Partnerships and village initiatives are going strong.
In San Roque we now have an outreach from the Templo Evangelical Emanuel, our home church. This includes small meetings in homes as well as a joint meeting in the community center. Pastor Nelson Batista and his wife Juliza have been working tirelessly in the discipleship programs in the villages around the Mission center.
One great blessing of the discipleship program, is a young girl named Lesbe who accepted Christ. Like many young girls in Honduras Lesbe had been unable to attend school for years in order to stay home and take care of her mother’s younger children. In addition education in Honduras is expensive, often times costing well more than the average family is able to afford. In Lesbe’s case she was given a scholarship to the private school and has begun to thrive. Her academic scores are rising, she attends church, and through the discipleship program she found Christ.
All this from one scholarship!
This last month, the village women made tacos to help support the church. What a great exercise in giving of these women who are so in need themselves, giving of what they have!
