We have been through so much as a team and as a family, but God has come on top once again. The people were impacted by us being there and building a new school and providing a new beginning for their town, La Mosquitia. The people have changed our hearts and we will never forget what they have taught us and they shall be forever in our hearts. We might have gone there to build a achool and preach the gospel and impact their lives, but we in turn have been impacted and blessed. There were many tears shed from saying goodbye to the La Mosquitia people and some team members and leaders have been so impacted by these people they feel God leading them back. As a team or family, the best time was evening devotions. We sang songs and each night one teen member would tell what God has been doing in their lives, but the best time would have to be when we worked side-by-side with the La Mosquitia people. We were all focused on one goal, even when we played mud soccer. We left the La Mosquitia village on Wed at 4:00 A.M. and we were in the boats 12 hours that day and 12 hours the next day. We were all amazed by the beauty of Honduras. The boat ride went really smoothly and after that we were driving to do a presentation in a high school in Tegucigalpa and that went really well. Leah Walker gave her testimony and a young girl came up and talked to her about her life because she was so impacted by Leah’s testimony. We did three presentations there at the school. After the presentations, we hung out with the kids while waiting for lunch. We left the school at 5:00 P.M. and not 30 mins into driving, one of the vans broke down and the team was split into two groups. We are together now and we went shopping yesterday and we will be going to the beach for some awesome team time today. We love all of you and will see you in a few days to tell you all that God has done for us and as a whole. God Bless!
