The Faces of San Jose, Honduras

Last Wednesday night was our Honduras team's night to speak to our church family about our trip and what God did that week. My job was to plan the logistics of the evening and one part of that was to put together a slide show of our trip. I went through hundreds of pictures trying to pick out the perfect ones to show the church. In doing so, all the emotions of our trip came flooding back through my mind. So I thought I would share some of my favorites with y'all because I am missing these faces like crazy all over again.
















































My friend, Kristin, so sweetly made 27 lollipops for me to take with me to hand out to the kids. It was a blessing to see the joy on their faces as I was able to give them something so fun and so different for them. Candy certainly is not a luxury they get to enjoy often.




While looking at these precious faces, I can't help but wonder what they are doing right now, or how their sick brother, mother or grandma is, or if their dad made enough money to buy them water today, or how badly I just want to hold those precious babies again. It's with me constantly. Once again, I am soliciting your prayers for the people of San Jose, Honduras.

For the mere fact that you are still posting about Honduras months later, it just shows how tender your heart is towards them. You are so sweet, Janelle. And most definitely a fabulous photographer! Great pictures!

oh these faces made me tear up and wonder how they were too and I wasn't even with you on the trip! Praying God's great provision for them.

Oh these pictures are precious
You can almost hear the laughter of the children!!
These pictures make me want to kiss those sweet cheeks, sit and listen to the old lady tell stories, and rock those babies all day long
What a blessing to be able to visit there and share the love of Christ with them
Thank you for sharing them with us :)
Much love
Kim

Those children are so precious.
To think that I poured half a bottle of water down the sink today because I didn't know whose it was. I certainly take LOTS of things for granted.

Beautiful little faces! Love the cloud background behind the last one.

Hi Janelle. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Always fun to make new blog "friends". :) Your Ella is so adorable. She and my Maggie are about 2 months apart, I think. It is so fun to read about other adventures of mommies and their little girls. :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Gorgeous photos. Made me cry. Just getting back from Mexico, I'm missing those little faces and dark eyes. I hope it stays with me months later! We've talked about keeping our "Mexico hearts." Praying I can!
