It feels like we have come back home - flying over the lush mountains and green fields of Honduras before landing at the San Pedro Sula airport. Our friends were there waiting for us with big smiles and hugs - Dinora, Denia, Gustavo and Aurora, and also Valeria. Airport check-in and the flight were smooth, and we arrived on time with all of our luggage. Rachel Myers flew in from Pittsburgh, and she arrived a little before us.
The rest of the afternoon was spent sorting through the luggage, preparing for our Sunday visits and getting ready for the rest of the week. Aurora brought us dinner around 7:00 PM, which was chicken and rice with vegetables - delicioso !
We're getting older, because by 8:00 PM most of us were exhausted. . . . . except for Brent. We learned later that he had broken away from our group at the airport and bought himself a
GRANITA !!!! (Caffeine)
Thanks to Jake , Hugh, and Jerry for taking us to the airport safely. And, thanks for all the prayers that have been lifted up for us.
We're looking forward to the worship service at the Mennonite Church in San Pedro Sula in the morning, and then visiting an orphanage after lunch. Pray that we will be open to God's leading at the church with our brothers and sisters, as well as with the children in the orphanage.
We give thanks for our gracious and faithful hosts, and look forward to spending an incredible week with them.
Hoping that we remember to pass along all the best wishes and hugs from our supporters back home to our Honduran friends!
Bob, for our team
