Missio en Movimiento, day 5

   Today was our final day at Honduyate. After breakfast we loaded up the bus and headed up to the MOM mission.  When we arrived at the mission the children greeted us by lining both sides off the driveway and singing to welcome us.

      Ruth cleaned the teeth of the workers and some of the others were teaching the kids how to brush their teeth. While that was going on we were also repacking the team trunks so as to better redistribute the weight.  It was a very relaxing day. We were glad not to have another full or even partial day of all out clinics. We spent time with the kids, shared a pizza lunch with them, and got to play with them for awhile.

     There were two different swing sets and different ones of our team took turns pushing the children. Of course there was soccer to be played and just good ole attempts at verbal communication. But hugs reigned supreme as the international language of love and there were plenty to go around.

     No, Bill was not the only one to have this problem. But, the kids were quick to offer a helping hand and free the chair.  Also, while we were there the adventurous among us decided to try a lemon that was growing from a tree on the property. Yes, I said lemon.

     After our morning and lunch with the kids we loaded up the bus again to ride to the National Cloud Forest, PANACAM.  There we hiked in to a waterfall and got to take a dip. It was a cold, refreshing plunge. A very nice way to end the week. 

     Tonight we are in San Pedro Sula. We are about to go to dinner. We will be up and at'em in the morning to head to the airport. We expect a long process to get through security and all.  We look forward to our arrival in Augusta tomorrow night!
