Being in Telg. was quite the experience!! My first impressions: what a busy city!! It was like culture shock for me after being on this quiet small island for so long!! I was happy to finally leave the city limits and start our 22 km. drive up to Valle de Angeles.
|what a quaint little village!|
My first impression: it is cold!! They told us to bring warm clothes and I am glad for the jeans and the hoody I brought but I was chilled all weekend. But the elevation is about 3000 ft so it is to be expected and it was a nice change. Even with a warm blanket, and socks my feet were still cold! But the air was fresh and that was a nice change!
My second impression: so many flowers!!! I don't need to tell you I was in flower heaven! I was. Oh my goodness! Our little hotel had so many amaryllis growing: deep reds, oranges, striped pinks! I was in my glory. As well there were geraniums, daisies, cosmos, roses, lilies, glads, impatience... every imaginable flower! OH!! One thing my Mom taught me is: there is no harm in asking. So I went to the owner and asked for some of the amaryllis, lily and a purple alium and of course, he said yes (hallelujah)
It was quite humerous seeing us walking through the airport with a big bag of plants and a dozen donuts from dunkin donuts. Life is better on Roatan with flowers and donuts I'd say!!
|i was overwhelmed by the beauty!|
My third impression: I love these missionaries in Honduras!!! The people we met were so friendly, God filled and real. It was wonderful to exchange stories and passion, pray together, laugh together and learn together. The key speaker for the retreat was David P. Robinson who taught us about "Coaching and Leadership" You can check out his website here. It was a wonderful, refreshing, empowering, connecting time!
|what a wonderful time we had!!|
