Greetings from Honduras!
It stills seems so surreal that we are actually here. We give God the glory and praise for how he got us here in such a short amount of time, something only he could do! We praise the Lord for all our supporters who have encouraged and helped send us. We are so appreciative.
We have had two days of Spanish classes and they have gone well. We both have different teachers as we are not on the same level in Spanish. Hannah is learning basic Spanish/how to communicate and David is focusing more on writing and learning aviation terms , theological terms for preaching, and medical terms. Our host family speaks a little English, but are trying to primarily speak in Spanish around Hannah. David is also trying to speak more Spanish around me so I can get used to it. 🙂
A Typical Day so far…
6:00 am- Get up and get ready for the day. The birds sing so beautifully here and often wake you up.
7:00 am- Breakfast with our host family
8:00 am- 12:00 pm- Spanish Classes with one break in between
12:00 pm- Lunch with our host family
After lunch, we are trying to be wise with our time and that includes: research the city and get to know it (it will be where we come every month for our supplies), devotions, catching up with all of you, missions work/preparations for Rus Rus jungle mission base, etc. Every day has been different so far! 🙂 It is very hot in the afternoons so sometimes just relaxing and not being outside is a must. There is no air conditioning either, in case you were wondering. 😉
6:00 pm- Dinner with our host family
After dinner is usually free time as well, but we hope to get to know more people in the community and local church here. We want to be involved. We will be attending a local church here in La Ceiba this Sunday (tomorrow).
Before we go to bed each night, a cold shower is a must after a very hot day. It helps you to sleep so much better. When you come to visit, you will understand completely. 🙂
Saturday is cleaning day here at the home as our host family has a big home to clean. We try to help out as much as possible. It’s also laundry day, which might seem easy. Luckily, we have a washing machine, but there is no dryer so we hang dry all our clothes. Great practice for the jungle!
Sundays are for worship/rest and we will be looking for a local church here in La Ceiba to attend and fellowship with other believers.
Our Little family of 3… soon to be 4! 🙂
Trying new food is a must when moving to a new country! 😉
Our balcony view- Chester loves to bask in the sun. 🙂
A couple bits of information you might be wondering about…
- The weather here is beautiful and tropical like. From 12:00 pm till about 4:00 pm it can get quite hot. It is pretty cool in the mornings and evenings. Of course we are in their winter right now. It will be interesting I am sure during their summer. 😉 Two days so far have been almost 90 degrees, just to give you an idea.
- Chester, our german shepherd puppy, is doing great and loves it here. He has adapted very well. We are so thankful to have him and know he will be a perfect addition for us as a guard and runway dog in Rus Rus.
- Hannah and the baby are doing great. We are in the process of finding a doctor/hospital in the city where the baby will be delivered. We would appreciate your prayers for wisdom.
- Please continue to pray for a healthy and safe pregnancy. Hannah is 26 weeks pregnant and we continue to praise the Lord for this little boy growing in her womb. She has been feeling well and had no complications so far- praise the Lord!
- Pray for our health and safety as we are here in the city. Pray for the transition as we get use to the climate, food, culture, language, and being away from home.
- Pray for relationships we will build here in the city. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel with those we come in contact with. Even though we are only here for language school, we want to make the most of every opportunity.
- Pray for wisdom as we continue to make preparations/plans for our move to the jungle in April/May. There is much to be done before then.
- Pray for us as we will begin the residency process very soon. We have a 90 day visa and are prayerfully aiming to get this done soon. It will makes things here so much easier once we are residents.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support! We love each of you.
Blessings from Honduras,
David and Hannah Mora
