Today is our last day in Santa Cruz.

Today is our last day in Santa Cruz.

It has been a nice time being here over the past several days.Along with our regular Bible study, classes, devotion and library times, we also had the opportunity to do several different work projects. The climate here is a little cooler than La Moskita, and we have enjoyed the change, although we miss our friends we said goodbye to on Tuesday.

Wednesday we celebrated another birthday (Candice C.). We surprised her with a piñata to celebrate her day to close out the evening. Everyone enjoyed watching her do her best to get into the piñata to free the candy!

Thursday we enjoyed a sightseeing time, visiting a waterfall about an hour away. After having a time to swim and play in the water, we hiked about 5 minutes to view the waterfall which was beautiful!

Friday was spent mostly packing out and getting ready for the next part of our trip. Saturday we leave for San Pedro Sula for souvenir shopping then we’ll be staying at a hotel near the airport. Early Sunday morning, we leave for Florida to begin debrief.

The summer is quickly going by, and we have cherished this time together. Pray for safely as we travel and that our team will finish strong and grow each day in our walk with Him.

Here are some testimonies from our team:

Ethan P.
What’s good!? My name is Ethan, I’m on the Honduras team this summer. I learned that we need to be grateful and we need to be patient.

Jess D.
This trip has allowed me to have a greater appreciation for God’s Word and for His presence. I’ve struggled with anxiety for years, and although I still struggle, it is so much better. I am grateful for the people, the events, the challenges, and the blessings God has given because it has allowed me to put my faith into action.

Luke W.
Our trip is almost done! I have really enjoyed this summer, especially playing with the children and have grown a lot over this past month and a half. I am grateful for the team, and I am so thankful for those I have met.

Samuel G.
As the summer comes to a close, I can most definitely say it’s been one to remember. I’m very thankful for all the amazing people I’ve had the the opportunity of meeting and friendships I’ve found. Presenting for the kids was an awesome experience as well as working on the base. I’ll be missing the wonderful people of Honduras.

We've only been here as a team for five days,...

We've only been here as a team for five days, but it seems much longer! The days are long; it is very hot and humid and there hasn't been much rain. However, the Lord blesses us with nice cool breezes, great times of conversations with the team and evening rallys that are filled with the Holy Spirit.

Four more days remaining at Boot Camp!

Today is Tuesday, and we only have four more days remaining at Boot Camp! It is flying by, and we are getting excited about leaving for Honduras in less than a week. Since our last report, we have enjoyed some delicious pizza and chocolate milkshakes, followed by a movie night (on Sunday).

The Honduras Teen team has arrived safely in Honduras.

The Honduras Teen team has arrived safely in Honduras. They will be doing a report soon.

This is our first official report since arriving to Honduras on Monday

This is our first official report since arriving to Honduras on Monday. We are currently en route to La Mosquitia, and we finally have a signal to send an update.

Honduras Teens in La Mosquitia

First of all I want to apologize for the delay in our report. We have had a full with week of unexpected, extended travel and lots of rain.

We left for La Mosquitia about 4am on Wednesday morning. After driving about 5 hours on the bus, our trip came to a halt as we were driving through a town. After sitting for a little while, we found out the locals were protesting recent changes made in their government. The protest was blocking our main route, so we ended up staying there for about 9 hours. We are thankful for a local family that allowed our team to use their home for restroom breaks throughout the day. Because of the long delay and still having at least 6 hours of travel, we had to find a hotel to stay in for the night. We were able to continue our trip the next morning. After about 4-5 hours by pick up trucks and a boat, we arrived at La Mosquitia. The staff at the Teen Missions base had a nice supper waiting for our team.

We have had a productive week as our team has been ministering and working.

On Monday, we began the boat ministry with the circuit riders from the TMI base here in La Mosquitia. Since our team is so large, we are able to split in half, with the two groups rotating each day. One group goes out on the boat circuit while the other stays at the base to work. The main work project now is preparing to put up a fence around the property. There is a lot of steel tying happening as the rebar will go into the fence posts along with cement.

We are in our last full week at La Mosquitia.

Today has been one month since we meet each other as a team for the first time!
The work project is going well as they’re working to put up a fence around the base’s properly line. Over the weekend, both evangelism (EV) groups went out, one on the boat and the other a ten minute walk down the road. Both EV teams did really well with their presentations and enjoyed their time out. Sunday, we went to a different church, shared a presentation and played games with the children in attendance.

We have had a full week so far doing the work projects and evangelism.

The rain has held off this week so we’ve gone out each day on the river in the afternoons and continued work putting up the fence. The team has really loved playing with the children each day after doing their presentations. This seems to be the highlight of each day. As we get closer to the end of our time in La Mosquitia, they’ve also been excited to see progress in the work they’re doing. We have 2 1/2 days left of work and EV before leaving on Tuesday for Santa Cruz. The time is really going by quickly.

As our time in La Mosquitia has come to an end...

As our time in La Mosquitia has come to an end, we have stayed very busy over the last several days. On Friday and Saturday, our two groups had the opportunity to work on the fence project at the base and take their last trips on the river with the base circuit riders. On Friday, there were over 100 kids at the village. Our team really enjoyed spending time with them!
