Río de Agua Viva Returns!

Well...It's off to the San Pedro Sula airport to fly back to the U.S today. I have only spent a mere 17 days here, but I have never felt so blessed with so much in such a short period of time.

My journey started with an interviewing team of James of Hattiesburg, Ms, Decatur, Al's “Capi-Natán, and Mario “Mas Amable” of La Ceiba, Atlántida traveled to the North Coast town of Cusuna to film interviews and replications of the community agents training there. We were joined by Pastor Nahun Flores, a jack of all trades, as our liaison to the community. I look forward to giving you the full low-down of what I can tell you in future blogs!

We four amigos then met up with an additional stream of AHMEN volunteers in flowing through Honduras to make the Río de Agua Viva team. Upon arriving in Honduras we converged with the additionally mighty rivers of ASI-Jutiapa and the jewelry students of Los Laureles, and our interaction shared treasure troves of new resources our rivers had not known our collective well-being lacked. 

Complete the circle.  Join an AHMEN project today!

After the Río team left I traveled on my own all the way to Yorito, Yoro. I met personally with and grew close to many of the community agents training there. I see so much potential for long-term sustainable growth in this area and am so excited to help them document their journey, and so do others! I certainly thank Fanny, Jovel, and Melvin for their hospitality during my entire stay.

Returning home tomorrow doesn't quite feel right, but neither does staying here to serve. I am as attached to the communities we partner with in Honduras as I am with those in the U.S. where I've lived. I would like to work full-time for AHMEN, and this team showed me that is possible through prayer, praise, and preparation. Surely you've seen us posting all week on our respected Facebook groups and pages??  We want to share with with you.Join us on the AHMEN website and on all of the other AHMEN Blogs! Join our Twitter page, and Pinterest. You can't miss out on the full-details of an exciting June in Honduras. Join a growing coalition to foster justice-based projects today!

Together, we are the difference.
