Behind sugar cane trucks (all passed with care) and except for a few toll roads,
lots of pot holes, the trailer is delivered to the Hospital in Orange Walk City, Belize,
morning of the 7th day. Photo: Ron who worked on trailer, Ed who cleared the
entry, and the (now successful) delivery crew

Thanks to everyone for their prayers, the helpful Mexican people who listened
politely to our Texmex, to Jack and Trent Sisemore for their donations, help
with the trailer and the last minute addition of a load-leveler; and to The Lord
our God for his unwavering help and guidance. We never had a flat tire or
breakdown, and were never lost (more than an hour or so at a time, anyway).
