Love the people
Seeing the looks on the boys faces when we told them we were installing an artificial turf. Hector began to cry and said he and the boys have been praying for this. Ask and God shows up!
I have grown to love our friends there so much and I look forward to seeing them every time I go.
Our Honduran friends telling each other to be patient with us visitors while we are mixing cement. “Let them try, it makes them happy.”
I see God working there and I want to be working where God is. I can use the the skills God blessed me with to build things that will improve people’s lives. I like to see that something I worked on has added value to the community.
Putting a Bible in all 4 corners of the school when it was being built – the school is built on the word of God!
I love the team that goes from Chets Creek Church, it is the best of all
Nick’s carnitas tacos
Staying up late playing Uno with the team and singing songs with the
kids in the school.
I care for the people of this community and feel that this is where I am supposed to be.
The sister of our friend David makes a kind of donut I have only ever tasted there. Definitely on my favorite list!
While the synthetic court was being installed we couldn’t keep the kids off of it! Seeing them roll around the turf with smiles and laughing as the guys were trying to unfurl the rolls of turf. Hearing them say that they have been praying for this moment and thanking God for answering their prayers.
We’ve built relationships there. I feel that God has given me this role to fill.
I haven’t had the opportunity to eat iguana yet, I really want to, until that happens, I will say chicken wings from one of the local little eateries.
Stirring up the kids to be rambunctious during an English lesson and Linda almost kicking me out of class.
Typically each morning we are working someone will shout, “Baleadas?!” and that is the queue that it is time for someone to make a run for baleadas. It’s the shared joy and laughter each time it comes up, and the fellowship that we get to have with each other as we partake in the heavenly goodness that are baleadas. It’s a simple reminder to myself that sometime the most enjoyable moments aren’t necessarily the biggest and most elaborate.
