It was a phenomenal trip!! Honduras is a beautiful country with such heart warming people. So many hugs from kids and adults alike!
“I absolutely loved the experience of the trip! Everyone was so thankful that we were there to help. Seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces is the most rewarding thing. “17 years old (Student 2013 Thanksgiving service trip).
“Honduras was one of the best trips I have been on. Being able to help people who were so thankful really made a change in my life. Now I really want to help more people throughout my life.”17 years old (Student 2013 Thanksgiving service trip)
“I can’t wait to go back to Honduras because I was able to help the village and that changed my life because I saw people living in poverty and they were still happy. That made me grateful for what I have.”8 years old. (Student 2013 Thanksgiving service trip)
“The trip is a fun and cool opportunity. No matter what the amount of work you get done, everyone is so grateful.”16 years old. (Student 2013 Thanksgiving service trip)
“Some kids are living in poverty and I realized some people in the world don’t have have as much as other people and that’s what I learned working in the schools in Honduras. My favorite parts of trip were playing soccer with the friends I made in the village (El Cedrál) and finding the
waterfall in Nuevas Delicias.”10 years old. (Student 2012 June trip).
“It is a fantastic time. You are never worried about the work because the people you help are so thankful. Receiving the thanks from these people
for what you have done is a wonderful experience.”18 years old (Student 2013 Thanksgiving Service Trip)
Today is the day that I ﬁnally am headed off to Colombia for 18 days with school. But, at the same time, after going to class and them talking about travel safety (and water and food safety) I can't help but think of you! I just thought I'd thank you for being the ﬁrst person to really take me out of the country to a developing country where my eyes were opened to other peoples' lives. Now I'm absolutely addicted to that! Also, it just makes me appreciate how great care you took of us. Having the villages be welcoming and protecting of us and the hotel cautiously prepare our food was fantastic as now I will be "fending for my own" in many senses. Not only will I be with 27 other white people, but I'll have to watch what I eat and drink on my own.
That being said, MUCHAS GRACIAS for the teachings :)!Emily Hrycaj 20 years old. (Student 2011 and 2012 June trips).
