Resting, with mixed emotions . . . .
This afternoon we went back to Gracias a Dios and visited with Pastor Juan and his family and other church members. Pastor Juan's custom is to read a letter to us in which he expresses his appreciation for our team and the work that was accomplished, and praises God for the many blessings that he has given all of us. I hope to get a copy of the letter for all to read. We also walked back up the hill to the house that we helped to build for the Turcios family, and presented them with a gift - a wooden plaque with praying hands with the words, " God bless this house." Again, it was a very special time for the team, as well as for the family and Pastor Juan. Saying our good-byes to all of our friends was the hardest thing to do.
Tonight we had our last supper at "Power Chicken", where we had our fill of Honduran foods. We had a great time together along with Gustavo, Aurora, Dinora and Danilo and their two boys, Danny and Derek.
On Monday, we'll be leaving for the airport at 8:30 AM, and finally arriving at Newark around 9:30 PM.
We continue to thank God for the gifts he has given us, the relationships that we are building, and all the blessings that each of us has received. Praying for a safe journey home, and lots of rest!
