A Word From Steve Jones
May 18th, 2020
I really don't know how to start. It was a great day but.... we had to say bye!
We all started our last day early. We had breakfast, prayed and we're ready and waiting for our drive. We decided to go shopping and buy the coffee in the morning so we could be at the home for the whole afternoon when the kids were all back from school.
We had our shopping and coffee picked up by 11:30 so we ate our lunch on the way to the home. We got the retaining wall back-filled, the fence up, the generator slab formed up with the rebar in it. We cleaned up the yard and back-filled the sidewalk. Got the roof welded together on the propane storage and ready for the steel roofing. The drywall is all crack filled in the kitchen and new plugs and light switches installed.
We didn't get the concrete poured in the generator slab because we ran out of gravel and they didn't deliver it until 4:00. We still needed to say good bye so Eve's, Michael ?and Gabriel and the boys are going to pour it tomorrow. The steel still needs to go on the roof of the propane shed, the door installed and the tank moved in. The boys welding up the soccer nets were helping us with this project and they are going to come finish it the first of the week.
Our team worked well together and we organized and accomplished way more than we expected!
Saying bye to everyone was emotional and the kids didn't want to see us go. There were lots of tears! Chris lead us all in prayer! When we got in the van, 6 of them climbed in with us. Our van had to wait for an hour for us to finally get away.
We had a grand finale! We had 17 of our Honduras friends over for supper and a night of singing praises to God in a melody of Spanish and English praise! We all hung out together and spoke encouraging words to one another, prayed together and sang. Lots of new friends made, new connections, we were truly blessed.
We are up tomorrow at 5:30 and start our journey home! Thanks for praying!
Your team in Honduras
