The Heelan team walked up the runway shortly after 8:15, to the cheers of their families and the Gehlen Catholic Mission Team. Although the Heelan team was sad to leave their Honduran friends, you could see the joy on their faces as they hugged their family members.
The Heelan Team has now passed the torch on to the Gehlen Team, who boards their first flight at 5:40 Thursday morning. Our team will be doing a water project in the small village of Picacho. We'll try to keep you posted with as much information as our internet signal will allow. If we can't get through, you can count on Richard Seivert to post our blog with the info we'll send via cell phone.
Stay tuned for the next mission team excursion!
