Christmas in Honduras means one thing—the big school Christmas show. This month, the Christmas show at Minerva took over everyone’s attention. After much practice and rehearsal, the show was a great success. Estefany performed a choreographed dance number with her classmates, and Ada participated in a short skit. She read two lines in English to the whole audience! Go girls!
As part of celebrating Christmas, OFH mentors have devoted time to teaching the girls the importance of showing thankfulness to others. In Girl Scouts, the girls wrote thank you notes to staff at Minerva (cleaning staff, administration, maintenance, and secretarial staff), the girls also wrote personal Thank You/Christmas cards with Miss Alina and Miss Anna.
When we ask the girls, they tell us that the biggest thing they are thankful for is their family. They enjoy writing notes to their parents and siblings. And Mari (the girls’ mother) has recently shared something exciting—the family is growing. Mari is expecting a new baby, and is currently in her second trimester. The family is very excited about this and preparing for the arrival of a new baby into the house. Our in-country advisor Irma has been an amazing support during this process, and is helping all of us in any way she can.
From the One Family Honduras staff, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Thank you for your continued support and prayers. We truly enjoy our time and experiences with our OFH family and we are grateful to you for helping us make that possible.
Happy Holidays, and see you in the New Year!
