I managed to go to the hardware store, ordered all my supplies in Spanish, didn't use Google translate or wave my arms, and without repeating myself in English over and over hoping they would somehow understand.
With the help of all, we are able to put a new roof on the school in the San Francisco community! What a blessing it is to see the community coming together along the side of us! Thank you for your continued donations:
Had a blast doing the medical in the mountains today. The people of San Francisco are precious to me. I played a game with the boys that my dad taught me. They were all laughing. Only one boy beat me.
Nothing! I repeat, nothing could have been done without those that prayed, financially supported, and labored for this ministry. It’s NOT us who I boast upon, but those that worked with and through the Lord Jesus Christ.
October 31, 2013 we moved to Honduras. We started with 6 suitcases and a dream. About 6 weeks in country we met Pastor Favio. At that time, he was meeting with approximately 8 to 12 people on every Thursday night in La Laguna and holding a bible study in La Esperanza. Now fast forward two years!!

We are meeting with some of the community members on the new school we will be building next year. We are really excited about what God is doing. This school will be a staging area in the mountains for the gospel through medical, children's ministry work, community outreaches, and much more. Thank you to the Duke family for donating the land.
In the culture of the Chorti Indian communities, it's common for the people to not get legally married due to being so expensive; governmental fees. They will just call each other husband and wife. A group within the church wanted to get married before the eyes of God. Under the Honduran law, they have to be married at the municipal building before the church wedding.
Helping a friend of mine, Ricardo Castro, vaccinate his cows. It was a fun learning lesson. This is our desire to have cows as well.
The Bread of Life (Word of God) is to sustain us in all areas of our life. When you go beyond it to manifest something more so; you will have to feed upon something that's not part of the Bread of Life.

We are teaching the kids how to work with each other in the local church. We tied them up in a knot and they had to figure out how to untie themselves. Then they had a church meeting, appointing leadership. It was really fun seeing them work with each other!
Here is a feeding project we are currently working on. Our goal is to raise vegetation and fish. This will be able to help our ministry in so many different ways.
It's always great to see friends. I have known Oscar and Maira since 2008. They are some of the first people I met when I began my mission work here in Honduras. They are a beautiful family!
One word that robs so many Christian parents of their children's souls. (COMPROMISE) We can't permit it to exist in our homes. The Word of God must be upheld no matter what. We must live it ourselves before our children and require the same of them.
