It’s been nearly a month since 44 people from Florence loaded boxes, boarded planes and served in Honduras.  Here are some of the highlights of that experience.  What a privilege it is to carry the name of JESUS wherever we go.

Tonight as we sit here eating dinner and listening to island music, we think about our day serving Jesus on the Island of Roatan.  We took the long winding mountain road across the island to Pastor David’s church. Back home, even if our parking lot is partly made of dirt, we still get to drive by cars.  They travel to church by johnboats.  Think about it.

Today we served all afternoon doing a health fair and carnival with about 250 people from the community.  We had a small bounce house, games and face painting for the kids.  The medical team was handing out health info, doing basic screenings and giving health kit supplies.  

We finished out the day with a worship service led by our students in a church building that’s roof was donated years ago by Nucor.

Ebenezer & Florence, your hands are all over this country.  Thanks for giving so faithfully.  Tomorrow we have a day of relaxing and fun planned and then we have our closing group meeting before boarding the planes for home on Saturday morning.  It’s been an amazing 10 days!

Honduras Day 8

It’s been an amazing journey here in Honduras.  We have experienced so much this week as a team of 44.  We’ve had ups and downs and crazy times too.  Jokes have been shared, laughs have been aplenty and tears have been shed too.  The hardest days were serving at the dump (literally a dump where people live) and leaving the orphans last night. But the Lord has been so good to us.  We are all healthy and our eyes are more fully open to the presence of the Lord and His work around us.

Today began early and we packed up and loaded trucks at 6:00am to get 44 people three hours across the country to the airport in time to fly to Roatan.  To explain to you God’s provision for our team let me share one story from today.   On the long bumpy dirt road from Limon one of our vans blew out a tire.  Typically there is nothing on that road for miles at a time.  Van #2 rolled to a stop with a busted back left tire just 25 yards from a tire repair shop!  …on a dirt road people!  That is all God.  To make it even better, the man jacked up the tire and in a matter of minutes had us rolling again.  Wow.   

We are now in Roatan and tomorrow we will be hosting a health fair and carnival for a church and community at Oak Ridge and then worshiping with them tomorrow night.  Continue to pray for us!  Here are a few pics from the past two days.
