The Proniño fundraiser ends tomorrow so for my last fundraiser motivated post I wanted to let David show you how important this home really is.  When Laura was in Honduras she recorded this message from David for me.  For me, this is the most powerful video I’ve seen from the kids. (If you are reading…

I’ve never been very good at getting accurate first impressions of people.  Often, the people that I have the least interest in getting to know end up being my favorite people.  After meeting and spending time with the 10 on my Americorps team, Sean definitely was the last person on our team that I spent…

My intention in my last post was to recap the last year that I have spent in the States.  But as I started writing it, it took a different turn.  So today, I’m going to try to stick to the plan and write about how things have developed in the last year. I left off…

One year ago today I moved back to the States.  I remember how much I cried and how fearful I was that this was going to be the beginning of me closing the chapter of my life that intensely involved orphans and street kids.  As I sit here a year later, with at least 8…

Some might say that I spend a fair amount of time in coffee shops.  I mean, it’s not like a have a problem or anything… Last Spring, I was sitting in a coffee shop looking at excellent pictures that Kelsey (the girl that loves cameras and is currently teaching a photography course with the kids)…

So, it’s been a week since my last post and I think it’s time for me to get on the ball again.  Only ten more days of the fundraiser!  Do I want to commit to daily blogging for the ten days?  Hmm….  Good news update – Michael Swartz met his $5000 goal which means that…

Today is the last day of the week of daily posts (which was technically 8 days, but who’s counting?)  The reason today is the last day is because it was the last day of the Proniño fundraiser.  But wait!  They’ve extended it til Thanksgiving Day.  Phew!  I definitely think we need that extra time since…

This post is titled “Things your donation will fund” otherwise known as “An opportunity to tell you a bit more about Proniño and upload a whole bunch of pictures”. Here’s  a little sampling: 1.  Food 2.  Education Bryan Geovani about a week after he came to Proniño. He’s currently studying in the center. If a…

I’ve sat here for a while trying to figure out how to begin this post.  I usually try to make the intro at least slightly creative, or I try to hook you and want to get you to want to read more.  But for this post, it just sort of seems wrong.  I will say…

One of my closest friends, the hilarious, compassionate and brilliant Ann Steffen, came with me to Honduras last month.  I love it when my worlds collide.  Especially when it’s two worlds that I love.  So, I had been looking forward to showing her all of my favorite restaurants and introducing her to every single child…
