Honduras Wrap-up

I finally got my pictures uploaded to facebook, and you can view them here if you’re interested.  Unfortunately, there were alot of days where I didn’t have my camera with me, so I missed out on some great picture opportunities.  There were lots of things I meant to get shots of and didnt, such as overall views of Armenia Benito, Buffalo (another community we visited), all of the school supplies for the sponsored kids, and sites around the city of La Ceiba.  Maybe I can get some of those shots from someone else…we will see!

The last few days of our trip, we asked lots of questions about the ministry, visited an ESL class in Armenia, watched the USA vs Honduras soccer game on TV, played with kids, watched Erin pack and repack for Haiti, and visited a local church service.  The church service lasted about 2 and a half hours and was very different than our church at home.  Of course, everything was in Spanish, so I couldnt understand much!  Thankfully, Erin translated most of it for us so we could follow along with the sermon.

Monday morning, we had to get up extremely early and head to the tiny little La Ceiba airport to start our trip home.  I traveled much better on the way home, with only a little nausea and not a single instance of getting sick! I was thrilled that my only complaint was just being tired from travel.

All in all, we absolutely loved our time in Honduras.   We loved getting a chance to know the missionaries there, to hear about their ministries, to talk to them about their needs, and to pray with and for them.  We were excited that we felt God continuing to confirm our call to be a part of a ministry involved in church planting, working with streetchildren/orphans, and discipling pastors.  We were also excited that we continued to feel God’s confirmation that long-term foreign missions is what we should continue to pursue.

Please continue to pray with and for us as we pray about Honduras and continue to seek the Lord’s guidance over our future!

Nate's role in the clinic was to keep records for each patient about what the complaint, diagnosis, and treatment.
