HONDURAS BOUND

We leave for Honduras in the morning. I’m going with two of my sons (Parker & Connor) and two men from church.

I fell in love with the work there about a year ago when I read a young AIM team’s newsletter about their work at a city dump just outside of the capital city. I couldn’t for the life of me believe that there were people living and eating food they found in a dump. This past May 5th, you helped raise $12,000 on this blog to help feed the people at the dump (I still love going back and reading through the comments on that day. I’m excited that this week I’ll help spend some of that money to actually be a part of feeding there. As excited as I am about getting to be a part of this work, I’m also very apprehensive. I know my heart will be broken from what I see.
Besides going to the dump, we will be building a house (16×16 one room home), for a family that doesn’t have one. And, from what I understand, we’ll be working (or visiting) at a children’s hospital. We’re packing dozens of small stuffed animals in our suitcases for the hospital. I’m sure there are other things we’ll be doing too.
My goals for this trip are pretty simple…
  • Get a better idea about (see for myself) the work that’s going on at the dump. I want to take more pictures so I can do a better job educating others about the work. And, come next May, we can raise another $12,000 for this work :)
  • I want God to affect me on this trip. I want to be able to let my barriers down and just let God mold me and soften me in areas I need to grow.
  • I want to encourage Marc & Terri Tindall, the missionaries there, who are doing a great work.
  • I hope this little survey trip will bring about a big work trip next summer with lots of volunteers to go and work.
I hope to update my blog while I’m there to let you know what we’re doing, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able too. I do plan on using twitter and facebook to do status updates with the little cellular phone I’ll be using.
Also, it just so happens that I’ll be spending my 21st anniversary tomorrow on an airplane heading to Honduras, instead of being with my beautiful wife. I’m SO blessed to have Lea. Baby, I promise I will make it up to you :)

    I'm blown away by your focus on Jesus; not just from reading this post but from the other things I read here and hear about you. I'm renewed through your example.

  2. Scott says:

    Trey, I am asking God to bless your trip and I know you will be effective for him.

    Amy (my wife) and I will celebrate our 20th tommorrow and will think about you two having to be apart.

    After two trips to Honduras, I've come to love the people and the land. I love to look at the mountains and I wonder if the Honduran people know how beautiful their land is.

    I'm sure you will be affected by your work there and your boys will never be the same.

    I'm a little bit jealous but it just inspires me to save my money so I can go again next year.

    If you get a chance to visit Catacamas, go to Por Los Ninos and tell my friends that I miss them!

    Haven't been to Honduras, but have seen enough poverty in San Felipe and Ensenada, Mexico to do me a lifetime. Building houses and bringing food, clothing, and toys for the children was a highlight of my years of ministry in Long Beach.

    Happy Anniversary! and you will be in my prayers.

    You and your family are an inspiration.

    God be with you.

  6. NB says:

    You will all be in my prayers during the trip.

    Happy Anniversary Trey and Lea!

    Will Lea guest post in the next few days?

    I visit your blog often and just happened to drop in today… the day you flew out. You WILL be blessed beyond measure on your trip! We went in June and I am counting the days until we get to return to beautiful Honduras. The people are so open to Jesus our Lord. We worked in Choluteca. The country is full of poverty and people who are open and full of needs and ways for us to show Jesus and His love. I will be praying for you and your boys this week. My husband and I were able to take our nine year old little girl with us and it was a great experience for her, too. God bless you :)

    Shelley Hale… (just a reminder, I am a friend of Jason and Amy Horton's from ACU!)

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
