Last-Minute Preparations

Time until we're in Honduras: 2 days, 11 hours, 30 minutes, 37 seconds

I know we are all doing our last-minute projects for school, home, or work. Try to take a little time each day to just BE. Let some of that stress you are most likely experiencing drain out of you so you can enjoy the anticipation of this mission trip.

One item that could be useful, if you can get it into your carry-on, is a good English/Spanish dictionary. Don't forget to put your work outfit into your carry-on, as well as any items you will need in the hotel on Thursday night.

Think ahead to what you would like to get out of your time in Honduras. Set some personal goals you would like to accomplish. Think of ways to use your Spanish. Maybe you could learn a few new Spanish words or phrases each day. Shake someone's hand. Smile - it works in any language. Be open to a new culture and try to absorb as much as you possibly can. Teach a Honduran a few words of English. Interact with as many people as possible. You won't regret it.
