A Word From Steve Jones
September 17th, 2018
We had a tourist day - took the bus to Comayauga, about 45 minutes from Siguatepeque. It is on the main road between San Pedro and Tegucipalpo. It went over a large mountain range - very beautiful. Ally took a girl from the home - Elaina who is 14 and bi-lingual.
Comayauga is the geographic center of Central America, first settled in 1535. Lots of history and a quaint Spanish-type city. We shopped, took a tour of a clock tower that houses a working Arabian clock made in the 12th century, given to Barcelona and ending up at Comayauga in the 17th century. It was hot there and the strong sun wears on us. The uv today was 11, or extreme. We ate lunch in a great restaurant that was like an art museum.
On the bus ride back we met a Honduran pastor from La Paz that John taught in a ‘Leaders For’ course 4 years ago. He has about 50 people in his church but they are very poor. He asked John if we looking for a sister church to help here! So many needs!
We toured around Siguatepeque when we got back. Ally says she’ll be glad to get back to the Home - tired of being stared at by creepy guys. I called Pastor Hector and he said she can come to work at the clinic this Friday at 7am, so she will come in Thursday to say goodbye to us and then stay overnight with John and Lise. Lise will make sure she never travels alone.
Tomorrow we go to the home to say farewell.
Bye for now
