend… it truly was paradise. The snorkeling was awesome and we also went on a night hike where we came upon a light house, which of course we climbed and could see for miles all around.
Maria had to opportunity to use her nursing skills while on this excursion. A local teenage girl had an asthma attack and needed medical assistance. Maria being a nurse and having plenty of experience with asthma patients stepped right in and brought her back to a stable condition. Saving people might be an everyday experience for a nurse but I know it was miracle that Maria was there and there is no doubt in my mind that God had her there for a reason. It’s nice to know that we are a part of a bigger picture sometimes.

It would not be hard to get used to this scenery

Mallory… when we left she was making plans on finding a job in La Ceiba so she could live there for an extended period!
