it’s no surprise that me actually committing to this trip wasn’t the easiest journey in the world. remember that time i said no? but the deepest parts of my getting to honduras can wait for another time.
after three days in hot cabins in the woods of georgia my squad was off. we went to airport at 11 pm to catch a 7 am flight. about an hour of sleep in the airport. awesome. from there we flew to miami where we waited for a few hours before finally getting on the long awaited international flight to tegucigalpa, honduras.
we’re working with zions gate ministry for the next few months. tony and his wife nidia are heavily involved in a close little community called los pinos. it’s there where they have spent the last few years forming relationships and looking to make an impact. they’ve taken in over a dozen teenage boys who were once addicted to paint thinner and living on the streets. today, these boys are in a loving home, learning about jesus, going to school, and learning to be all they were created to be. it’s incredible to be a part of.
the ministry property is nestled in the mountains, our view is amazing and the weather has been perfect. rain on a tin roof every night while i sleep? yes, please. our teams are throwing themselves into all kinds of ministries. everything from teaching english to working in the dumps and facilitating church in the streets. it’s an incredible thing to watch these guys come alive. i’m finding so much joy in walking alongside of them as they discover more of who God is and who they are to him.
