One of the guys who had been helping to build the house had commented that on Wednesday evening, before there was even a roof, the mother was found sweeping the floor of her new home. As she was sweeping it was not with an attitude of "oh great, look at the dirt all of these guys are leaving on my floor" but more of an attitude of "thank you God for the ability to care for this special home you have given my family." It's amazing the perspective that something so simple by our standards can mean something of such great worth by the standards of another. How often do we perform household chores as an activity we have to do rather than with an attitude of thankfulness for the blessings that accompany the activity?

I am so thankful for the wonderful opportunities to do some remote road roaming in Honduras over the past week. I can now count pills and zip-line with the best of them. Most importantly have again had the opportunity to see the diversity of peoples and cultures that are present within this wonderful world God has created.
And now I look forward to the next adventure...Indonesia!
