More from Honduras...

My son, Zach, and my friends are still in Honduras...
They will be home Tuesday...
but tonight will be their last night there.
Please continue to pray for a safe return!

--------------------------------------------

On day 1, they gave gifts


Some of gifts confused the children...
but made them laugh!



Others amazed them...


A few days later, the mission team took the kids,
from the orphanage, to the water park.


They had fun...


They played...


They got very wet....


They even relaxed...



The kids at the orphanage are well taken care of...



and most are fairly healthy...

But the next day...
they saw other kids who are not...


because they live here...

In "neighborhoods" like these...


where they make their homes...


and walk on streets of glass...
(look closely...there's glass everywhere!)



They have their meals delivered
every day...right on time....


which they also dig for...
among the feces of their animals...


My friend, Jana, said pictures could NOT
describe the devastation they saw...


I cannot imagine....


But I'm pretty sure he can...



And
I
can
bet
he's
NOT
coming
home
the
same!!!

No, he will not come home the same. My son has been to Nicaragua twice in the past four months and it is life changing. In fact, all the boys grew so much with each mission trip they went on...praying for safe travels and many memories to share.

WOW sister...what a life changing trip for your son! I will be praying that the Holy Spirit does a powerful work in and through him and that all the days of his life he will bring glory to God.

I loved your cocoon comment on my blog...I am learning to be content in that tight, uncomfortable cocoon...knowing that God is at work!

Bless you sister!!!!

GG,
Thank you very much for stopping by my page and leaving a compliment and the blessing of prayer. I read some of your blog and immediately thought about a passage of scripture in Isaiah 54 "...All your children will have God for their teacher— what a mentor for your children!" We cannot offer our children a greater gift! Keep up the good work!

Who am I Lord?

1 Chronicles 17:16 Then  King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said: "Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you...
