Quiero decir muchisimas gracias a todos mis amigos catrachos por su entusiasmo en estos dias. Algunos me han preguntaron porque esta gringuita de Missouri, USA tiene tan interés en Honduras. Es un historia bien largo. Crecía en una familia Cristiana, asistio a la iglesia cada semana. Y realmente mi fe, mi relacion con Dios, me… Continue reading ¿Por qué la gringa se interesa en Honduras?
Intento de traduccion de: A Honduran Flag & A Sweat-Soaked Jersey AVISO: Disculpa por el español terrible. Antes del partido mi amiga Erin y yo hablamos y decidimos que necesitábamos hacer un bienvenido acogida para nuestro favorito Sporting Catracho, que había hecho SKC y Honduras muy orgullosos durante los Olímpicos. Así que me trajo mi bandera… Continue reading Una Bandera y Una Camiseta
Erin & I talked before the game, and decided we needed a good welcome home for our favorite Sporting Catracho, who had done SKC and Honduras so very proud during the Olympics. So I brought my Honduras flag. We waved it like mad whenever we got a chance during the game, but we knew the… Continue reading A Honduran Flag & A Sweat-Soaked Jersey

Building a playground in the rural town of Namasigue, which has very little for children to do. Doing puppets in Namasigue for kids who haven't seen such a thing before. Visiting families… Continue reading Honduras 2012 Recap

Every year I like to take some books for the Bilingual School, the Day Care, Casa Hogar Vida, and various people that I know there. I like reading books with the kids, and I think leaving books behind is a good investment. Many kids in the programs don't have any books at home, and they… Continue reading Books for Honduras
Got a sweet message from my amiga Claudia in Choluteca. She and I started reading Charlotte's Web together when I was there in March, and I left it with her, telling her to finish it and let me know if she liked it. My bro, Joey Soto, sent me a video book report from her.… Continue reading La telaraña de Carlota
This article brought tears to my eyes. I've been an Espinoza fan for awhile now, but had never heard his story.You all know my passion for Honduras, and my compassion for latino immigrants in the U.S. So I'm sure you understand why this story touches me. I have also heard that every time Roger visits… Continue reading Espinoza embodies the American dream
I've been asked how I make my frijoles. Frijoles can be used in all kinds of ways. Whole cooked frijoles can be used in rice, on chicken, in omelets, on salads, in soups, all kinds of things. Frijoles Refritos can be used to dip chips, as part of a layer dip, to top baleadas, or… Continue reading Frijoles (Beans) – Recipe
Patastes are my favorite vegetable in Honduras. They are roughly the size and shape of a pear, bright green in color, with pebbly skin and creases at the bottom.

I'm here, doing well, everything is great. We started work today in two groups, one starting construction on a house (my group) and the other working on the playground at Casa Hogar Vida. Lots of blisters and sunburn this first day (the team, not me), but lots of perseverance in the heat, and we made… Continue reading Hi from Honduras!
Since finishing the baby blanket for Meli & Eli, I didn't want to start on another big project, so I decided to do some wash cloths to take to Honduras. I'll be able to give these as gifts to my host family and maybe the ladies that cook at the church. I do my wash… Continue reading Wash Cloths for Honduras
When I first visited Choluteca, Honduras in 2004, I stayed in the home of a sweet lady named Miriam. And then I stayed with her again in 2006 and 2007. She became my Honduran "mom." And over the years, I got to know her daughter, Melissa as well. When Melissa and Eli were engaged, she… Continue reading Candy Colored Baby Blanket
