As part of our ongoing search for rest and “slowing” in our family and our respective lives this year, we are spending the summer in Siguatepeque, Honduras (about 15 minutes from the location of Providence’s orphan care community, La Providencia). While our first week has been a whirlwind of settling in, parties, shopping, Spanish classes, frisbee golf, futbol (i.e., soccer), we’ve also snuck in some reading and relaxing, and we’re hoping that the “slowing” and rest will happen soon.
My wife, Becca, is blogging about our time here this summer at darkesidehonduras.wordpress.com, so I won’t go into much detail here. This is a big win for you all because she is a much better and funnier writer than me. And her first post, “Estamos Aqui (We’re Here),” which published yesterday, did not disappoint. So if you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to follow the blog (you can subscribe to it) so that you can join us on our adventure here this summer.
Here are some pictures from our travels and first few days in Honduras (don’t know if they’ll encourage or discourage you with big families to make a similar trip : )):
