Gary speaking at outdoor meeting in Campana

This past week we spent a lot of time in church meetings.  There were 3 outdoor revival meetings; one church members meeting; and a fast and pray service on Sunday. The average time for a church meeting here in Honduras is 3 hours.  That being the case, we spent 15 hours in church last week.  Our church attendance is growing, and we praise the Lord for that.  I have gotten a little more active in addressing groups in the Campana area.  Saturday night I shared briefly at the local pastor’s convention in Campana, and Wednesday night I gave the message at church.  I also meet with the carpentry class twice a week.  Thursday morning (4/11) Cheryl had physical therapy in San Pedro; and she had the women’s service in the church tonight. She spoke on bearing one another’s burdens. This is especially focused to the village women’s ministry leaders.…Yesterday afternoon our children’s group presented an Easter presentation, costumes, script, and all.   There were about 20 children involved.   The Jesus Passion film was shown for all classes of  older students. We had three showings to accommodate the schedules and capacity of the conference center.  It had quite an impact. More than several students accepted Christ. Honduras shuts down for Holy Week (Semana Santa). All stores, businesses and schools closed as of noon today.  Our church, Templo Evangelico Emanuel, will also show the Passion on Thursday afternoon with special services Friday and Sunday.    Christ Presbyterian Church from Tulsa will arrive the end of this month, we so look forward to them coming and pray that God will bless their time here.
