Honduras Here I Come

As many of you know, I have had a deep burning desire to go to Honduras for many years. Well, this time next week I'll be in Honduras, I'm a little nervous, and very excited. The plan is to land in San Pedro Sula next Saturday, spend a few days in an orphanage outside of the city, then take a bus to Tegucigalpa where I'll spend a few days in another orphanage. I'll take a bus back to San Pedro Sula the following Saturday and head back to Costa Rica that afternoon. It will be a busy week, but I'm sure it will be incredible. Please be praying that I hear the Lord's voice more clearly than I ever have before while in Honduras.

As my time here in Costa Rica draws to a close my heart is already hurting as I think about leaving so many things that I've grown to love so dearly. The year that I've spent in Costa Rica has flown by so fast, yet I've developed such incredible relationships. The ministry that I've been involved in in La Carpio has truly been a gift from the Lord, tears come to my eyes just thinking about telling those kids goodbye. The relationships I've developed with my tica family have been such a blessing, we've already shed tears thinking about the day I leave, and I'm sure many more tears will come. Through the changes in the last several years, one thing I've learned is God's grace is sufficient, and I know it will continue to be sufficient through this next season, but my heart is nervous, as I walk away from so many things I've grown accustomed to and grown to love. Please pray for extra grace through this next season.

Hey my friend! I can't believe we will be in Honduras at the same time - just wish we could meet up. But - maybe if this is where God is leading you - we WILL have that opportunity in the future. I pray that God blesses your trip, you are safe, and enjoy your time!

I'll be praying for you that you find your home and hear clearly and distinctly from the Lord about where he wants your feet to be planted!
