Friday visit to the Rama Mainland
LISA LANDIS- After our visit to the Rama Island we got back in the boat and traveled not far across the bay to the Rama Mainland. This is where FIA is working to build a village for the Rama people. A man named William is letting Friends in Action use some of his land to construct houses, teach the people agriculture, and generate wind power. This is where Karlita Bravo and her little brother and mom and dad live. They are the national missionaries with Central American missions who are partnering with the work of Friends in Action.
Here are some pictures from our Friday visit. The couple pictured is William and his cousin, the boats are their fishing boats and the cabin is one of the new cabins FIA is building to house works teams. The other house is the Bravo house and the base where Tim and other workers stay. I had a sweet siesta on their hammock. Nothing like being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the jungle. The church is also pictured below. The shot across the water is looking at the Rama Island from the Mainland.
As you see we left to go back to Bluefields as the sun was going down. Next I will post videos of our Friday visit. I hope to post those as we wait in the airport Monday.
