Men's conference, Prom, and Quarantine
Wow, now that many of you are staying at home and are able to read our blogs, I promise not to make it too long. LOL.
First, I want to talk about the Men's conference. It was a blast. We heard from 3 different speakers and got to worship together singing as a large group of men. It was so beautiful. I had a great experience at the Men's conference because I was asked to be on a panel to answer questions from the other men. Some of the questions were very hard and theological, but the main question I was able to answer was (I know, I know Jesus and I believe in him and I know he forgives me of my sin and he died on the cross for me but I have a severe addiction to pornography, what can I do or how can I get out of this addiction?) I was able to take this question and responded with my testimony of addiction to pornography and how it is a battle from within but you have to want to get rid of it and know that that is not what God has for you. But, other than that it was a great Men's conference.

Secondly, I would like to talk to you about taking my son, Messiah, to the prom they have here for the missionary kids. It was a great experience for him and it was nothing what I am used to in the states from when I was in high school. They did a little dancing, but nothing like we are used too, it was more line dancing and following the leader. They also did a murder mystery and had to figure out a murder, which took them most of the night. It was like a giant game of clue. After, they all went swimming except the ones that thought it was too cold to swim. All in all, Messiah had a great time and I had a great time as a chaperone.
Us goofy 🤪
Lastly I want to talk about what is going on with the coronavirus. Here in Honduras we have only 9 cases and it is where our airports are. They are all quarantined. They have also shut down all air traffic in and out of Honduras. They have told us to stay in our homes. We are only allowed to come out to go to the grocery store, pharmacy, or to get gas, and if we are caught out without legitimate reason we will be fined. Our city here in Siguatepeque has shut down their borders and no one can leave or come in. We are OK and are in constant prayer for you all in the states and around the world. We are watching international news so we are able to keep up with everything that is going on. What I believe is that this is a time where we can draw closer to God and our families. We need to love them unconditionally just as Christ loved the church.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and your financial commitment so that we can be here in a third world country serving the Lord. We love you all and are praying for you all.
