Honduras Mission Update 4

Hello everyone.

We had another wonderful day in Honduras. Weather was much milder (probably only in high 80s) and there was a breeze every now and then.

We started out our morning, as is the custom, with devotions. Leslie read from Joshua 2 with the message that individual faith can make us strong and do things we may otherwise not be able to do and sometimes those acts make a powerful difference. We hope that the children’s faith will grow and they too may someday make a powerful difference in their community or possibly country. Our morning devotionals lasted longer than normal as the topic generated a healthy dialog amongst all of us.

Soon after, we were split up with the group from Washington State headed over to the Village to continue their work (with great success). They believe they are about 75% of the way to making the system operational. This is terrific news and the result of a lot of back breaking work in very hot weather. They are to be commended.

13The others left early to spend the day at school. Each of us served as teachers aids in different classrooms. It is amazing to see the progress all of the students are making. The photos shows a standard classroom. All students are required to speak English in the classroom. You can tell the difference this has made not only in their general classwork but also in their conversational English with our team.

12Coming home after an exhausting day in the classroom, we got the opportunity to ride with the students in the school bus. What a treat. See attached picture of the madhouse. 3-4 students per seat and about 100 people on the bus but order was maintained and fun was had by all.

When we arrived back at the hotel we were met by the Director of the Leadership Center and his family who had come down from the mountains of Honduras to meet with us and visit. We all had a delicious meal at a local restaurant before turning in for the night with high expectations for another action packed day tomorrow.

Please keep the children and our team in your prayers.

Good night all!
