Honduras Mission Trip 2011

Arriving at the Tegucigalpa airport 7/9/11
This was the breeze way of our motel, it had beautiful foliage, including my favorite Bird's of Paradise just outside our door.

This is the front of our hotel that was staffed with an armed guard at all times.  Notice the street, most of them are like this, with all modes of transportation, even four wheelers are used to get around the area.

This is the health clinic at Predisan, we also attended church here.

Here is just one of many pictures of some of the guys setting poles on the ropes course that we built.

The outdoor hallway of Cerepa, the treatment center where we built the ropes course.

Tegucigalpa, Honduras, city of 3 million

And here is our mission team!

Davis and I had the opportunity to join a CR mission effort in Honduras.  We had a wonderful time! Everything fell in place and the team was awesome. It was said on many occasions that "God wanted this trip to happen!"  We are so blessed to have been able to be a part of it.
While in Honduras we spent most of the week in Catacamas, a 4 hour drive from Tegucigalpa.  We helped construct a low element ropes course in the mornings at the treatment center Cerepa.  In the afternoons and evenings we trained several Hondurans on how to do CR in their community.  The worship time was awesome and the response was great!!! We averaged about 30-40 in attendance.  
Although, it was a long time away from David and the girls, I am thankful I was able to share this experience with Davis. 
Please pray that their new CR program will be a success!

Life changes...

So, I know I have been terrible at blogging the past year. I want to make an effort to keep it up, so here I go... again.

This last year has gone by so fast! Camille is almost one, which is soooo hard to believe.  I worked this last year from home doing medical transcription, which was a huge blessing and I loved doing it.  Since I was on the computer much of the day, I really didn't have it in me to keep my blog up.  Not to mention I want to spend time with my family.  Well, unfortunately I need to bring in more money to help support my family, therefore I am returning to teaching in August.  I am grateful that I was able to be home the first year of Camille's life.  I thank God for that. I also thank him for providing me with a job that has childcare at the school. How great is that?! She will be in a small childcare class on MY hall! A blessing that I never expected in my wildest dreams.  He is good at that.  I forgot to mention I will be working as a co-teacher (Special Education) at Del City High school. I am really excited! 

In addition to keeping up with a one year old, I am amused daily by my sensitive and dramatic almost six year old, and almost teenage son, standing at 5'10, might I had.  Life is never dull at the Brown house.  In my next post I will give a recap of our Honduras mission trip!
