Unsure what to expect in Honduras, but knowing it would be about more than just me going to serve, I was delighted to discover a sense of abundance on this trip.
In a land where so many are so poor, the riches amazed me. So many bananas at the roadside stands, so many incredible children at the childrens’ home we visited, so much ingenuity, so much unexpected friendship and fellowship (both in our hosts Esther and Dave, as well as via email from folks back home)…
On the plane from San Pedro Sula to Miami, I tried to buy some snacks for the boys (our hard boiled eggs were gone a long time ago, and we ate the carrots and cucs well before heading through customs this time, lol!) Turns out they don’t take cash on planes! And me without any cards on the trip… Some lady overheard our plight, and bought the boys some cheese and crackers and raisons!!! And then, one of the flight attendants took pity on us and snuck back with a can of chips.
Abundance. It is all around us, even in the most unexpected situations and contexts.
