From Abbey Myers:
High tensions, swollen thumbs, sun burns, and strange bites: the results from only a couple hours of work. In the matter of an hour the first house should be finished! It only needs half a wall and the roof. It feels great to look at the house and know that we were able to build something from nothing. The second house is another story. It is slowly coming along but it is extremely hard to know that we may be leaving it unfinished. It is also hard knowing we have to leave on Wednesday. Many of us have learned valuable lessons, formed friendships, worked hard, and are beginning to realize how painful it is going to be to say goodbye.

  1. I'm anxious to see the picture of a finished house!! Don't be discouraged regarding the second house--you all have done so much! Don't forget the 43 bags filled with 50 pounds of very much needed items. You will go through many emotions as you prepare to leave. Take your time to process it all. Take your time to be sad but take the time to rejoice in all you have accomplished! Love you all! Your Honduras Mama!! Jo Ann

  3. Dear Fr Cos and all chaperones,
    I know I speak for all the parents and kids when I send a HUGE thank you for accompanying the lids!! We appreciate the time you took off from work, the time away from your families. Not to mention the cost of going alOng!
    Thanks for being parents to all the kids; making sure they wore sunscreen, drank enough fluids, provided hugs and positive words, guidance and love. We are so thankful you listened to the call to go along!
    Travel safe!

  8. Hello mission team, there is an old saying: If you think you're too small to make a difference, you've never been in a tent with a mosquito." Rememeber as you start your plans for the departure that you have made a difference in their lives as well as your own.
    I remember when I was on a medical team from Mercy Medical in Sioux City when we went to help with Hurricane Katrina, I experienced some of the same feelings you are describing. In time you feel better but never forget. You are leaving footprints for others to follow. "For you were once darkeness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light." Ephesians 5:8 Hence the song I annoy Kyle with, this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine... go ahead Kyle, I know you want to sing it. See you soon Love and prayers Jeanie H Blog Home Kyle!
