Our Town

For this afternoon's activity with the "Little Hawks", we took the fun outside. And after talking about what amenities every town needs, we set to work creating our chalk. From a giant flower shop to a tiny circus, this is one exciting place to visit!

What We Don't Understand

Last week, we asked our students what they thought adults didn't understand about youth. Check out some of our favorite answers below.

What is one thing that adults don't understand about teenagers?
  • Today's fashion
  • Action movies
  • To have a girlfriend
  • They understand everything
  • That we don't think the same
  • Our way of having fun
  • That we want to reach our dreams
  • Music
  • That we are powerful
  • :,(
  • Playing all day
  • Everything

This afternoon we made our own bubble wands from pipe cleaners with the little kids in El Nido. Thankfully the rain held off for a little while and we were able to spend some time chasing bubbles outside.

Spring Fever in Honduras

One thing we definitely miss about spring is the start of baseball season. But Nick's been busy trying to start a new Escuela El Sembrador baseball team with the students. This afternoon, he was out warming up and our friend, Andi, couldn't resist giving it a try. Check out this adorable video of Andi trying to hit a baseball for the very first time!

Down at the River

This Sunday, El Sembrador had the honor of sharing a special day with a nearby church. The entire congregation joined us for Sunday services and then we all headed to the river for a baptism ceremony. What a blessing it was to see these young Christian women taking this faithful step!
