I've Arrived!!

Well folks, apologize for not updating sooner, but I am officially in Belize!
Right now, I'm in San Pedro, on a terrace overlooking the ocean :) I wish I had pictures to show, but I only brought disposable cameras with me so photos will have to wait til I get back.
Things are..different..here..as you can probably imagine. Belize City is a crazy city, and it's been a bit harrowing trying to figure things out and navigate my way around being the only white man in a city full of Creole people.
But most people have been gracious, which has been a blessing. I started teaching at St. John's Anglican school. The kids here a pretty bright, but some need some extra help to bring them up to grade level. That's where I come in. Most of the teachers don't have time to work one-on-one with students who are falling behind, so my intention is to continue working with those students who need the most help in reading and language arts skills.

Next week I am off to Flowers Bank, a small rural village further inland, to work with students there. I may possibly stay there during the remainder of my time here, depending on how things go, or I may come back to Belize City and stay there and continue my work at St. John's. Things are a bit up in the air right now.

Internet connection is shotty at best, so this might be my last update for a bit. Take care everyone, and I will update again soon.
