Update on Honduras

After we posted the other night, we got a call from the brothers in Honduras. It turns out Honduras no longer has a branch, but instead has a translation center. So our information is being forwarded to the Mexico branch and we should hear back soon. Zach talked to the brother (Bill something) for a little bit about the area, and he told Zach that him and his wife served in the area we want to go to for over 15 years, and the English congregations need help still.

It's so exciting to know our information was received and they actually seem to want us. Especially considering the work they had to do to get ahold of us just to let us know what is going on. We thought they would respond by letter, so we didn't put down our phone number or email in the letter we sent. They would have had to call New York to get the info for our brothers, then call our brothers to get our info. I imagine international calls are expensive, although they do have a MagicJack with a New York area code, so I don't know. I just thought it was really loving of the brother to call us just to give us a heads up.

I know our plan is to spend some time in Honduras then come home and go to Nepal, but I get the feeling we will go to Honduras and end up loving it so much we decide to stay. The only thing I don't know about is the Visa requirements. It's been really hard to get info on how to stay for a year or longer. I figured out how to stay for 6 months, you just leave the country for 72 hours after 3 months, then come back in. That really sucks, cause then, you know, we might have to go to Nicaragua or Belize or something. O the horror....

Until next time....
