Hello to parents and families of the Gehlen Mission Honduras team.
I have again spoken with my brother Dick and he told me that the team had arrived in Omaha, Ne. about an hour late. I had spoken with him about 10 minutes before the flight was to arrive in Omaha. I am very thankful that they were able to meet their connecting flight. I know it was a long day for all.
Both Dick and I told the team that the trip would be high in the mountain, hot, dusty and hard. When you listen to the stories they will tell, it was all of that. We told then "it wouldn't be easy, but it would be worth it", and that is was and so it is.
To all parents, that you for trusting us to let your kids and family members travel to a developing country, Honduras, keep them safe, and then have them return to you with what I hope will be life changing perspectives.
Their are many people that make this team trip a successful. My brother Dick spoke about them in his message to the team before they left Honduras. From me, I want to thank all of you parents and families for letting me be a small part of this team, and for the opportunity to spend but a brief moment of time with them. God bless. Peace to all. I will return to the USA soon.
