I am revisiting Honduras but I am not there in person. I am sitting in front of my computer¬†reminiscing¬†about my previous trips. My first trip to Honduras was in 2010 with Vineyard Westside.

Before we headed out to the mountains we did some work around the farm or the mission base. This is where teams arrive and are stationed before they leave for the mountains. At this point in the trip we still have beds, toilets and showers. No flushing of the TP permitted and it is recommended that everyone takes three minute showers to conserve the hot water. There is a possibility of scorpions climbing under the sheets… so nightly inspections are required.

A long time has passed since the Honduras trip. It has taken me awhile to process and get to the point where I want to write about the experience on my blog. A large part of the men’s trip is to challenge ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. We get plenty of opportunity to do all […]

Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Honduras is more like spring break in Panama City. Everyone from different parts of Honduras visits La Ceiba for this special week. I have yet to figure out what exactly is holy about this week, but it was cool to experience spring break Honduran style. Our host family invited us […]

In the previous post I mentioned how an old hobby of mine was recently brought back to life. When I was ten years old, I learned my first magic trick. Magic has always been a hobby of mine, but I’ve gone through phases where I would not touch it for a long time, and then […]

Our host family in Honduras connected us with a school that needed money for construction materials to build an add-on to an existing class room. After our first visit, we realized just how much they needed this room. There were three small classrooms and multiple grades met in each one. The teacher also taught multiple […]

It is great being home back in the states but that is not what this blog post is about. It is amazing how quickly our new home felt like home. I could not wait to get back after a long day and relax in my bed (even though it was 100 degrees). So here is a tour of our home in Honduras along with some video. Enjoy!
