First of all waking up in Honduras is very easy, because the sun comes up so early that at 6:00am you are just awake! Today we were able to go to a Sunday school service in the community. The service was outside someone’s home, and I am extremely thankful for the shade I could sit in. The service was...

Morning came.  Today is another beautiful day to experience God's Miraculous Creation.  We started our day out with cold refreshing showers.  We learned very quickly how precious water is and how we take it for granted.  Water soon ran out during our showers, and there we were still lathered in soap!!  The race was on to see who could...

Just before bed time, Floyd tried to unlock the door and broke off the key in the...

Flight, Anticipation, Ordeal                                                                        Wed-Saturday(19th-22nd)

It was the very long arduous flight without much of a hitch, other than Bette having to share her seat with a very large man who overflowed from his seat to hers.  We never heard that you could order a seat belt extender but he did.

As many of you know, time changes are hard on sleep patterns!  So while we stayed overnight in Johannesbutg, we did not get much sleep.  The next morning we...

There are many things to get finished before we leave. we had planned on taking our old computer along again but found out yesterday that XP will no longer work as of April,2014. That issue was resolved by a gift from a computer store owner who upgraded it.  There are banking and bills to get arranged as well as home care, mail, newspaper, and other such issues.

 Packing what we will need versus what we all want to take...
