Honduras 2017

Our mission trip was amazing, beautiful, tiring, emotional, taxing, fun, and busy.  We love the country and all our dear friends down there.  This was my 7th or 8th time to go in the last 10 years.  Its always a blessing to me and a humbling experience.

Here are some pictures of our journey ~

our kitchen for the week ~ we prepared food for 25 people + extras for church folks

Our sweet Mirna with the quilt I made for her little baby son

Gregs cook station for the week

delicious fresh fruit in January

Austin and Amy got up and worked in the kitchen for Breakfast and then went our with the medical team for the day....every day!

My awesome chef at work

Amy & Mirna

Me and Glinda ~ the church housekeeper

young man who cooked our chickens one night!

This dear lady was lightning fast with the tortilla making

the pharmacy staff at work at one of the churchs ~ Amy's first time with a medical team

Austin worked in optometry

I started to crochet one day and ended up making many single crochet bracelets and hair ties

my favorite drink ~ Pepsi needs to sell it here

Floor to ceiling fabric at the local store ~ spent $23 and came home with 9 unique yards of fabric

Made up a new dish ~ Mexican Lasagna ~ layers of grilled chicken, tortillas, ground beef and lots of cheese and salsa

I could sit at the beach and listen to the waves crash for hours!
Thankful for ~ 

*another opportunity to serve the Lord in this wonderful country
*sweet visits with most of our friends down there
*feeding our medical team
*a walking buddy (Greg) thru town (about 7 miles logged on our fitbits daily)
*delicious cantaloupe and watermelon in January
*watching Amy and Austin work together
*the premarriage counseling they received while on the trip
*a relaxing time at the beach on the last morning
*Wonderful hugs & a few tears
*God's protection as we walked to and from the church each day (5 blocks each way)
*for the internet (spotty at best) to hear about the inauguration and the Falcon's win and going to the Superbowl!
*for serving the Lord with our mission team friends again

*and really thankful that I have a home with no staircases to climb multiple times daily ~ climbing to the 4th floor to our room was not fun everyday.
*thankful for clean water and warm showers
*for being able to shop locally without heavily armed guards in the stores
*for the quietness of my home
*for the opportunity to see that Lord at work in other parts of the world
