After a beautiful Send-Off at Gehlen Catholic School this afternoon, the missioners headed out of the school door and through the tunnel of students, friends, and families. We feel very blessed to be starting our mission to construct 3 homes, build more than 15 bunk beds, teach English lessons, and deliver gift bags of all the donated items to the poor of Nueva Capital.
In Omaha we checked into our hotel rooms and then ate at a buffet. We had our first nightly meeting, which will turn into our juntas in Honduras. Tonight's meeting gave me a chance to go through the details of our day, which will begin with a 2:20 a.m. wake up call. Best Western kindly provides a cold breakfast for us at 3 a.m. so we can board the bus at 3:30. Seivert let United know that a large group carrying 72 50-lb. duffle bags will check in at 3:45 when they open.
As I type this first blog of the mission trip, I hope all missioners are able to sleep, preparing themselves to work hard on their mission trip. Please stay in touch with us as "WE WALK BY FAITH."
