Mother's Day in Honduras

Our first full day in Honduras was a busy one. Breakfast at 6:30 and then on to church at Central Mennonite Church located in San Pedro Sula. The team members that were mothers were honored along with the Honduran mothers. The pastor spoke on how valuable a mother is to her family. She is a life long companion to her husband and a teacher and a guide to her children. Afterwards, We shared a special Mother's Day lunch with the church.
In the afternoon we visited the Alpha and Omega Home. It is an orphanage for 18 children. Sherry, one of the team members, prepared grafts for the children which they enjoyed doing...and we enjoyed helping. Our hearts were touched by the children's plight. We attempted to make them feel loved and special while we were there.
We traveled over many bumpy, pot hole ridden roads back to the hotel. We all jumped into the pool for a refreshing swim. The temperatures are in the high 90's and the water felt delicious. After supper, during our team meeting, we reflected on how blessed we are to be serving in Honduras. Even though the task may seem overwhelming and perhaps insignificant, we know our God will help us through and bring fruit to our efforts. To Him be the glory both now and forever more.

For the team,


P. S. Happy Mother's Day to all those at home!
