Goodbyes are so hard...we left Honduras today. So thankful for all that we saw the Lord do for His people and thankful that we as a team could be a part of it all. I know we all wish it could have lasted longer but it is comforting to know that I'll be back home soon.
We had a blast today! We got up and had the famous "Egg McSumner's" (move over
Our last Wednesday...we were so excited to get to go to the Academies again! We did the Mephibosheth skit at both the military and police academies. At first, I felt strange doing a kids skit in front of a bunch of future officers, but they all seemed to enjoy it so much. The Spirit of the Lord came by in all our services today and it was awesome to see the Lord dealing with hearts and to hear them pray for salvation is wonderful. We got to eat at the Meat Place one last time...*sniff*... (just a reminder, ya'll-the chicken is bomb!) :)
Today we went to the kitchen and cleaned, sanded and painted the tables. I don't believe anyone escaped without getting a little bit of paint on them, and several ended up going to church with paint still on them.
Ashton preached and his message was just what our young people needed to hear. He encouraged them to awaken out of sleep and to be willing to stand in the gap. I was so encouraged to see many of our young people, even some of the younger children getting in and really seeking after the Lord.
The Kid's Campaign ended this morning with the salvation of our pirates. We also had a blast doing some of the funny skits, such as the bean skit, which the kids and all our family loved! The adults and youth were together for the lesson with Bro. Pahlman and we could hear them praying and getting blessed all the way inside where we were.
Today was the busiest day of this weekend. We began by leaving the property after a quick bite of breakfast. We headed to the 110th Brigade for a special service with children from the Danli area. We acted out the story of Mephibosheth and the children loved it! For a big group of kids who are not normally in any kind of church services, they behaved very well and paid very good attention to the lesson. Afterwards, a few of us attended the burial of a young girl who had died. We then headed to the kitchen and were there to give the story and hand out food, as well as clean up. We also had a little bit of time to play with the kids and had a lot of fun.
We left the house this morning bright and early and headed into Danli for service with the police. We all sang and a couple of us testified and after that, Ashton preached.
Today has been a great day! We began with a service with the Cobra police and especially felt the presence of God during the altar call. I could hear several Cobras crying and sniffing during the prayer--it touched my heart so much. We also had good services with the cadets at the military and police academies. We ended the day with a wonderful meal at the meat place. I can't believe busy week will be over tomorrow!
Today has been a wonderful day, full of blessings in little things, like perfect weather, and huge answered prayers, like seeing multiple people praying for salvation in all four of today's services. At every service today we felt the Lord come by and deal with soldiers' and police's hearts, but our last service of the day sticks out the most in my mind. At least 300 navy personnel and recruits were in service with us on Tiger Island. Through the preaching of His Word, God was letting them know that He was seeking them to save them. A majority of them prayed for salvation! God is answering so many prayers already, and it's only been the first day of services! To God be all the glory for what He will do!
