We were able to sleep in a little this morning since we didn't have to leave the bed and breakfast until 9 a.m. We also had enough time to do a devotional after breakfast with the extra time.
Then we headed back to Mogote to watch some soccer games. Ruben, one of the staff members at Hope for Honduras, is extremely passionate about soccer and has started a league. We are so excited for this mission because he is getting the young boys and young men and using soccer, something they love, to teach them how to become better citizens in their community. Machismo, or the attitude that many of the local men in Honduras that they can do whatever they whenever they because they are men, is a huge issue. If Ruben can get the boys, he can get the men, and if he can get the men, he can get the families into church.

After the games were over we headed to Valle de Angeles (Valley of Angles) for some tourist-y shopping. We enjoyed an outdoor lunch at a local restaurant and then enjoyed spending the afternoon walking around the beautiful town and grabbing a few souvenirs to bring home.
We are back at the bed and breakfast until we leave for our week wrap-up at Ron and Shelly's house. I think it's safe to say we can expect quite a few tears as we reflect on what all we've learned this week and say goodbye to this beautiful country that has given so much to all of us.
See you all soon!
