Honduras

Honduras has been an incredible trip thus far! The days have been full of hard work, and I have returned to the ranch each afternoon grateful and humbled. Our one day of building latrines and laying foundations made me thankful for the church group that was staying at the ranch with us. I know I couldn't have done that work all week! The clinics have been so great! The people have shown us so much gratitude. Every single patient has had the biggest smile on their face! The children are especially precious. Yesterday, we were at a clinic in El Ocote. At the end of the day I was taking pictures of the children wearing goofy glasses. They loved to be shown their picture :). Before long, there were about 5 kids around me wanting to be in a picture. One girl (I didn't get her name) hugged me for about 15 minutes because she didn't want us to leave... I have seen so much genuine happiness this week. It just makes my heart happy! I don't think I will ever get used to the mountain views here. They are truly beautiful! As well as the acacia trees (beautiful red flowers that only bloom for a month and we just so happen to be here while they're in bloom)!! We've hiked up a couple of hills (mountains) with crosses at the top which have made beautiful pictures. I'm so grateful that I am here in Honduras and that God has blessed the first week. I'm excited for what next week has in store! Mary
