This will be me if you don't come to "It's a Grind" to say good-bye! Posted by Hello

Fiesta! Ole!

Hey there!
Only 17 more days 'till departure! I have been short of breath lately just thinking about all the things I have to do. I have started "packing" already (a bunch of stuff thrown into a big suitcase) but don't have much time as I am working everyday until I leave!
This blog is mainly to invite you all to come say good-bye in a creative way: At "It's A Grind" coffee shop in Cypress, on corner of Lincoln and Valley View Ave, across from Cypress College. I will be working, but come stop bye, grab a cup of Joe(or whatever, we have a variety of goodies!) and distract me from having to do my chores! yea! no, seriously we are slow Saturday nights. Oh, so yea, it's Saturday July 2, 6pm-10pm. Stop by anytime. I REALLY hope to see you there!

Con mucho Carino,
SPEAKS (Laura)

Welcome to the first entry of the Honduras update page for Laura Speaks. I'm writing to you all the way from sunny SoCal. That's right, I've not left yet, not for another month, but there are some updates to report and will be more in the coming weeks up to my departure. Thanks for checking in already!
I have a one-way ticket to Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, for Wednesday, July 6th, at 2am from LAX. If you're sitting around the house with nothing to do, or with insomnia, I highly recommend coming to see me off. As of now, June 13, I don't know what exactly what I'll be doing there, but I have a place to stay and am excited about going and finding a job when I arrive. I don't know how long I'll be there, whether for just this summer or a year. I'd like to stay at least a year to become fluent in Spanish.
I sincerely ask for your prayers for the work that God has planned for me and for a smooth transition as I prepare to leave. There are a lot of "loose ends" (where did that come from anyways?) to "tie up" before I can leave.
Thanks for your support and love!

In His Grip,
