Faith and Obedience

Last night we had a time of devotion with the Lee University students who have been here serving the medical needs of the community for the past 2 weeks. We talked a little bit about our internship program at HHGlobal and our 2 summer interns Chad and Heather Jo, AKA Chepa, shared a little bit about how they came to be in Honduras.

They shared about obedience and faith. It was so encouraging to hear those words come from the youngest members of the meeting. Chepa talked about how she came to Honduras following God's call on her life, and Chad shared about the faith that it took to get him back for his second tour of duty this summer. In all of this I see God's faithfulness. I see His hand for sure...shaping the young lives around me. I pray for the courage to be obedient to Him. I pray that I have faith to trust in Him...not only for my provision...but for that of my new family.

I am learning so much about God's love for us though my relationship with Mark. I think I will learn a lot more as the months turn into years...but right now, I am learning that it is a bit more difficult to trust God with those that are closest to you. For some reason, I can trust Him without a second thought when it comes to my well being or provision, but it is more difficult now that there are 2 of us.

Lord, please help me to trust you, no matter how big my family becomes. Give me the faith I need to continue to serve you. When I say the words "I trust you" please make them true. I stand on your word, and I believe in your promises.

The Road Less Traveled

We are burning up the trail to Los Limpios this week! This is one of our favorite places to go. It is about an hour and a half into the jungle, and the children there are just beautiful. We took the education team from Jubilee out there yesterday to teach the kids the hygiene program and share the Word with them. They were so receptive!

We are going back today...to the same village. We are walking the road again...turning it from a road less traveled into a road of hope! Today we are going to paint the kindergarten "classroom" and make some repairs to the existing structure. The kids meet on the back porch of the building, right next to the pile of sand and broken blocks that will one day be their classroom.

We have never gone back to a village 2 days in a row. I can't wait to see their faces as we walk in!!

This is going to be so fun.
