12 Pictures From Honduras You’ve Got To See

Here’s a little report on our Honduras trip. Sorry I’m a little slow sharing, but we got in at 2:00 Sunday morning, and I’ve been sick ever since. I was trying to think about what all I wanted to tell you, and finally decided that I’d just show you. We did medical clinics, clothing give-aways, feedings, built wooden houses and block houses, played with kids at the Hospital Escuela, and on and on. It’s tough coming up with just 12, but here’s 12 pictures and the stories behind them.

If you go to Honduras, you’ll see houses like this. Yes, people actually live there. Can you imagine trying to live in a house like this … or raising a family there?  The GOOD news is that this house was replaced with a new one for the person living there.

Here’s what a wooden house looks like. It takes about 4 hours to complete. This house was a bit tougher to build because it wasn’t on level ground. But due to a great work crew, we still had it knocked out in no time. This house went to a 51 year old twice-widowed lady who was living in a home that was falling down around her.

This little girl is named Stephanie. We took this picture in the little village where she lives.  I met her the first time I ever went to the dump (August 2009). I even wrote about her here. She’s the little girl whose picture is on the back of the “Dump Shirt” that Bread for a Hungry World sells. Sadly Stephanie still has to go to the dump to help support her family. Stephanie was at the dump  on Monday while we were feeding there.

When you go to Honduras you can always expect to make new friends. Cooper made lots of new friends. The shorter necklace that the little girl in the picture was wearing was Cooper’s. She asked him for it, and he didn’t hesitate to give it to her. I was proud of him.  If Cooper will let me, I’m going to share with you something he wrote in his journal. It was amazing seeing Honduras through the eyes of a 9 year old.

If you read my blog this time last year, you first read about Baby Jesus here (Saving Baby Jesus). He came through one of our medical clinics as a newborn. His mother was unable to make milk and the doctors said that little Jesus was only a few days from dying. Today he is a healthy little boy.

For those that sent bracelets … and there were 1000’s … here is where they went. The little children love them. I wanted to include this picture and what you can’t see is the “bracelet line” was a mile long with kids. Thank you for sending.

The girl in the middle is Sonia.  We met her at the dump. She was working there digging through the trash. She hit it off immediately with our Angelica (left) and Kristie (right). Our girls cleaned Sonia’s hands and then painted her fingernails for her. When finished she asked for the polish and with a big grin asked Marc Tindall and I if she could paint one of our fingernails. Of course we let her.

 If you go to Honduras with us, you’ll get to eat some really cool things. Here’s a plate of talapia I ate the first day.

 I’m proud of a lot of things that we do in Honduras, but I’m especially proud of our medical clinics. It’s the one thing that our group does that most other groups don’t. We do two days of medical clinics and provide medical attention for the poor which is an essential thing. Many of the people in this long line can’t even afford to fill a prescription, and we were able to simply give them the meds they needed. I sure appreciated our doctors and pharmacists that came and worked so hard.

I met and spent time with lots of kids. On Wednesday afternoon I met Emma (pink), Stephanie (next to Emma) and Daniella (with her little fists clinched). My MOST favorite was Daniella. We really hit it off. We played all that afternoon together. She would hold my hand, sit in my lap and she even took me to see her little house. I miss her.

Here we are playing a new game we made up called “Gato, Gato, Perro” (cat, cat, dog). It’s played exactly like “Duck, Duck, Goose,” but I didn’t know how to say “duck” or “goose” in Spanish. :)

“HANDS & FEET”

The theme this year for our trip was “Hands and Feet” of Jesus. That was our goal to be His hands and His feet. My friend Bianca took the following pictures on our trip and then made this picture to fit the theme. I love it!

Thanks for being interested in our trip…

    I’ve been sick since Sunday also. I bet it’s the same thing you have. But it was a great week. And a bonus was getting to hang out with you all.

  4. Linda Willis says:

    Did you eat that Tilapia at a lake between San Pedro Sula and Tegu?
    We ate there on two of our trips that we flew into San Pedro. Quite a ride, wasn’t it? I loved seeing the rest of the country. Hope to see you in December!

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Linda, that’s exactly the place where we at the Tilapia. It was delicious. One of the highlights of the trip. The country was beautiful … but I hope I don’t have to make that trip again. :)

  5. Jess says:

    Right on, looks like you guys had a very succesful mission. God bless all involved in the project, and keep up the good work.

  6. Patrick says:

    Amazing photo’s and clearly shows “Amazing Grace!” Looking forward to reading more about the experiences you all shared. Hope you are feeling much better Trey.

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Patrick … I thought about you often on this trip. Wishing you could have been there. I’m praying for next year.

      • Patrick says:

        I thought (and prayed) about you as well. It was a bitter-sweet time for me, wanting to be there but overwhelmed with joy for you and your team, knowing the love and sincerity of Chirst was reaching out to the Hondurans. I will be praying for next year too!

    Great ministry! When I was preaching, I more or less “endured” the week to week church stuff knowing there would eventually be trips such as this where you knew without a doubt you were touching someone’s life in a rich and meaningful way. I have a very close friend down in Mexico this week building a house. He says it’s a 2-hour drive to the building site, then a 100-yd. walk up to a plateau where you walk about 75 yards on level ground before a grueling 100-yd. climb up a hill to the building site. They had to schlep lumber, plywood, tools, nails, and 94-pound bags of concrete each day. Sort of glad I was not on that trip.

    Love the pictures of those precious and beautiful children!!!

  8. Nicole says:

    Such a great trip. We are so excited to serve with you in December.

  9. Mark says:

    Glad you continue to come and serve in Honduras…. really sorry we missed you! Maybe next time…. just give us a call when you are here.

    One of the only teams doing medical clinics? Uh…. no! Thankfully, they are done by most teams that come as it is soooooo needed!
