How to get a Free Trip to Honduras

Yesterday a bunch of us decided that we were giving up sodas, cokes, etc. I was thinking, “Why put something in my body that’s not good for me.” In fact, I decided that I’m not even buying soft drinks for my family for a month. If they want one, they have to use their money to buy it.  (I’m so mean).  Then my friend, Marc Tindall, suggested a better reason for giving up soft drinks … they are expensive and you could trade them for a trip to Honduras. Here’s his thinking…

“While visiting here in the USA the past few weeks, I have been blown away at how much a Coke costs at convenience stores. No longer available in cans – nope, gotta buy the big bottle at $1.69. Are you kidding me? Drink 2 a day and you have spent nearly $4 (pay uncle sam 10%). That is $120 a month and $1440 a year – enough to pay for a week in Honduras with the Childress Team in 2011. So, no Cokes for Honduras is a great trade off! See you in Honduras!”

Yip, that’s like a free trip to Honduras next summer … all you have to do is give up buying cokes. Besides, have you noticed how much you pay for a soft drink at a restaurant when you eat out? Most of the time $2 and sometimes more. Ridiculous!

So here’s how you get a free trip to Honduras with me … give up your soft drinks (ice cream, Starbucks or other expensive extras) and make the trade off.

I promise … it’ll be worth it.

BTW:  This is day two with no soft drinks.   I’m holding strong (and saving for my next Honduras trip).

    I’m game. I’ve got the money saved to go, but I’m giving up on all the junk food as well.

  2. Scott says:

    Day four w/o soft drinks and day three w/o regular coffee. I did brew a few cups of decaf today.

  3. Gallagher says:

    I prefer to keep my soft drinks and use my Skymiles!!! Ha!

    I can’t wait!

    Only 3 cups of coffee today and water with lemon in it. Hopefully no one decides that “we” can go without coffee. In my world someone would get hurt. Oh and by the way beside no “cokes” I also have decided to start back at f3 on top everything else I am doing. So I will be accountable this time, the last time I just caved and couldnt last more than a couple of days.

    Love it!! Not sure when I am getting to Honduras with you, as I don’t know if I will be in China, the Philippines or America (or wherever else God leads me!!) by next summer…but I know one day I’ll get there…and in the meantime I will save money :)

    It WILL all be worth it!!

    that picture breaks my heart and yet makes me smile at the same time, because my hope is that she is a Child of the King!

  • 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.
