Today was our last full day in Panama. We swam in the morning and then right around lunch John and Doug, his teaching partner/friend, showed up! What an amazing surprise. They stayed for lunch and of course all three kids wanted to sit by Daddy. We then swam as a family one last time...and then John was gone again. It was so good to see him! He really enjoyed white water rafting- fell out a few times, lost his shoes (Opa's shoes actually) and seems really impressed with the students. His schedule for the next few days is as follows....
Jan 11 + Worship Service in Bocas Town and Bike trip/Cave
Jan 12 + SCUBA
Jan 13 + SCUBA/Surf
Jan 14 + SCUBA/Surf
Jan 15 + SCUBA/Surf
