Honduras – Day 1

I’m supposed to be in Honduras this morning, but instead I’m sitting in the San Salvador airport.

Our flight schedule for our trip was to be: Dallas-Fort Worth to El Salvador to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. All went well yesterday until we got El Salvador last night. When we went to board our last plane for a quick flight to Honduras, there were not enough seats. Somehow our airlines had overbooked the plane and we were told that three people were going to have to stay behind and catch the first flight in the morning.

Unfortunately my 8 year old son, Cooper was on the “stand by” list, along with one of my deacons and his wife, John & Amber.

Lea was a little panicked (okay, a lot panicked), but they allowed me to trade places with Cooper. That left the three of us, John, Amber and myself, to stay behind last night while the rest of the group went on to Honduras.

Our airline put us up in a nice hotel, plus fed us both supper and breakfast. We’re scheduled to fly out in about an hour.

Our group made it fine last night to Honduras. I’ve heard that they all slept well, will have church this morning and then go to work. One of our projects today is to tear down a little (18×18) run-down home where a family of four lives. Then we’ll be building a nice new one later this week.

Hopefully, John, Amber and myself will be catching up with the others by noon today. Although it was a little setback for us, God took care of us fine AND we got to see San Salvador, El Salvador.

Thanks for you prayers. Much love,

~Trey

  1. Things like this make me wonder why airlines keep griping about not making enough money and having to tack on more fees. If they were more efficient with booking and pretty much everything else they do, they’d be fine.

    Glad you’re safe, of course. Thanks for keeping us posted.

    Hopefully you’re in Honduras with the others by now!! You and the group are in my thoughts and prayers. As a side note…..I lived in San Salvador for 3 yrs. (1st – 3rd grade) because of my father’s job with the American Embassy. Glad the Airlines took care of you overnight!

    I can relate to your wife’s sense of panic concerning your child and am glad that you were able to trade him places. May the 3 of you get out safely today

    Hopefully your son isn’t scared of continuing without you. I’m sure you are there with him now. :)

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
