Everyone Is Flying Home On Saturday

Friday is the last full day in Honduras for the short term mission team from Village Seven Presbyterian Church of Colorado Springs, CO. On Saturday the team from Village Seven flies home. Saturday is also the day our 15-year-old daughter concludes her month-long cross-cultural internship in New York City and flies home to Honduras.

Prepairing the roof for weldingOn Wednesday, with the help of the 20-person team from Village Seven, we did construction work on our ministry center in Armenia Bonito and continued work on a new home for the Sandoval family. In the afternoon we took 30 Honduran kids to the river for an afternoon of fun.

On Thursday the team again did construction work in the morning. They hosted their third medical clinic and second Kids Club of the week. Village Seven has done a wonderful week of work and ministry.
