Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick......

The clock is ticking away! In less than 8 hours I will be driving Pete, Audrey & Austin to meet their ride for the first leg of their journey! They currently have their carry on bags almost packed... with just a few last minute odds & ends left to tuck in before they are zipped shut! They each have one 50lb. bag packed with donated medical supplies all set to go and now they are working on filling a second 50lb. bag! The second bag also has things for the Honduran people like clothing & fun stuff for the kids like super-sized jacks, soccar balls, frisbees etc.!

To say that the excitement is mounting would be an understatement!! They are going to have sooo much fun! After leaving home, they will be meeting up with the rest of the team in Concord, go over the bags for weight and then head down to Boston all together! Since their flight leaves from Boston at 6AM on Friday.... they'll be arriving extra early and will try to catch a few ZZZZZ's in the airport prior to all the security checks!

They'll be arriving in San Pedro Sula, Honduras sometime Friday afternoon and busing down to Tegucigalpa a little while after that!! :) I'm expecting that the eventual phone call will sound something like this; "We arrived safe & sound!", "WOW... clouds look awesome from an airplane window!", and "Yes, Mom, we'll be careful... don't worry!" Be assured, I'll let you know!

Thanks for keeping them in your prayers as they travel, work with the people in the clinics, play with the children and show Jesus's love! Travis and I have been making our plans! What Pete doesn't know is that we are going to have the back room (porch-like room) all organized & his drum set all in place, the boys' amps and guitar stands ready to go and a small space heater to help with the additional heating needs! :) He will be surprised!! Not to mention... if we can find a small love seat and entertainment center from a second hand store, we may do a living room/kitchen make over too! :) OH YA... when the cat is away, the mice will play!! (Maybe all this is a bit of a distraction technique... I'm not sure, but Lord willing the end results will be good!)
