Many exciting things are going on in Honduras since the last update. For starters, Brenda, Dan, Cam, and I spent time in Honduras for the months of June and July. It was an exciting and productive time in Honduras while we were there. We were able to purchase the land across from the mission house when we will build a building that will be used for youth events, Sunday School, and team events. We are getting a drilled well on the property and we are beyond excited about the well. Water is such a blessing to have, but to have clean, fresh water will meet such a need in our community and for our church.
We implemented a sewing ministry within our church for our ladies. They are beyond excited about this opportunity. This will be a means of income for them as they continue to learn to sew under the leadership of Sister Ana. We also started making soap for the youth to sell to make money for their youth events. Jewelry making was started as a project for the youth, as well. We are so proud of the enthusiasm that our ladies and youth have for the implementation of these new projects.
The feeding kitchen is still thriving and such a huge blessing for our church in Honduras. The feeding kitchen is every Wednesday where the ladies feed the elders first then the school children. The ladies prepare a hot meal, bible lesson, songs, and fellowship. Our leaders truly have a servants heart.
Bro. Dan baptized 13 people while he was there in June and July. It's always an exciting time when people come to know the Lord.
A team spent Thanksgiving in Honduras and the Lord truly blessed this trip. Dan and Bubba got the concrete poured for the new building on the new property. We are so blessed how God is so faithful in this ministry. We had Christmas for the church families and children. We can't all of you enough for the support of prayer and donations you have provided to make Christmas possible for these families and children. It is evident that you can not out give God.
Will Spears will be taking a team over on December 26th where he will conduct a youth retreat. We are beyond excited for this retreat and could not be more proud of Will as he prepares and leads it. Later that week, Dan, Brenda, Cam, and I will be arriving in Honduras. We are so excited for the upcoming work that is about to begin at New Desire Honduras.
As this year comes to a close, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for all of the prayers, love, support, donations, and monthly contributions you all give. Because of you and your generosity, we can GO and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We Just Love Jesus!
