Finally, Back Home in Honduras
This month has been a great month. We were in the states for part of January and part of February. It was a well needed trip because we needed to see family especially my dad. He is not doing so good, and is on oxygen most of the time. I feel this could be the last time that I see him in person, so I made sure this trip was to see him for most of the time. Even though we were there to see him we needed to make sure that we travel around and see the people that help support us here on the mission field. I am so glad that we were able to see mostly everyone and a few new churches. I also enjoyed traveling around and seeing Celebrate Recoveries. They were all over the place and on different nights of the week and it was awesome meeting new people. Now that we are back home, it is time to get back to ministry.
Right before we left the states we were required to get a Covid test to enter back into Honduras. Well, Covid test are around $150 in the states when you do not have insurance. Now, we had three days left before we left and we all three came down with a cold, which are symptoms of Covid, so if you have symptoms then you get a government voucher and the tests are free. So, it was a blessing that we all three got sick right before we left because it saved us $450 because the test were free. Hallelujah!!!!
Now, we are right back into teaching at the Rehab. It was so nice to have a warm welcome back at the rehab when we arrived. The men there were so excited that we were back to teach them. I feel like I am at home when I enter the rehab, because these men there have become my family. We have a few men that have returned back to the rehab that have previously graduated but have fallen back into drugs and alcohol. They are doing the right thing, because once you fall you need to get back up and not stay down eating the dirt. We are so proud of these guys to come back and do what is right. I ask that you continue to pray for these men, that they will get a craving for Jesus and not drugs or alcohol.
We have returned back to our life group and am so glad that it continued while we were gone to the states. We are currently working on the past weeks pastors lesson at our study. We are digging deeper into what he teaches us on Sunday and looking for application into our lives. We are currently on Luke 16. God is so good and He has truly helped us find family here through the church we attend and through our life groups that we are a part of.
This past Sunday we had our announcement for Celebrate Recovery. We are having a volunteer meeting this Saturday and then we should be launching Celebrate Recovery the following Saturday for all age groups (Children's Place: K - 5th grade, Landing: 6th grade through 12th grade, and Celebrate Recovery: Adults). We are so excited and we feel that Celebrate Recovery is well needed here on the island and we are asking that you pray for leaders and people to step out of denial and accept that they are powerless without Jesus in their life and come to the conclusion that life is dead without Jesus.
I am full throttle in my college classes right now. I am taking 14 credit hours and it is very difficult. I feel that this semester is one of the hardest semesters I have taken. I ask that you pray for me that I can get all that is needed to be done to complete these classes all while doing full time ministry here on the island. God is so faithful and He will bring to completion what He has started in me.
Thank you all so much for your wonderful prayers and the giving that you are providing for all of this to be able to happen. God will honor your cheerful giving. Thank you all for everything and may God bless you all richly.
