Editor’s Note: I just realized that this post has been sitting as a draft for the past few days…. enjoy! Today started off a slow, rainy morning. We had breakfast together over at the priest’s house. The kids were back in school, so the ranch was almost silent. Due to the rain and temperature being […]

This morning we got the gracious gift of being able to sleep in. We all met up for breakfast at 8:30am, since I was the one cooking I had an earlier rising than most men. We had eggs and chorizo for breakfast. Our coffee pot is broken and the coffee maker is cracked as well. […]

Jesus + Mary + Joseph We’ve arrived at Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, after traveling for 10 hours to get to Honduras and getting our bearings in this new country (new for everyone except for Fr.
