Hello, Praying Partners and Co-laborers in the Ministry,
When Paul was writing to the Philippian church, he penned a great statement, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,” Php. 1:3. I too, think of you all often in my prayers. We are thankful to our Lord for your faithfulness. We know that you are praying for our family and ministry here in Honduras.
I mentioned in our last letter about the water well that was dug at the camp site by a ministry that wants people to have clean water. Well, a group came back and wanted to distribute a water filtering system in an area where there is no clean water. We were able to supply 38 families with clean water filtering systems. To watch them drink the water and see how it works was amazing. During this trip, there were several people who made decisions for Christ. One family was in church the following Sunday.
Here in Honduras Father’s Day is celebrated in March. So, we had the opportunity show the fathers that came how much they are loved and appreciated. Each year we have an elimination “game time” to see who is the Father of the year. A special time with fathers and their children. This year there were over 30 fathers present. The top three received a hammer, a tape measure and screw driver. Each tool represented a fathers role in the family. Then, they received a new Thompson Chain Bible, the most important tool a father can have.
Earlier this month, Bethelem Baptist Church, here in Danli, celebrated their fifth anniversary. It is amazing how time is passing! We were praying as a church that God would move in a great way and He did. Around 385 people came to the service and several decisions were made for the Lord. Several of the visitors that I had a chance to talk with enjoyed the service and are planning on returning.
This week is Holy Week here in Honduras, so, next week will be a week of many visits. Please pray with us for these visits to be life-changing for those whom we are able to share the Gospel.
Lastly, we still have a need! I shared in February of a need that we have for a bus. Several people have responded and have given towards the purchase. However, if you have a bus that you would like to donate to the ministry here in Honduras, we have a church member that is in the States and can get us the bus. If, however, you would like to contribute to the purchase of a bus, please contact me at the information listed below.
Thank you for praying for the marriage classes. We have around 35 to 40 couples that come each Sunday morning to participate in the class. However, I think that some of them come for the donuts☺, for privacy purposes no names will be mentioned😉. God is teaching us so much through His Word! Thank you LORD!
Hello Faith Baptist Church,
Just wanted to give you an update. The month of April is our anniversary and we are celebrating five years in Danli. The first two years we met in the home of our first Deacon. Then, after much prayer and hard work we were able to start building our church facilities and this past Sunday was a huge blessing. We, as a church, spent much time in prayer for this special day and we spent much time inviting friends and relatives; including visitation and soul-winning. God blessed this year with an attendance of around 385 people. There were some professions, but I believe the real work will come on the follow up visits.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support. We consider it a privilege to be one of your missionaries to the Honduran people.
