Honduras - Day 2

6/2/24

Honduras: June 1-8, 2024

We are so excited to be in Honduras!!!

Our last adventure before dinner was to tour the church that is on the second floor of the mission house where we are staying.  (Pastor is the woman not he far right, front row of this church.)  What a beautiful building and gracious pastor and her husband.  We actually did an impromptu singing of Amazing Grace as we

 

What an awesome day!  Ready for another!
