best last day… SO sad to leave
Hola friends and family!
We’ve made it safely back to Cofradia — praise the Lord! Our day was precious and so fun… the perfect weather, sweet sweet time with our campers, and solid debrief time with our own team as well as the Hondurans. It was SO hard to see our campers drive away on the bus… but we had to remind ourselves, mid-tears, that we are simply the ones who get to plant and water seeds… and we FULLY TRUST our God to grow those kids and continue to draw them to Himself.
The fun surprise of the day was waiting for us when we got back to Cofradia. We pulled up, and as we got off the bus we were greeted by people of the church, some dressed in traditional latin dress, cheering for us Pine Cove style. We walked into the church and plated tables were waiting for us… with candle centerpieces and everything! They did a little (HILARIOUS) drama for us, we ate, learned how to dance, and got to hug the necks of the people we’ve fallen in love with while we’ve been here. It was goodbye for many of them, a few we’ll see tomorrow morning before we leave for the airport. We are SO SO blessed by the relationships and friendships that God has given us here… we are literally grieving as we leave them. However, we are excited to see yall when we’re back… there is LOTS of processing to do between now and then, so we can give you full yet concise (is that possible? haha) details on all the things we’ve seen God do here. We are SO excited to testify to His work!
We leave tomorrow (Thursday) at 9am to go to the airport, depart time is 2:10… and then be back home by tomorrow night — another update then! I really am so sorry that these are getting shorter and shorter… but know that Friday there is going to be some major blogging going on… and hopefully a TON of pictures (we have over 1500 to choose from!… woops! haha!)
We love you and are VERY thankful for the way you’ve faithfully prayed for us and supported us as we’ve been here. Please keep praying as we travel, debrief, process, and walk where God takes us! We love you!
because of the grace given us by JESUS,
the woods honduras team
