At the IST staff breakfast, each table was challenged to lip-synch to a song. Kjell’s table won and the prize was a trip to Tela (to stay at his boss’ place near the beach). At first it started as just staff and then turned in to an invitation to families as well. We had to pitch in toward the ride on the school bus, but the transportation, lodging, and all meals were taken care of for the weekend. There was a pool and the beach was a short walk down a path. We also went exploring on some rocks on the beach.

Holidays are always interesting for missionaries. But summer is a time that lots of missionaries leave for their home assignment or are busy with back to back teams. If you live close enough to others and there is a gathering, then you don’t feel as alone. For July 4th this year, a couple of staff still at school had a little BBQ in the afternoon and then the ladies bible study I attend had a BBQ in the afternoon with families. When it got dark, we had some fireworks and sparklers too.
I decided I should practice what I preach (especially on the year we don’t take a trip to the States as a family). We decided to go on a vacation in country. I was determined to go on vacation with a family of 4 for under a certain dollar amount to show that it is possible. I was able to achieve that for less than I set out for. I don’t want my kids to resent us, ministry, Honduras, or God. I also want them to see and enjoy the beauty right here in Honduras. We were able to stay 4 nights near the Lake (Lago de Yojoa) and visited 7 places: tree fort and playground, restaurant on the lake, the zoo (also had a pool), caves, nature walk, kayaking from the river to the lake, and a waterfall (which included a trip behind the falls and canopy). With internet only in the main area of the lodging, we also got to spend nights playing games.
