God put it on Faby's heart to begin working in the community schools. In Cachisagua the director gave her an open door to teach ethics and values. Her vision is to begin with the professors which she is doing here. Most of them are well trained in teaching the regular subjects: Language, Math, Science, and History, but to help the children is their personal development was not part of their preparation. They received Faby with open hearts and minds, and are eager work in this area.

Sunday in Capulispungo, we participated as godparents of this newly wed couple. Not your typical wedding. Both are over sixty and widowed. Children and grandchildren witnessed the ceremony. At the reception we learned through participation one of their traditions. The bride and groom, plus godparents, prepare a special treat to end the event. We mixed soup, barley flour, sugar, cheese, banana, and oil to make a paste. First we had to try it, and then hand it out to all the guests until none was left. It's called "chapo." If we didn't have "chapo" it wouldn't be a celebration.
