Brayan is a little cutie who is sometimes the sidekick in a budding lip-syncing career of another little Proniño cutie, Wilson, aka Mini Beiber.  (I just made that up, I’ve never heard anyone call him that…) These pictures are too cute to just pick one. In a home bursting with boys who more often than…

If you’ve read the last three posts, then you’re probably expecting this one to end with the same result.  One more kid back in Proniño.  I’ve always hated reading books in which I’m filled with hope only to find that the book ends in tragedy.  So, I’m going to start with the end.  Carlos (on…

I left Honduras on Tuesday without having been able to talk to  Carlos or Antony, the other 50%.  Sigh. The next day I received an email titled: “Ummm can you call me?” I opened it to find this picture. The email began like this: “Don’t ask me how it happened, and don’t ask me what…

At the end of the last post, we still had 3 kids on the street.  Read the first post here. (Actually, according to this site, there are roughly 20,000 kids on the street in Honduras.) But back to Antony, Carlos and Walter.  The story continues… Today is all about Walter. Oh this face. Walter has…

Midway through my last trip, I found out that  Antony and Carlos had run away. I found out as I was attempting to gather a group of kids together to do a Christmas craft.  It was one of those moments where you feel like you’ve been punched in the stomach, completely lose your train of…

I’ve been rediscovering the simple wisdom of Sara Groves recently.  Her songs have such a quiet resolve to them.  And many of them have had a profound impact on my life.  Painting Pictures of Egypt encouraged me to continue moving into uncharted water even though I was terrified.  I Saw What I Saw is the clear…

To love at all is to be vulnerable.  Love anything, and your heart certainly will be wrung and possibly broken.  If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one…Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the…

I’m back from a way too long blogging hiatus.  I mean, I made a commitment to weekly blogging and I want to stick to it!!  There are many things that I’ll be blogging about in the next few weeks.  This was an incredible trip filled with the children that I love and a rockin team….

For the first time in over a year, my plane arrived in Honduras while the sun was still shining.  I got through customs, signed the paperwork for my shiny, red rental car and headed straight for Ciento Cinco.  This is the area of San Pedro that I first met David, and where I assumed he’d…

David has run away from Proniño. I’ve been trying to prepare myself for this day ever since he came to Proniño with me in October.  (Read that story by clicking here and then here…)  He had been on the street for five years.  After that much time, the pull of the ‘freedom’ of the streets…
