As planned, we got back to Honduras Wednesday (4/25) at noon. For me, it had been a year since I’ve been here. At the mission center streams of little kids came from every direction wanting a hug . That afternoon we visited all four of the young adult classes and rejoiced to see old friends and new students as well. The next day the Gathering Hearts employees surprised us with lunch and Nicolas shared that each employee had contributed $15 to buy food and gifts. We felt truly welcomed back home. What a rich blessing!
Later that day Nicolas was able to tell us more about the terrible situation here in December during the election. There were 15 straight days no one could use the roads. Many businesses were burned and the threat of armed violence was constant. We all truly appreciate those that prayed for the ministry and the people here in Honduras during that time and we ask that you continue to pray. The immediate threat of violence has subsided but Honduras remains a troubled country, more in need of Jesus than ever before.
On Thursday we also spent some time in the children’s classes where they sang songs and recited Scriptures. Truly God loves the little children! We had lots of medications, school materials, and other supplies to bring back with us this time and as is often the case, we crammed everything into four suitcases of almost exactly 50 pounds each and made it without any problems. Please pray for us as the ministry is bigger and busier than ever. We need God’s provision, guidance and wisdom as we serve the calling he has placed on our lives.
