People waiting to see what kinda gifts the First Lady brought to give them. ;-)

What a crazy time this was! There was estimated to be around 3000 people that came to see the President and First Lady. We had 3 days to prepair for this visit. It all started as Tiff and I were fixing to drive off for San Pedro (2nd largest city in Honduras) to do some purchasing for the clinic and to buy goceries etc. The phone rang and it was the mayor (Francisco Cruz) and he informed us of the desire to have the presidential visit and wanted to know if the mission property was available. We said yes and so the work began! It was a very exciting time and we have memories that we will never forget.
