Today was a time of recreation before heading back to FGBI. First Bro. Scott fired up the airplane and let us take rides. It was awesome! Some parts felt like a roller coaster, but it was a cool sensation. Then we made lunch and packed it up to go to the lake. We drove up a very large mountain before arriving at a beautiful area with a lake. We sat up for volleyball, croquet, and corn hole. After eating we all had fun playing and fellowshipping. While we were there some horses came running in, the scenery was so beautiful! Then we loaded up before dark and headed back to the Sumners. We had supper and a cake to celebrate Ruth Sumner's early birthday. Then we had just a little time to pack and prepare to leave. It was a fun relaxing day and a nice finish to the trip!
Today started extremely early with more military services. This time we were not split up but were able to go as a whole. There was a great response in the worship, the preaching, and the altar calls. I thoroughly enjoyed being at one base in particular where they were learning English. We did the service in English and then at the end we were able to talk with them. Charity and I talked to two ladies for the bulk of the time. We both asked each other questions and had good fellowship. We got a picture together and exchanged some contact information.
After eating breakfast we went out so the guys could put a new roof on a ladies house. After eating and freshening up for church we had the last night of our kid's crusade. It was about commitment and staying faithful to the call of God. Throughout the crusade we had a competition going on for girls against boys. They would get different points for games and memorizing their memory verse and for the offering. If the boys won, then Ruth Sumner got a pie in the face and if the girls won then Jeff got a pie in the face. Of course the girls won and we shouted the victory. Jeff pulled a quick one and after he got a pie in the face he got Ruth too! The kids loved it.
We had a nice brunch and then some croquet and corn hole outside. Of course I got too much sun but it was nice to have some down time. Then it rained and there was the brightest rainbow I had ever seen! So thankful we can stand upon God's promises!
Today starts the kid’s crusade!!!! Our first one started on the Sunday morning service. The adults separated for their classes so we had a captive audience of children! The theme for the service was salvation. We had games and skits surrounding the salvation message. Jacob Hurst gave the altar call along with Bro. Alan Sumner and several children raised their hands to be saved and came to the front to pray.
Today we were privileged to do a Saturday school service at a public school. The kids responded well and there was a huge thanks from the authority for coming. We then went on to do the soup kitchen and other Saturday schools. We served hot dogs with cabbage and a certain sauce. The skit we did was on Moses, the kids loved our dramatized version!
We started out going to do a service with the police in Danli. The elder Bro. And Sis. Sumner went, as well. They said this was the 25th year they had been doing that service. Bro. Sumner led the song service. Charity and Jacob testified, then Bro. Pahlman preached. His messaged talked about the love of God and the price paid on Calvary for each of them. They all had to stand during service so we did our best to keep it short.
Today was our day to return back to Danli from busy week. We were able to take it easy and eat breakfast at Denny's. Then we went to the mall until it was time to pick up Bro. Pahlman from the airport.
We had more military services that were amazing! There were some of the best responses during this time. After the first service with the Cobras and Tigers they asked us to stay for a Honduran breakfast consisting of eggs, beans, avocado, cheese, and tortillas.
