A little warm up in January – FOB Mission Trip


2 mighty PAX passed their covid tests and boarded a 6:10 flight to head to Honduras for a little warm up for the body and the soul.

There is something about helping others that are in need, often the one that is helped the most is yourself.

YHC has been trekking to Honduras for 6 years and has led 4 trips. The greatest joy is to bring new folks and this year we were lucky enough to be joined by Pigskin who is a natural for trips like this. Certainly he will echo that FOB is a well run organization and that the trip had a great balance of helping others, camaraderie, and growth of the soul.

FOB teams travel to remote villages and we provide medical, dental, vision, and vitamins for young and old with an emphasis on helping children and building stronger healthier communities.

The best part of this trip was getting to work with Pigskin throughout the week. We mostly worked together in dental. The experience of seeing teeth pulled makes one never want sugar again – at least not without a good toothbrushing after.

We talked about some 1st F, but frankly YHC did not adapt to the heat very well this time, feeling dehydrated all week. It wasnt even that hot: 65F – 83F. Luckily we only had one day of rain at the end.

Let us know if you want to know more about it or join an upcoming team. FOB runs 12 trips a year and they are always looking to round out a team with 1-2 more.

FOB has a virtual benefit April 29. Let Gomer know if you want more details or if you can sponsor or donate an auction item.
