Intentional: An Honorary Catracha’s Mission Experience

by Stevi Ferguson

All mission trips are different. Even now, having finished my seventh trip to Choluteca, trips to the same place are different every time. I think the theme word of this trip, for me, was INTENTIONAL. I’m not super-efficient at house-building or dirt-shoveling (although I do have some skills and energy to contribute). So when the tools are limited, and some people have to hurry up and wait, I took those opportunities to sit out from the physical labor and have some intentional conversations. At Sra Exodocia’s house, I spent time getting to know the two girls, Nayeli and Marjorie (aka Stefany). I always try to bring books with me, since I feel that a love of reading and learning can only be an asset to these kids, no matter where they are or where they end up. So we read. And we talked about school. And I tried to engage them in some critical thinking. Continue reading Spring Break 2011: Stevi’s Story Part 1

Spring Break 2011: Song of Tears

I Beg You
by Rony Pavon

I want to breathe the air you breathe
I want to see the world in need
Open my eyes
Talk to my soul
And help me be
A worthy son

I beg you
To be everything that exists in my heart
I beg you
To be the compass Who guides me through life
I beg you
To wash down my feet for the great things you’ve planned
I beg you
To take every dream, everything, all I am Continue reading Spring Break 2011: Song of Tears
