We had a great turn-out for our second tailgate. Thanks a bunch to Julie and Barry for ALL their hard work. Having done the tailgates last year, I know all the behind-the-scenes work that has to get done for one of these. Please thank them when you see them, missioners. Because of their efforts, the Gehlen Catholic Student missioners have their motel rooms in Omaha covered, the meal paid for in Omaha on March 25, and a bit left over to help with some of our water project expenses. AND, the meal was delicious. Thanks to Scooters and many, many others who donated product for the tailgate.
Our meeting is set for Sunday, Feb. 7, in Seivert's room. We will walk you through everything from packing your bag to packing day to returning from Honduras. Bring any questions you have to that meeting, and we'll make sure they get answered. That meeting always gets me pumped up because we'll talk about preparations for our trip, traveling days to and from Honduras, what you as missioners can expect in Honduras, as well as all the little things we've learned from our previous mission trips that will help make this an awesome trip for everyone.
Missioners should have finished all shots required by now - or do so quickly. It wouldn't hurt to contact your doctor for your chloroquine (malaria) prescription. That'll just be one less thing to worry about later.
48 days, 14 hours, 27 minutes until we're on the ground in Tegucigalpa!
