A Weekly Journal Chronicling My Life As It Intersects With The Garbage Dump Community Near La Ceiba, Honduras

Sunday after church we loaded up about 35 of our finest soccer players into a cattle truck loaned to me by a church member and we headed off to the beach...not to swim mind you but to take advantage of the regulation-size field that sits just on the other side of the dunes. The field that we have available to us in Los Laureles is pitifully small and just doesn't get the job done especially when all 37 of our kids show up. Thus when the opportunity becomes available to us, or when my local rancher friend isn't hauling cattle off to slaughter we take the kids to local municipal fields to give them a feel for what it's like to play on a large field.

stretching, you have no idea how beautiful it is to see these kids this organized

I am a follower of Jesus, lover of all things Honduran and a native of Central Pennsylvania. My physical location is less than fixed and permanent but my heart and mind is ever-present in La Ceiba, Honduras.
