Honduras Day 1

April 1, 2013

Honduras team member and Habitat AmeriCorps Nancy Hawk tells us about the team's first day in Honduras:
"Today, we visited the remote Honduran village of Belen Gualcho and a 500 year old Catholic Church.   It was apparent that the local Easter celebration had already occurred.  The floor was scattered with fresh pine needles.  The statue of Jesus was adorned with beautiful flowers and garlands.  A few reverent locals were seated quietly inside.  We took the opportunity to reflect on the different styles of Easter celebrations.  Thanks to our team member Diane's technology, we were able to hear a familiar Easter hymn played on a grand organ in this simple mission.  Great preparation for the work ahead.  Work begins on site in El Rosario Monday morning."
