The following is part of an email that was just sent from the area in Honduras where I help with schools and clinics. I am sending it because I want readers to get a glimpse of what is going on down there:
My friend writes: "We are constantly reminded that we are in a third world country. Though we finished the improvements to the clinic and Mike ---- is here to help train and set up the Malaria Control Center, there has been no water to the clinic because a Boa was stuck in the tubes and the microscope with supplies is stuck in customs because there is a “resistance group” sneaking in arms to build an army to bring back the ousted president Mel Zelaya, to power. Meanwhile Jose and ----- have been asked by the Mayor of ------- to build a road and a city dump with our bulldozer free of charge. These kind of things never seem to happen in the United States."
