justin_bowenHappy birthday to Miss Leah Owens! Thank you for keeping me in line and for always pushing me in everything I do. It has almost been a year and you still keep me on my toes! I love being best friends with you. I hope you had a great day! @leahowens_2mon
leahowens_ Thank you for being a huge part of why this day was so crazy special to me!! I love you best friend! Today rocked.
justin_bowenThe last of my birthday presents from Leah materialized last night. Ricky Scaggs and Kentucky Thunder at the Ryman. The best of the best. Awesome audience. Awesome show. Awesome night. Thank you, @leahowens_ , for getting me tickets and for putting up with my weird musical tastes. You are the best.2mon
leahowens_ I loved last night with you, Justin! You are so welcome and so loved!
justin_bowenLast night, the interns and I went to a "Dia del Indio" (holiday celebrating the natives of Honduras) celebration. Two of our boys were in a group of kids from their high school to perform an elaborate, multi-part traditional dance. It was an incredible and beautiful sight to see their work pay off in a blend of music and dance. I feel so immersed and comfortable in this culture. A fun night of celebration and friendship. In this picture with Dennis Gomez (JEC), Rafael Adino (the son of JEC's carpentry teacher), and William Ponce (JEC). I'm so proud of their work and so thankful for their friendship. Ya les extraño.5mon
justin_bowenDinner with the Brentwood Hills group at La Cumbre on top of a mountain overlooking Tegucigalpa. 9 days left. The 'end' is becoming real and is so bittersweet. 50% gringo, 50% hondureño. #tubandera5mon
justin_bowenMarlon Carazo has become one of my better friends at JEC. 16 years old. 3rd year of high school with plans to be an architect. And in his free time, he likes to play with Jovenes' new puppies. I caught him laughing as the puppy yawned. One of the best pics of the summer. Just another clear example of how JEC is giving purpose to lives of young Honduran boys. #jovenesencamino#tubandera5mon
jennscanlon Ugh, I love this and him and puppies so much.
hannahg3999 Everything about this picture makes me smile!
justin_bowenCannot express my thanks enough for the these three. I cannot imagine taking on a different culture and language for two months without having people like them to lean on. I know that we still have almost three weeks left, but thank you already to @jennscanlon, @kendalherring, and @beffersseamon for making this summer at JEC even more unforgettable. #tubandera5mon
justin_bowenThe container from BHCC came today full of supplies for JEC and other communities in Honduras! We have been waiting for two weeks for it! Once it came, we had an hour to unload everything. We are pumped by its presence and the fact that it was unloaded so quickly! ¡Lo logramos!5mon
