Clinic in El Costano

The whole gang 6 people piled into the Williams Mobile...needless to say we were crammed in the Honduran style, and headed over to meet Pastor David and Candy Beebe. They are Baptist Pastors from Colorado who are staying in a small town called El Costano, about 3 hours away from Rio Viejo. They are spending 6 months cleaning and organizing a huge medical clinic/dormatory to prepare it for patients and visiting teams. 

I met Pastor David at HPC a two weeks before I left for Honduras. It was at a Highland service and I was receiving church wide prayer for the trip. He happened to be visiting for that particular service, isn't God so cool? He came up to me afterward and told me about the project in Honduras. I filled him in a little about Dr. Martin and so we decided to get together and see if we could partner somehow. It seems Pastor David has a clinic with no doctor and we happen to have a traveling doctor. What a match!

Candy is a Public Health Nurse and is going to be starting an outpatient clinic there soon. Please keep her in your prayers as she prepares to open the clinic doors. Her and Pastor David have such great hearts and I can't wait to see them again. We are hoping that they will be able to come to Rio Viejo and see the hospital/clinic soon.

I just love the soverignty of God. It amazes me how He brings people together at just the right time, for His purpose and His glory. There is so much security in that...we don't have to manipulate, we don't have to force doors open...we just have to be in His will and what He wills will happen.

Isn't it something...when we take matters into our own hands...we take them out of God's.

I am so happy to hear from you :)

Love you lots!
