We are here!
A kind stewardess was very curious as to what our group was planning to do in Honduras. She asked the names of the churches we were from (Wilkesboro United Methodist and South Aiken Presbyterian), and the name of the organization we were going to work for once we arrived in Honduras. After we told her, she made an announcement on the plane recognizing out group, and how thankful she was that we were coming to Honduras to help people and make a difference in the world. Everyone on the plane applauded, and showed their appreciation, saying “God bless” and such things. It was a nice, unexpectedly warm welcome.
Lakey promptly announced to the passengers “we’ll be signing autographs at the gateway.”
