Friend Nancy’s trip to Honduras with Friends Peace Teams
Peacebuilding en las Américas Gathering in Honduras
by Nancy Shippen
I was delighted to arrive Saturday with Shirley Way to join Lorena, Ondina, Salomón, Monica, Val, Allie, Charles and Harry in time for dinner and a Zoom call to the Asia West Pacific FPT gathering happening in Indonesia simultaneously. We were able to introduce ourselves, send best wishes for fruitful times together, and learn a singing/clapping game.
The Catholic retreat center where we stayed was simple in accommodation and food but rich in chances to sit together and share our lives and work.
I am so sorry I don’t speak Spanish and am hugely grateful for the simultaneous translation in all our sessions and when requested to speak individually to people. Unfortunately I did miss some general conversations happening around me and would have loved to have more understanding of the frequent laughter.
