Giving Back

During Holy Week, the kids were off of school and we decided it would be a great time to introduce them to lives of service that we hope will spill over into all aspects of their life.

So we decided to make cookies for the fire and police men of Tegucigalpa
The kids had a great time making cookies
And were really excited about visiting police and firemen
Our first stop was the main fire station for the city. The kids were really shy at first.
But the firemen loved it.
Climbing up into the fire truck at the fire station in La Vega (right next to Baxter)
They were sooo excited to be in the big truck
Fireman Jose, The girls were afraid to wear the clothes.
The kids with the head fireman. He had lots of fun showing them around
Fireman Darwin saving Escarleth
The police can´t have their picture taken in Honduras but here they are with the police truck.

In total we visited three different places and put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces. The kids also got an up close and personal look at some of the people serving in their communities. We hope to do this once a month from now on and show appreciation for a very under appreciated profession in Honduras.
