Since I got some pictures to upload I wanted to just give an update of our efforts here since lack of time...and internet connectivity have kept me from posting the last few days.
We are all doing FANTASTIC!
Truly. So much so, that we had scheduled a team that had worked hard the day before to have some down time and rest time at the hotel yesterday morning, and first thing that morning our phone rang here at our house and it was someone saying “just a heads up no one that is schedule for rest time wants to, they want to work!!”
I mean really…wow!! What an amazing group of people we are blessed to be serving alongside!
So we reworked the schedule and happily factored those folks back into work projects!!
Several have VOLUNTEERED to get up with Walter and Daddy & be at the school this morning by 6am to work some more on the wiring and ceiling they are working hard to complete. Let me tell you, it was amazing with all the new fans Walter (AL) and Aaron (MS), Daddy (GA) and team have installed and the eave vent/fans that we brought and have been started....just how cool that building in the school is now. Wow!!!!! Last night sitting in there even with standing room only at our campaign it was getting a little cold for me amazingly!
Speaking of our campaign…..God is GREAT! As I said, it was packed.
We had taken our van out to an area called “Honduras Aguan” where the Mision del Caribe church is. The minister out there, Santiago, planned to bring his truck as well. It had looked like a storm was coming and rained just a little so they thought that would be PLENTY of car space to get everyone here as they thought some wouldn't because of the threat of rain. But the church members out there invited neighbors and relatives just as they had talked about the importance of…..and 23 people loaded into our 15 passenger van and more than that were packed like sardines standing in the back and crammed inside the cab of Santiago’s truck. 10 people or more were not able to get here….sigh….so tonight we are arranging for another vehicle to drive out there and perhaps more trips
We had a ladies class taught by Evelyn (The principal at the school) and translated by Maybelline (the director or Little Hands Big Hearts). Then, a Men’s class taught by Ricky (minister at the West Metro church in Georgia) and a children’s class planned and taught by our North American and Honduran young people that are college age…ish.. It all went wonderfully. The topic for last night was living as a Christian Woman/Man God’s expectations are the same for Christians in North America and in Honduras so it applied to ALL of our lives! It was a blessing to share in a class with my Christian sisters!!!
Tonight the men and women will be together and the lesson will be taught by Dago (one of the church leaders here), and then tomorrow for worship Ricky will be preaching.
Please, if you will, keep these efforts in your prayers.
This afternoon a group will join the Limonal congregation to do some evangelizing and also inviting to the meeting tonight. Another group will head out here to Little Hands where ladies from the Buenos Aires congregation will be teaching our ladies/girls to wash clothes in a pila (I'll take pictures don't worry) meaning by hand with a washboard. We will be washing all the clothes we plan to donate that we've been wearing so that Monday we can get those distributed! Then tonight after dinner it's night 2 of the campaign....another blessed day here in Honduras serving a loving Savior!!!
Your families are blessing me each day….I thank you for sharing them with us and with our Honduran brother and sisters!!!
