Day 5 Making Connections

“I know that helping one person won’t change the world. But I can change the world for that one person.”Dani Pollock

Our trip here has been a journey on many levels. Each day we grow in our understanding of the world here in Honduras. We also grow the bonds that will keep us connected here in the future. Today was a day that I will always remember. I hope I have the words to share some of it with you.

The day began early, like so many others. We visited with the elderly and shared a few small gifts with them before we found ourselves in the van once again. We were heading out to connect with families that have been sponsored by members of our team.

The Pollocks, The Trums and the Andersons have all sponsored children here in Honduras through an amazing organization called CFCA (Christian Foundation for Children and Aging). Dani Pollock actually worked for CFCA during the 2 years that she spent here. CFCA is responsible for dramatically improving the lives of thousands of people here, and around the world. They connect children in need with families back home who have the means (and the desire) to help out.

Today was all about making connections, and making friends. We began by sharing a nice meal with the Trums sponsored child, Fany, and her Grandmother. The Pollock’s family, including their child, Digna, also joined us. Gifts, hugs, kisses and tears were shared as the families got acquainted, or re-aquainted with one another. Due to some logistical challenges, Jill Anderson met her sponsored child, Daniel, back at the Elderly home.

After we finished eating, the group divided up. Jill returned to Santa Rosa to meet with Daniel, and the rest of us squeezed into a small Toyota pickup for the ride up into the mountains.
