Up, Up and Away - January/February Blog
Hello! What's up everyone? I can't wait to tell y'all what I've done the last 2 months.
We TRAVELED to the states.
Man oh man, while we were in the states I had the blast of my life. It was like one of those back to the future movies...extreme culture shock. Seeing the new cars, new phones and new clothing styles kinda made me feel like a dinosaur. When I went to Walmart it was shocking that there were 50 kinds of chips. It was very shocking to see what it's like in the states today.
Friends and Family
My favorite part of traveling was seeing our family, friends, and ordering stuff for my chess club on amazon. I haven't seen my papaw and nana or my childhood friends in a long time. It was awesome connecting with friends and family. We talked, we laughed, and made new memories. I hope to see them again soon.

A highlight of my trip to the states was attending a Christian concert. I went to "Winter Jam" with a youth group. It was worth the long drive and long lines. I got to worship with Austin French, Ann Wilson, New Song, Disciple, We the Kingdom, Jeremy Camp and my absolute favorites Andy Mineo and Lacre. I had a tremendous time and I got a great souvenir, a Winter Jam sweatshirt. I can't wait until the next concert.

This is such a God story! The church we attended prior to the mission field listened to our presentation and how we are serving in Honduras. I shared that I was going to start a chess club. I got money to buy materials: 5 chess sets and 2 electronic chess sets. I can't wait to start soon. Stay tuned to find out more about this chess club.

**I just want to give a special thanks to our sending church and all of our supporters (that includes prayer warriors and people along the way who have been good samaratians). You made it possible for us to help in our quest to reach the uttermost parts of the earth for Jesus. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
If you did it to the least of these, you did it to me. (Matthew 25:40)
