In our years in Honduras, this is how we've moved a crowd:
While riding in the back of at truck is a great way to view the mountain scenery here, it's also a great way to get covered in dust or soaked to the bone, depending on the weather. It's also not the safest mode of transportation, especially for young kids. And we move kids around here:
We currently have 25 kids and teens that live on our property. On Friday nights for our Youth Group we'll have 60 young people try to squeeze into the trucks like you can see above, and that's just from one village!
It's time to buy our bus! Yesterday Jason and our two house-dads, Wil and Oscar, traveled to view a bus. They feel that it's perfect for our needs. The size is right , the price is right, and it's in great condition. We're excited! This has been a long time coming.
We feel overwhelmingly blessed. Thanks to some generous donors, we raised over $3000 for the bus in one day! Now we can purchase the bus outright and do the little tweaks it needs to work just right for us.
We want to say thanks to those who passed along the message about our goal and an even bigger thanks for those who gave. Thanks for believing in our work!
