Whew...

OK, so that week went by in a blink! So much is going on here that time seems to evaporate. I will attempt to catch you up on what's been going on in my world...

Current events: Honduras is trying to navigate through a sticky political time right now. It seems that the current President likes his job so much that he wants to have it for his whole life. Today he is holding a controversial, door-to-door election to amend the constitution and change the 4 year limit on presidential terms. I am not a political buff any more, but that doesn't sound right to me. Honduras has only been a democracy for 8 presidential terms and now there is a potential threat to return the country to a socialist state. If you are burdened for prayer on this subject, please pray for this country...pray for wisdom in government officials, good judgment for the officials and the people and a spirit of peace to cover this whole situation.

Ministry Life: We said our good byes to the team from Lee University, and it was sad to see them go. They were such a fun filled group and we got so used to having them around. I hope that they made it home safely and that they will never forget their time in Honduras. I hope they are ruined for the mission field and that they have a different perspective of how people live outside of the USA.

We welcomed a new team from Alabama last night and we are looking forward to a 3 fold blitz of the area this week. Jubilee Church has bought an incredible team of medical personnel, construction workers and an education team to help us reach the schools in the area. I can't wait to get this party started!

Personal Life: I am learning to trust, trust, trust everything about God. Trust in His timing, His plans, His strength, His faithfulness...the list goes on and on. I see miracles every week. Some of them are radical healings that change people's lives forever and open their hearts to salvation. Some of them are practical miracles...like getting 30 boxes of food inside of a Nissan Extera. The miracle I am experiencing this week is a personal miracle...strength, supernatural strength.

There is no way that any of the HHIM team should still be standing. We are half-way through our season, with 5 teams behind us and 5 teams in front of us. Physically we are tired and worn out, spiritually we are being tested and tried...but God is ever faithful and He is filling us with hope and strength and faith like never before. We are being given fresh oil and new wine with every incoming team. God is showering us with His love and we are making an impact on this community for His glory. He is taking our 5-loaves and feeding thousands! He is stretching our time, giving us supernatural rest, and filling in the gaps for us where we fall short.

Praise Him!

Please continue to pray for us. Lift us up and keep us in your hearts and minds. There is a God in Israel and He does hear our prayers! Amazing!

thanks for posting this.... everythime I've been prompted to pray for y'all for the last two weeks all I could pray for was supernatural strength. I was almost to the point of thinking that I was just making it up. I would start to pray for something else for y'all, but I always ended up praying for strength again. Now I know why...lol. I will continue to pray for y'all. Love you!
