I'm supposed to be in Honduras at the moment, instead I am in a hotel in Miami! :) We were only flying four hours total! We left the hotel in Raleigh this morning at 4:30am! Got to the airport in less than ten minutes. Found out the flight to Miami was delayed. We were supposed to leave at 7:00 and it was delayed until 12:15! We are travelling as a group of 11, and poor Mike was with the ticket counter agent for TWO HOURS! (poor ticket counter lady too!) We missed our flight to Honduras, so we're in a hotel in Miami! They gave us food vochures, hotel rooms and food for tonight and tomorrow. They've treated us well, but it would have been nice to just get to Honduras.

The original plan was that our team of 11 would do lots of set up work today, and then meet the group of 75 tomorrow at the airport. As it is now, if we get in on time, we'll get there 15 minutes before the first part of the group arrives! But it'll be fine. God is good, even (and especially) when plans change!!

We actually got to rest more today, than we would have if we had been in Honduras! :)

We had an awesome week last week. I got to hold a three week old baby, it was his first day at a day care. The day care is with a local church, they serve single parents. He has three other siblings in the same day care, all under five, Mom is 24 years old. I can't imagine! I would have held him every single day if I could have! :)

He has so much potential, but the life he's been born into---just sad to think about!

Off to Honduras in the morning. The alarm went off this morning at 3:30am! Tomorrow it goes off at 6:00! Sadly enough, our whole group was glad to sleep in!!
