Day 2 Report

Posted on

Well it’s only the second day of our trip really and it’s already impossible to find words to do it justice. I try, honestly I do, and I pray to find words that will in some way help you to in some small way experience a part of all we’re experiencing. It’s just so difficult to wrap up in words all that happens in a heart while you are here.

Today we began our day at Didasko. Joy, joy, joy, joy, joy, joy!! That about sums that up! Mark saw Eduardo and Junior as soon as he got off the bus and they both remembered his name. Junior took him to his bunk where he got out his backpack and pulled out the polariod of he and Mark that was taken in March that he had kept and treasured. I spent the day with a little girl named Norma that Rick’s heart adopted when he was here in the spring and when we got off the bus and I asked where Norma was and she came over she asked me where Ricardo was and if he was infirmo (sick). I said no and had Jorge come over and tell her he wished he could be there and that he loved her. We spent the rest of the day playing. It was good stuff. Such a reminder that as much as we take away from a two hour session of them nestling up so close to our hearts and memories being etched on our hearts forever, it is equally so for them. They remember your name and your face and the way that you loved them. It makes a difference.

It was another great day in Honduras. We are so incredibly blessed to be here. We’ll attach some pictures to show you from the playground that they opened for the children at Didasko today. They loved it! Jody you better start working on the blueprints for Casa de Esperanza, they outdid us, the race is on!!! :):)

Continue to be Jesus right where you are and we’ll do our best to do the same.
