On the way to Honduras

Pastor Jonathan, Deanna, Shelly, Mark, Glen, Troy, Beth

slide3

Honduras is always lush and green. One website I saw said that the country is in perpetual spring. Temperature in the mountains ranged from 25-30 C

slide4

Pastor Mario met us at the airport in San Pedro Sula, the largest city in Honduras, about 2 hours drive from Siguatepeque.

slide5

On the drive from the airport we saw many different crops and plantations, including sugar cane, pineapple, and bananas.

slide6

This bridge collapsed in last year’s 7.1 magnitude earthquake. Notice the section laying in the river.

slide7

After a two hour drive into the mountains, we arrived at our village just outside Siguatepeque called Villa Alicia.

slide8

Iglesia Bautista Unidad. The church was started by American missionaries and built by mission teams. The church building is above, and the education building to the right.

slide9

With Alfredo back at the house with my Honduran family... Alfredo goes to an English school and so we could communicate with the help of a dictionary and lots of hand motions.

slide11

Beans are a staple of Honduran food. We ate them whole, crushed, mashed, and boiled into a paste. Sometimes they were served on soft tortillas with cheese sprinkled on top.

slide15

Many homes had fruit and other trees in their yards, like aloe, lime, papya, mango, and bananas.

slide16

These homes were fairly typcial in Honduras. The one above is made from adobe bricks, the one on the left from cement blocks faced with concrete. These building materials are modest but durable.

slide17

A coffee farmer from the church explains coffee to Pastor Jonathan. Even a small plot of land can yield remarkable results, but the plants require special attention when they are young.

slide18

We arrived at this local swimming hole called “Three Mayors” after an hour-long walk. After watching the young people for a while, we joined them in jumping off the cliff.

slide19

The red lines mark the work we will do to expand this children’s playing area – extending the retaining wall and adding rock and fill on the lower side.

slide20

The red line marks the work on the lower side of the play area – a rock retaining wall with fill

slide26

We arrived at the beginning of the rainy season. Most afternoons it rained – hard. So we sanded pews in the church in the afternoon.

slide35

Along the way, we had many chances to get to know our Honduran hosts, aided by limited Spanish, hand signs, and a dictionary.

slide39

Pastor Jonathan reminded us that missions works involves dealing with contradictions. Many Hondurans are poor and earn only $7-10 per day… And yet we saw this new French restaurant…

slide40

…Mansions exist beside shacks

…Land in this “residential” – a gated community - is extremely expensive even by North American standards.

slide41

We spent a day with the church at this beach in Puerto Cortez. The water was very nice and the children spent most of the day swimming. Several of the team got sunburned. I picked up an infection from a scrape on my ankle.
