Flying home yesterday from Honduras, I had many emotions and thoughts.
Why does this hurt so much?
We have built such strong relationships with those in the country and we were looking forward to spending quality time together.
It hurts to leave people behind that you know are facing difficult days and yet we are on a plane heading home to safety and calm
Its hard to go back to life as normal and have your heart in two places.
What’s next? It was another question that rattled around in my strained brain.
Share with others the great country that Honduras is
Keep in touch with as many Honduran nationals that I have contact information with, to encourage them during their time of crisis
Continue to raise needed funds to feed and educate children and teens, I have a fresh vision for this.
Study more Spanish to be ready to communicate more effectively with those we will be investing in when I return
Dream big dreams for this nation and our friends
Another question/thought was: why do I live in such a safe and rich country, when so many others around the world suffer?
I don’t have an answer to that one, but I do know it means I have a responsibility to others who do suffer.
So I have a deeper resolve than ever to be prepared to go back to Honduras whenever things improve.
Until then, I pray and believe for better days for my friends!
May God bless you and protect you and give you peace!
