The weather is extremely humid, overcast with the teenciest trace of a warm breeze but it is beautiful. The mountains are so lush with different shades of green. The clouds cover the tops and sneak out from between the peaks. It really is magnificent. I am enjoying our ACA kids as I see them come alive playing with the Miqueas kids and showing their strengths in different ways. I'm so impressed with Glen's hard working spirit and excellent attitude, and what a prayer warrior, too! He has been such a blessing to me.

They are in charge of all operations at the children’s home including planning and supervising all educational, dietary, physical, emotional, and psychological needs of the children.

The Lord gave me an amazing opportunity to meet His beautiful people from a little country in Central America. From the very first time I stepped off the plane in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, I fell in love. I fell in love with the country, with the people, with the extremely hot sun, with the rain, with the children, with La Colorada (our village), with the food, absolutely all of it! As a fourteen year old, I had no idea what to expect out of Honduras; I didn’t know what a ‘mission trip’ really consisted of. We tend to see ‘mission trips’ as outlets for us to ‘help people’ in need.

As I left NY I remembered it was Thanksgiving the following week and grabbed whatever I could find in the house to make the traditional Thanksgiving dishes. All I found was a can of fried onions and turkey gravy. It was at that point I wished I had gone shopping for the items I would need, since I was not sure what I could find in Honduras. Fast forward one week, we are in San Pedro Sula and going to one of the larger grocery stores. We find turkey ($20 for 9.5 lb), cranberry sauce, frozen pie shells and after an hour of searching, canned pumpkin.

Here we are 6 weeks after arriving in Honduras and we’re packing up to go back to New York for 10 days to attend a dear friend’s wedding. We know that this blog is long overdue and there have been so many times where we sat down to write but never published what we wrote.
