 The Preteens Final Week in Honduras

The Preteens Final Week in Honduras

Hello to all our family & friends!

It has been a wild and busy last couple of days here in Santa Cruz and we wouldn't have it any other way! The team has been going very strong and are truly enjoying the time of ministry. Everyone is saying how crazy it is that we are already looking at our last week in Honduras.

Our weekend was truly blessed as we were able to work a little bit on Saturday and in the evening play a game that Miss Sarah wanted to play called "4 on a couch". Because of our lack of couches here, the kids called it "4 on a bench". We had the enitre team playing, the leaders, and even some of the Honduran staff kids joined in! It was a loud and fun night.

On Sunday, the team enjoyed going to a new church and performing their presentation for the congregation in the morning. For lunch, the team had the opportunity to go out to a Honduran BBQ spot here in Santa Cruz and the kids loved it. We had most of the placed reserved for us and it was a joy to see the kids kick back while enjoying each others company. After a filling lunch, the team piled into the truck and did their last presentation for the summer.

This next week the team will be working Mon-Wed as they close out their project portion of the summer. Thursday will be a fun sightseeing day! Friday we will be packing up and cleaning up around the base. On Saturday, the team will depart from Santa Cruz for San Pedro Sula and have a afternoon of souvenier shopping before going to the Hotel for the night. Sunday morning the team will be waking up early to head to the airport to start the trek home for debrief.

We wanna thank you guys for the prayers as we have been blessed in more ways than you could imagine! Our team is healthy, safe, and in great spirits. Please continue to lift us up as we head into this last week here. As leaders, we want the kids to maximize the time and enjoy each other as they serve our amazing Savior.

Here are some specific things that you guys can be praying for as we go into the weekend:
1. That the team would finish strong in every aspect of the trip
2. A heart of gratitude for everything the Lord has done
3. The kids continue to grow in their relationships with Christ

Here are some words from some of the kids:

"The people are nice. The food is amazing and God too. God has shown everyone He can do everything." - Luke V

"I love the people and God has been so patient with me. It has been so much fun." - Rivers E

"After having a hard struggle through my life, the Lord called me to Teen Missions. From here, the Lord has spoke to me in many ways. Honduras is very cool and enjoyable. I love how the natives are very polite to outsiders." - Hakim H

Greetings! The kids are starting work today.

Greetings! The kids are starting work today, they will be moving dirt and rocks and mixing cement. The weather is mild with heat in the middle of the day, it rained on our bus ride from the airport to the base and then again last night. It's nice out now with grey skies.

We had a team Bible study last night and the kids were engaged in Mr. DanielĀ“s teaching and sharing. We have presentations lined up for Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The kids have enjoyed exploring the base, they woke up yesterday and did laundry. They all enjoyed it and a few said it was actually fun. There is an area for laundry that includes washboards.

Everyone is healthy.

Ola from a hard working Honduras Preteen Team!

The team has been going strong straight into their first work week. They've been pouring concrete each and everyday for the road that leads up to the base and are gaining major muscles while they do it! Hosea Blair said in today's work session, "we're gonna be jacked by the end of this summer". Folks, he's not wrong. The kids have been hauling wheelbarrows of sand, stone, gravel, and concrete up and down the inclined road in a very impressive manner. Their heart for the work is contagious and they're growing each and every day in their character as they go on. As leaders, we've seen God really unify this team in ways that only He can. They step up for each other when they see a friend in need and it's awesome to see.

Happy 4th of July from the Honduras Preteen team!

The team is coming off a big first week of ministry here in Santa Cruz. So far, the team has poured concrete for the road up to the Teen Missions base, painted some of the cabins on the base, and have given their presentation at 5 schools and 1 church!

Hello from beautiful Santa Cruz, Honduras!

Wow, time is flying by here in Honduras. The kids have been working hard in every aspect of the ministry as we've been here and they're truly getting to see the result of their efforts. The road to the base is really coming along well and they continually amaze us leaders with their heart, drive, and spirit as they pour concrete each and every day. They are also getting to see the fruit of their ministry through the presentations they put on for the schools nearby.

The Final Days in Honduras

Greetings from your favorite preteen team!
The days are becoming fewer as the team is now looking at only 3 more days in Honduras. It's crazy to think we've been here for close to three weeks already. We are super grateful to the Lord for all that He has done for us and through us in the time we've been here in Santa Cruz. The staff at the base have been nothing short of spectacular while we've been here. They have been very kind, gracious, loving, and generous. God is truly working here at the Teen Missions Honduras base and we are so honored that we had the opportunity to be a very small part of what they are doing here.
