Mountain Top

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." (Galatians 6:9 NIV)

After a few days of meetings with the ESL teachers in Honduras, I was finally able to site see. 

Yesterday morning Glenys took me along with another friend who lives across the street to climb to the Coca-Cola sign half way up a mountain. The start was great, but half way up I started to not feel too well. The heat, humidity and altitude was not agreeing with my body. There was a point when I would have wanted to just turn around and go back to the car. 

Glenys was with me the whole way and she kept stopping with me. Once we had passed the halfway mark the road was not as steap and it was actually a lot easier. 

As we looked at the city from above it was quite refreshing to have been able to accomplish what we had set forth to do. We found an area to sit and we all prayed together. As I was praying I was reminded of the very first time I attended church. The sermon was about a mountain top and how it's sometimes difficult living life as a Christian. We climb our mountain and we fall, hurt ourselves and sometimes it's difficult to continue. I remember the minister saying that we need to dust ourselves off and continue the walk because we will team a harvest if we do not give up. I will admit, it was a beautiful view from above. 

I have days that I want to give up and go home. Especially when there are problems, even when it doesn't involve me. I have always ran away from problems rather than facing them. 

Being in Honduras I have learned a lot regarding teaching ESL, but I also have learned a lot about myself. I'm excited to go back home, see the children and continue in the path that God has put in front of me.
