|what a joy to see terry and mike again! and they were sooo generous!|
i am excited because we are starting to get some repeat visitors. the people who came to the island last year and now eager to find the shop again. it was great to reconnect and they were happy to see more artists and more selection!! the little boy in the photo is moses who is from punta gorda - part of the garifuna. his brothers have learned to make the sense link work necklaces that their father made and we are selling them left, right and centre!! this week when we paid their mother she was soooo happy and said the money would be for christmas clothes for her boys. it really does help the island people and we appreciate people's support!! thank you thank you!

that is just one example of what sets the 'made in roatan' shop apart from regular shops. we don't mind going the 'extra mile'.. whether it be helping people find what they are looking for (even if it isn't in our shop), arranging for local tours, or sending art through the mail. It is all because of Him! God has given us such a love for people that we often go beyond the call of duty. why?? His love constrains us!!
