It was a great first day!

Highlight of the day?  Walking into a local Honduran family's home and making 9 balloon animals for all of their 9 children.  Then they shared a homemade buttered corn tortilla with us.  It was a sweet moment that brings tears to your eyes. Today was primarily about travelling, getting acquainted, and learning safety in Honduras.

Tomorrow morning at 6:15am, five of us are going running, then breakfast at 7:30am, then at 8:30am we'll be off to our first build site.  We'll send you photos of the family and our time with them tomorrow night.  Please continue in prayer!

Here are a few of our fun photos from the day!
