Dream On Party

August 10, 2017

What Is The Dream On Party?

Dream On Global is sponsoring the very first La Fiesta De Los Suenos (Dream On Party) 2017 in San Pedro Sula Honduras. This event will be held on November 3rd and 4th 2017. Honduras as a country faces many challenges from poverty, drugs and single home families. Because of this the majority of the people have settled to live very substandard lives. The good news is that 65% of the population is under the age of 25 and that with your assistance we can help change Honduras through just one generation.

How Can I Help?

We can’t do this event without your help! Prayerfully consider giving to help support our vision of empowering the young people of San Pedro Sula Honduras to pursue God’s dreams for their lives.  

Those Who Dream The Most…Do The Most

Honduras (Planning Trip) Day #2

August 10, 2017
We woke up with great anticipation for the day, because we knew we would be seeing a lot of San Pedro Sula today. I totally wish I could drink orange juice all day long down here if it wouldn’t give me an ulcer, because it’s just so good! Below are some highlights from today… just overviews definitely because when your with Pastor Wilmer so much happens.

Schedule – August 5, 2017

  • 5:00 AM I think Jordan is awake… look at the clock… yup it’s only 5am definitely not getting up yet.
  • 6:00 AM Miles as well get up… it’s so bright outside
  • 7:00 AM This breakfast is stellar… orange juice is actually sweet… “minute made” has been ripping us off in the USA
  • 9:00 AM Pastor Wilmer said 9 o’clock sharp… still not here. Honduras time…
  • 10:00 AM Flying drones, playing soccer, shooting video… No rules driving, pretty sure every 16 year old should come down here to learn how to drive…
  • 12:00 We just ordered 25 Little Caesars pizzas for the kids… the security guard told Jordan to stop filming in the restaurant. I think we should buy stock in Little Caesars now…
  • 1:00 Wow I don’t know if we will have enough pizza for all these kids… Jordan has the coolest dance moves ever (Watch day #2 video)
  • 2:00 Coffee shop… Jordan needs it to survive… wow it’s actually pretty good when there’s caramel in it
  • 4:00 We get to see where one of the kids in the program lives… heartbreaking… yet they are so happy. Maybe material things really don’t give you joy..
  • 6:00 It’s pitch black outside… time for podcasts… Pastor Wimer, do you have a blue tooth speaker… like this one? (pulls out a giant speaker) Sure, that will work (Go Big PW)
  • 7:00 Pizza arrives and podcast is in full swing… here comes the dog.. keep talking.. here comes the friends… keep talking… here comes the dog again..
  • 10:00 It’s midnight back home… time to hit the hay. Jordan is still editing videos like a boss.. I think he’s a robot.

Honduras (Planning Trip) Day #1

August 4, 2017
Jordan and I’s adventure started out by arriving at a generous friends house late Thursday night, to spend the night before waking up before the roosters as we had to fly out of Detroit. When we arrived our friend informed us that everyone was asleep so be very quiet… it seemed like every square inch of the house creaked as we were trying to be quiet and I accidentally slammed a door… great start to the trip 🙂 If you don’t know me, I need at least 8 hours of sleep to function, unlike Jordan who is robot-esque and doesn’t need sleep. So… getting up at 3am is rough for me, but Jordan took it like a pro! All the way to the airport, we kept saying that we were probably to early, but when we arrived there was a super long line to get through security. We got through in time, and boarded the plane to head to Houston. When we arrived in Houston they were boarding our connecting flight already. We ran to Chick-Fil-e real quick to grab breakfast… boarded the plane for Honduras. Every time I bring someone new to Honduras, I am always a little nervous just because I am unsure of how they will adapt. Jordan crushed it… beard and all! To shorten our first days adventure, I have put the day in a short time lapse below. Enjoy.

Schedule – August 4, 2017

  • 3:00 am Woke up, felt terrible, drove to the airport, why are there so many people up this early?
  • 7:30 am Boarded plane for Houston, wait there’s a lucky seat on this plane that gets 5,000 free miles? No free peanuts… bummer
  • 10:00 am Arrive in Houston, Chick-Fil-e here we come, you have a YouTube page?
  • 10:30 am Leave for San Pedro Sula, Jordan wins the lucky seat!
  • 12:30 Suppose to be on the ground by now. Still circling the airport. Sittin the tarmac now. Still sitting on the tarmac. Still sitting on the tarmac.
  • 1:30 Going through customs. Is that guy holding a machine gun?
  • 1:45 Pastor Wimer’s driving is something special… I think Jordan just peed himself.
  • 2:15 Lunch at the hotel. Ah, peace and quiet for lunch. Nevermind, karaoke in the afternoon?
  • 4:00 Pastor Wilmer tells me in preaching tonight
  • 5:00 Jordan is editing videos like a mad man… I’m prepping for tonight
  • 7:00 God always shows up when He is bragged on… He loves to show up and show off. Man, there are great things in store for Honduras. Chile’s anyone?
