After a night that was short on sleep and very long on packing, we left early this morning for San Pedro Sula. A friend, Emilson drove us in his truck. We travled the back dirt road that used to take hours becuase it was in such bad shape. The government has poured a mountain of effort and money into getting that road drivable as now it is the main way to get in and out of Trujillo. We passed many places were we could see how the water had been, up to twenty feet higher than normal. It was incredible to see where it carved new river beds around the bridges and toppled huge trees by eating away all the soil under thier massive root systems. We are so thankful for the nice and dry weather we have been having that made it possible for all the road repairs to be done in time for our departure today. We had no difficulties getting here and are very thankful for Emilson's willingnesss to drive us instead of the 6-9 hour bus trip.
Pray for us as we make our final preparations. We fly out Thusday and Lord willing arrive home, in New Hampshire on Friday morning. We have said most of our goodbyes. It was hard for us to leave the people we have come to love here in Honduras. The past two weeks have been much less stressful as the flood waters receded and we were able to devote more time to other things. It seemed like just here at the end of our stay for this time, God was opening doors left and right for different things we have wanted to pursue in the past. We are excited to go home and see our friends and family and we are looking forward to what the future holds.

Hello Sunshine,
I'm so thankful that you all made it safely to SPS, and glad that you had extra time with Emilson as well. God is forever amazing us with the way He goes before us in all things. "Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and power.... for everything in heaven and earth is Yours." 1 Chronicles 29:11
I will continue to pray for Samuel and Johnny/Rosa - it must be so hard to leave at this time.... But they are in the Lord's hands and I will pray that they will lean on Him to carry them through.
We can't wait to see all of you!
Praying for you,
love Carolee & Steve
