Me: “Guess where I’m going for Spring Break?!?!” Dad: “Please say anywhere but Honduras…” Me: “Uhhhh…” *mischevious grin*
I was just perusing through my posts and noticed that something very important was missing. I am doing something major in one week and I failed completely to write about it. I guess the excitement of nunhood has been consuming my thoughts lately 🙂
Anyway, every year my school offers the opportunity to participate in spring break service trips to various places around the country. For the first time, this year they planned an international trip. Not wanting to pass up the opportunity, of course I applied.
That’s right folks, in one week I will be traveling to central america once again, to Guatemala’s neighbor, Honduras. We are working with a program called Students Helping Honduras and staying in El Progreso. This organization recruits groups of college students to come for one week and assist in building schools and with various other projects. Their main purpose to improve opportunities for children in Honduras. They work on building schools, providing school supplies and also run a children’s home.
Since I’ve been so multimedia lately, here’s a video about a village they’re basically building from the ground up:
This will definitely be a new experience for all of us, as we’ll be working with a new organization and with other college students from around the country. It should also be an interesting experience for me personally, since I have recently surrendered by desires to be a foreign missionary. It will be more important than ever to listen to the still small voice of God during this trip.
