Leaving Colombia San Pedro
Yesterday, was our last full day in a village. We had class for much longer than any of us could have expected. Our class was full of tense discussions regarding affirmative action. Following class, Dr. Skon, Amelia, Sarah, Katie, and I went on about a 2 mile walk to "downtown" San Pedro Columbia. During our stroll, we got to go into a couple local stores, meet the most adorable puppy that followed Amelia and I, see an old church, and try some homemade yogurt made by a lady named Mary. Last night, we played with the kids one last time. I always hate the thought of leaving and saying goodbye. Last year, when I left Succotz for Caye Caulker, I cried so hard, heart broken that I was leaving these people that I had learned to love. This year I'm leaving with a smile, not that I'm happy to leave (however, I will be happy to see my family next weekend) but because I know that God has used this time in Belize to minister to me through the people of Belize and hopefully I have been able to do the same.
