It was a very busy day but it was a good day!
We got up , had breakfast, morning devotions then we were off to church where the children from the home go. We saw our friends there and made some new ones.
After church, we went for ice cream and to a market in town with Melodie and our driver Betuel.
We headed back to the camp for lunch then we picked up our translator Nancy, and our friend Luis and went to Omar’s coffee plantation. It was really cool! He showed us the roaster and the grinder. It smelled so good!!
The land where the coffee plants are was so cool to see. There were row and rows and rows coffee plants everywhere, big and small. We also stopped to see some banana trees which was interesting. We saw a bunch of bananas that was ripe and Jay really wanted to climb to get them. Omar said no because they had workers for that and he would get very dirty.
On the way down the hill from the coffee plantation Nick, Jay, Keegan, Madison, Vicki and Luis sat in the back of Omar’s truck. They say you don’t have a real Honduras experience until you ride in the back of a pick up truck.
Nancy invited us to go to her church with her tonight. It was the 3rd church that we’ve been to and we’ve had amazing experience at all of them! They are all so welcoming and loving. We may not understand the message because it’s in Spanish but we could definitely feel the love and God’s presence there.
After church we went to a local restaurant with Nancy, Betuel and Nancy’s pastor and his family to try baleadas, which is a tortilla with cheese and refried beans plus what we wanted to add for other toppings. They were delicious!!!
Night time devotions, worship and some time for prayer and we were ready for bed!
We’ve tried many times as a team to try to speak Spanish, sometimes it works but other times no one understand us... we have fun trying!!
Much love to everyone at FBC from the Honduras team and see you when we get home!!!
