Paco – along with his wife Rosario and their two teens Alejandra and Paco, Jr. – work all day each Saturday to hold a day of activities for the Boys & Girls Scouts program we are sponsoring.

The Scouts started in May with 34 children registered. But it became so popular that 167 children attended last week!

The programs include all of the things Scouts would learn in the USA, with a heavy emphasis here on obeying your parents, good moral teachings,keeping the environment clean and some other locally-important lessons. 

Paco has been a Scout leader for 13 years. The children love him and yell out “Paco, Paco” when he drives into the village.

My Apologies!

No excuse for not posting lately – except we have been so very busy. Had some teams and groups here, and they were all a great help and blessing to us and the villagers. Lots of great things happening – Photos coming!
