God is so AMAZING!!! Today was an amazing day. If you haven’t already figured it out, I love to use the word amazing a lot, but it is perfect to describe Honduras. Today everyone woke up between 6:45am and 7:30. For breakfast we had pancakes, fruit and orange juice. It was really good. After breakfast we had devo at the rock looking over the mountains, it was beautiful. Joe brought us the lesson this morning, and basically he just wanted to say that God is good all the time and all the time God is good!!
Once devo was over we loaded the buses and headed out to San Miguel, a small community in Teguc. There we divided into two teams, the soccer boys and the rest of the group. The soccer boys headed out first. Their task was to tear down a house so a better one could be built. From what I heard they had a great time building the house. They were also surprised to find out they were playing tonight at Baxter. Surprise boys!! So they headed out earlier then the rest of the crew. At the other site a few people were busy cutting through a mountain so we could build the house, while others started the half of it that was already leveled. There were also people playing with the children to keep them out of the way of the workers. Everyone worked really hard today. Tomorrow a group will go back to this site to finish the other half of the house.
Earlier I mentioned that Joe talked about God being good, well it couldn’t have been a better day to say this. Our groups left San Miguel just as the heavens opened up. I mean it was perfect timing. So we made our way back up the mountain for super. Tonight we had beef tips, chips, salsa, and beans. It was, yes you guessed it, AMAZING!! As we were eating the soccer boys were playing. They, unfortunately did not win today, but I’m sure they had a great time. They got back just in time for devo, ok yeah of course we would have waited on them before we began, but they made it back at the scheduled time for devo. Tonight AB talked to us. He talked about how people put God it a box. He said that God is huge and shouldn’t be put in a box. We should serve Him in everything we do, do not limit ourselves. He had some very encouraging words.
After devo we all said our good nights. The soccer boys, however, stayed up to have pizza since they missed super. After they finish I’m sure they will go to bed, well I hope they will. Thanks so much for keeping up with our progress. Please continue to pray for us and to pray for good weather. It is very important that the rain holds off for couple of days so we can finish these houses. God Bless you all!!
