What can a person say after seeing something take place that has been in their heart for over 5 years!! It is very surreal for me. No longer will I be waiting, but doing!
We left everything behind that we know of and are finally here in Honduras. October 30th, Nancy, Alexis, and I made our way to Tegucigalpa by plane with 6 suitcases and 3 carry-ons. Currently we are living with a very dear Honduran family, the Ponces. They have shown nothing but hospitality and love towards us. Dr. Jorge and Yvonne, we love you and your family, thank you for all you have done.
As we have been here, God has continuously shown us favor and grace, things that many said couldn’t be done has been done through the connections of Dr. Ponce. As we share with him our need to get something done, he says, “I have a friend that can help you!” It has actually turned into a joke with us.
Soon, we will be on our way to Copan Ruinas, our final destination. I am in great anticipation in getting there. My heart yearns to join La Cosecha “The Harvest,” a local church. When I meant Pastor Guerra and his family over a year ago my spirit leaped within me. It seemed as if it was an appointed destiny in heaven!
I recently spoke to his daughter Grecia a few days ago and it was like we have a whole family waiting for our arrival. We will not be strangers but long lost family members in Christ finally joining together to work the Kingdom of God together.
Nancy, Alexis, and I will never forget those that have labored with us in getting us here. Your prayers and financial support hasn’t gone un-noticed. If we have forgotten to say thank you to anyone, please forgive us. We continually keep you all in our prayers.
To our Pastors, Jimmy and Marty Squires, to us, you are the greatest. We could have never done it without you two, your wise council, prayers, love, and support. In 1990, God brought us to you as two small babies in Christ.
Here we are today, as our parents in the faith, you sent us out to further the works of Jesus Christ. May we forever make you two proud in what God is doing through our lives and be honorable representative of Abundant Life Church.
We want to extend a special thank you to 4 ministries for your wonderful financial support. Your belief in us is very humbling and makes us wants to shine for you.
Mom and Dad, I am overjoyed that we are going to be able to share this experience together. You all don’t know this, my mother and father just got connected to the worldwide web. They are faithfully monitoring every move their son and his family makes. I love you two so much, words could never describe what you mean to me. I will never forget when mom caught me sneaking into the church next door and turning on the PA system as a little boy. I was shouting and screaming. She said I was either going to be a preacher or a politician! Well mom, you were right!
To my sissy, Coty, and Seth, thank you for coming and seeing us before we left. It was such a wonderful time and I will never forget it. You are all special to us. I truly believe it was a divine appointment that God line up. God used this time to create a stronger bond.
Please keep us in your prayers. We will soon be establishing a brand new household and ministry here in Honduras. As you all know, it’s going to take wisdom, guidance, and financial support to accomplish this.
You Servant in Christ,
