Panama Day 6

Day 6 in Panama was also Independance Day in America. The girls had given us a file to open on July the 4th!

Here it is:
Brian opening the folder first thing that Sunday morning!

Some of the goodies they made us.

It was very sweet! When we first realized the dates that we'd be gone, Holly said, "this will be the first 4th of July without you!" But they had a good time watching fireworks with Sissy.

The outside of the hotel where we stayed in David.

There was a park across the street and that morning before we left for church Brian and I walked around for a minute. They had some beautiful trees and flowers.
Another street vendor in David as we were heading back to Pastor Ricardo's house for church and Sunday school.
Brian and me before church started.

Bro. Kenny & Brian

Pastor Ricardo leading in song with his sons, Jeremy and Arnold.

Brian shared his testimony after they sang some worship songs. He did a fantastic job and I got it on video. They released the kiddos for Sunday school while the adults had worship and preaching. We took the kids to Ricardo and Rosa's neighbors home where there was a nice carport with a breeze blowing. I was very grateful! Pastor Ricardo's house got extremely hot with about 20-25 people in there! The lady that owns the house where we borrowed her carport is a new believer and she is also battling breast cancer. She reminded my of my aunt and had such a sweet spirit!

Bro. Larry David sharing a lesson with the class with Jessica translating.
We also had a Bible story. The children are so respectful and attentive!

They also loved the craft time!

Sweet Glenna and Jessica!

This little girl was adorable!

So was this one!

They made signs with scripture for them to hang in their rooms. But I think they liked them better as necklaces.


Mi amigo, Jeremy!

This little boy was fascinated by the glue stick!
Glenna & Keith (our adoptive parents :)

The Sunday School crew! I just loved getting to be with these precious children!

Again with my friend Jeremy!

Pastor Ricardo and Kenny Morris

Arnold, Brian, & Esteban

Pamela and me
It was hard saying goodbye to this precious family.
After we left Ricardo's we went back to the hotel to change clothes and headed back to our favorite eatery of the week!

Our delicious meal that cost about $2.00!

These soda's were about $.40 each. We had drank orange Crush all week and they were out this day, but that Squirt was pretty good!
After lunch we drove up to Boquete. A town up in the mountains about an 1 hour north of David. There were coffee plantations here and the weather was MUCH cooler. It rained on us almost the entire time we were up there, but the temps were in the 70's so we didn't mind!

It reminded us of Gatlinburg!
There is a Christian couple that owns a coffee plantation and coffee shop that have their property open daily for garden tours. It was beautiful! The flowers were all so bright and colorful.

We were able to go up into a little lighthouse lookout tower.

There was also a "love tunnel"...haha!

Here is our attempt of a picture inside the tunnel. I forgot to zoom out!

They had painted cows all throughout the property. I am pretty sure that sign says, please don't touch the cows! Haha!

Some views of the coffee plantation on the side of the mountain.

See - just like the Smokies!

I thought these looked like fireworks. Appropriate for the 4th of July!

Cafe Ruiz

Brian and I both had a capuchino. Very yummy!
After we left Boquete we headed back into David to eat supper, then we had a briefing in the hotel lobby. Day 7 we were to start our journey back to Panama City, but first a quick trip by the Pacific Ocean!
