While we realize it is the holidays here in the US, we also realize that we have SO much to do to get ready to GO to Roatan! Packing the essential items like flip-flops and swim suits is the easy part but when it comes to the everyday things like bug spray and believe it or not spices to cook with, we need a plan of action. Yes, they sell bug spray in Roatan, but it is twice as much as it is here and you use it everyday. There are very few American spices on the island, so Sam's Club-size Tony Cachere's is a must, especially when eating a lovely diet of rice and beans. We will, of course, make our homemade tortillas and pizza crust like we did this summer; you gotta have something familiar when in the mission field.
So, Trey is helping out a family of five that is moving to Roatan in a couple of months. They are from Colorado and will be joining our friends at Living Water 4 Roatan for the next three years. Trey met them in Dallas to pick up their trailer of things and will bring it back tonight to combine with ours for a better shipping rate. In the next week or so he will take it to New Orleans to put in a container on a cargo ship and we are done with the big packing. The rest of our small stuff will go with us in our bags on the plane, whew, it seems so far away but I know it will sneak up on us before we know it.
We have had some great interest in our mission trip and are so grateful for each and every person that has stepped out in faith to support us in any way possible. Thank you for your prayers, your support and your giving. We could not do this without you and we are excited to have you on this journey with us.
Take Care and God Bless,
Connie and Trey
