The galera is almost finished, ramp and all. Next month is feria week in La Paz, a month-long celebration, a month during which Sister Edith plans to sell many pupusas and baleadas and other good things to eat. Our benefactor from the Virginia Medical Center Medical Brigade is in Honduras supervising their many water and health projects. We met with the La Paz alcalde on October 5th and traveled to the new building site to survey the property and place markers for the construction to begin. The ground will be leveled first, within the next two weeks. Then a bodega will be built to house the construction equipment. After that will be constructed a 10-meter tower to support the 3,000 gallon water tank that will supply water to not only the new Hogar San José but to the neighbors to whom we will sell potable water. It appears Sister Edith´s years-long dream is within her grasp.
