A LOOK BACK AT MARCH (through Tyler’s eyes)...
I want to share with you some ministry stuff we did this month. As most of you know we go to the rehab here on the island and teach three times a week. Well, it was during one of these lessons that Lorenda was teaching and it touched the heart of seven people in the rehab. They accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior. Then on a Sunday after church I got the opportunity to baptize three of the guys. One of my favorite experiences at the rehab is when we washed all of their feet for Maundy Thursday during Holy Week. We wanted to be servants like Jesus was and teach them the lesson on being a servant. I am so excited for what God is doing here on the island of Roatan. We are also running a Celebrate Recovery where our church is located, which is inside a well known resort here called Infinity Bay Resort. We are on the third floor in a big conference room. We hope soon we can get this CR on the CR website as a fully running Celebrate Recovery. We are running an average of 15 to 25 people a week. It has been going very well and we hope to see it grow.
This month of March was a great month, and we got a lot accomplished ministry wise and our scuba course we were taking. The scuba course was a great experience and we saw amazing things deep down under the ocean. One of my favorite things that I saw was a turtle and even got to swim side by side with it. Now that we are certified open water divers, we can dive anywhere in the world. That is so awesome. One of my biggest problems diving was when I had to equalize my ears, but before we finished all of our dives, I was able to figure out what worked best for me to get my ears to equalized.
My wife and I have started a workout plan with Crash Fitness. It is an online program that a lot of missionaries use, so that they can stay fit while doing the work that God has called them to do. This program is amazing. They first start out with a Bible devotion, then we do a hard workout, and then they wrap it up with prayer. I am so excited every time we get the chance to workout with them. We have also started eating very healthy so that we can get to our goal weights and also to get our bodies healthier to be able to do a better job working for Jesus.
I want to mention that my college is going well. I am now in the middle of my spring semester. These classes are very tough, but I am learning so much through my online college. I would recommend Eternity Bible College to anyone who has a lot on their plate and also wants a Bachelors in Biblical Studies. You get to work at your own pace, but don’t get me wrong, you have due dates for everything. It is a great school and is fully accredited. It is also great for those who have a very low budget for school.
One of the most fun things we as a family started doing this month is that we go over to a friends house every Thursday night and have a Bible study. This is not just any Bible study, it is a study on supernatural. We are learning about the supernatural aspect of the Bible. It has really helped me understand more about this topic because this topic is not really talked about too much.
All this would not be able to happen without your prayer and financial support. So, we thank you from deep down in our hearts. God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
