Jamie Hlas – Feb. 2010

When my mom first told me that we were going to Honduras I did not want to go at all. I thought we would be living in very bad conditions and I didn’t want any part of that. When we left on Friday night I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I kept thinking that what in the world is the Hlas family doing going to Honduras? This has got to be the craziest thing my mom has done yet.

When we finally arrived at the airport in Honduras it took forever to get through customs and I was getting a little grumpy. I enjoyed the two-hour drive to the Children’s Home though.

When we finally arrived I realized that we would be staying in which looked like the best house in the whole town. The next day I was really tired but it seemed like this would actually be a good experience. Everybody on our team was very nice and I liked every single one of them. The kids at the Children’s Home were nice too. The entire week my job was to assist the dental team. I was working with Connie and Cathia. They were so nice to me and even though I am young and didn’t have a clue what I was doing, they accepted me and taught me how to do stuff. I’m really glad I had the privilege to work with them.

I always looked forward to meal time. Dilia is a great cook. I also enjoyed getting to know everyone on the team at dinner time. I also enjoyed devotions every morning.

When Friday came I was not ready to leave all the kids and the wonderful people that I had met only a week ago. I really did want to stay longer. Throughout this whole experience, I learned that you have to step out of your comfort zone and trust that God will take care of you. If you are being obedient to him, he will take care of you and bless you beyond measure. I’m really glad my mom made me go! 🙂
