Picture Honduras

There are lots & lots of men with guns around town. They stand guard at stores, homes, restaurants, neighborhoods, banks, delivery trucks, etc. Sometimes they look either way to young or way to old to be bearing such arms. But I think this guy looks like he knows what he's doing!

In the future I will be sure to post pictures of the "before" and "after" of our projects at the church building in Mateo, but this week I wanted to make sure I posted a few of the "during." For their Spring Break, several groups of amazing people from the States decided to make a trip to Honduras, and we have been blessed to work alongside them. Many have been here in the past, so they have been able to share some great stories. And some are here for their first Spring Break (like us!), so we've been able to learn together.
My initial expectations for what projects could be completed this week were WAY to low. Thanks to their experience, work ethic, and enthusiasm, these groups will leave on Saturday having put us 10 steps ahead of where I thought we'd be! Bart & I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone, and we're thankful for their willingness to show so much love for the people of Honduras.

Day at the Museum

Yesterday Bart & I had the pleasure of taking the four kids from Shine! Honduras (the tutoring program) to a children's museum in the city. The museum is called Chiminike, and it kept us busy from the moment we arrived until they closed. Here are a few good shots from the day.

The kids watching their recording of a newscast they just made.
Actually, the 'newscast' was their rendition of "Holly, Jolly Christmas" in English.

Like I said, it was a pleasure for us, too!
