Hello from the Honduras Preteen team!

Hello from the Honduras Preteen team!

Hello from the Honduras Preteen team! 

Wow, we can hardly believe we've already been in Honduras for nearly 5 days! Things have been going very well, and we're enjoying our time here. 
Since our last update we said 'see ya later' to the teen team as they made their way down to the other base in La Mosquitia. Since then we've had the base to ourselves so to speak. Along with the Teen Missions staff and students here in Santa Cruz. Who have all been so kind and welcoming to us. Once we got settled in, we started getting into our routine. Wake up is at 6 AM and the kids start off the day with Library Reading. During this time the kids are able to read a book about different missionaries and their lives. After that we have breakfast and personal devotions. Normally after we finish our devotions we have a couple people share about what they read. This has been a very fruitful time and we have enjoyed hearing from one another. 
After this the kids head off to work with Mr. Daniel, and half the time Ms. Sydney joins them. The kids have been working on these two cabins the base has. They emptied the buildings and then tore down the roofing. This was no easy feat. But the kids have done a good job with it. Parts of the old shingles they've wheeled down to the road to use in patching holes to make the road smoother to drive on. This is also a good amount of work as the road is quite a distance away and an incline on the way back up. But they've taken that all in stride. We as leaders are constantly reminding them to 'drink more water!' 
They stop work around 12 to eat lunch and then we have our Bible study time. The kids have been learning more about being thankful and having a heart of contentment. During this time we've had a lot of fruitful questions and conversations which has been encouraging. After this the team goes back to work until 4 pm. At 4 they have bathing and laundry time. It's been fun to have the kids come back in and tell me of all their fun escapades of hand washing laundry! After dinner and free time we have guy and girl Bible study time. The girls have been loving this time together as ladies with Ms. Emily and Ms. Sydney, and ask if we can do it everyday rather than just Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. After guy and girl time, we have evening devotions where one member of the team shares something God has placed on their hearts. Its been fun to hear from the different leaders and team members so far! 
Yesterday, June 30th, we were able to celebrate one of our team members birthdays. Will H. He was KP (kitchen patrol) for the day and we got to make him a special cake! Please see photo below. 
The weather here has been rather interesting. It reminds us a lot of Florida at times. The days are hot and sunny, and we always manage to get an afternoon rainstorm. Yesterday's rain was insane! The kids all made a mad dash to get their laundry off the lines. However, the evenings are nice and cool! That's definitely different than Florida. 
There aren't any natural disasters or political unrest. 
Policies are being maintained. 
Thank you to the families and friends of our team, for your constant prayers. They are felt and appreciated. 
Love, 
The Honduras Preteen team. 

Hello family members of the Honduras preteen team!

We are so excited to be writing this report to you guys—our first report! The team has been at Boot Camp for a week now, and they've already learned a lot.

Hello to the family members of the Honduras Preteen team!

The team seems to be doing well, and unifying together. Today is the last official of training and classes, so they’re doing their best to finish out strong. The team has been asking a lot of questions about Honduras and travel, so we know they’re getting more and more excited to leave. Tomorrow we begin pack out and take down of Boot Camp, and that just makes it all seem more real. We will be flying to Honduras Saturday morning and we can’t wait!

Honduras arrived safely!

We have arrived safely in Honduras and were met by Eleazar.

Greetings to Florida! We're excited to be writing this to you guys from Honduras.

Our travel went as well as can be expected. We definitely had some tight connections, but we praise the Lord that we made them all! At one point we were moving quite quickly through the Houston airport, just to sit on the tarmac for over an hour.

Greetings to you all from the Honduras Preteen team!

We're excited to be writing this email to you all! The team is doing well and continues to grow. The work project here on the base is going well. They have successfully torn down two roofs on two cabins. They went around and picked up all the debris from that. They then worked on coating the wooden beams with an insect repellant to prevent termite damage. They did this for both roofs and they also went around and swept the cabins to clear out debris. Today, because of the rain, they worked inside sweeping the main building.

Hello from the Honduras Preteen team!

The team is doing well and working hard! One of the cabins they have been working on is now complete with a new red roof. They did a little bit of digging around the house to make some trenches for the rain. These trenches will help with the runoff from the roofs. To help prevent any flooding or water damage. They have also been cutting grass and tilling the ground to plant pineapples. The grass in certain areas had gotten really tall, so they got to use machetes. Which they all loved!
