Honduras 2023 | Update #2

July 10, 2023

By Lee Stanton

Good evening family, friends, and prayer team.  

Day two started with us gathering and enjoying a true authentic Honduran breakfast (yum), followed with a daily devotional and a chance to take some time to pray for one another as a few of us were starting to feel a bit under the weather.  

After that we piled in the bus, trekked across town to meet with Pastor Nelson’s church community and were able to hear a beautiful story by Pastor Nelson on how God worked through five sisters in planting their church.  This followed with a tour of the grounds and a lesson in tortilla making.  

Next came the work, some began digging ditches to run water lines to the houses on the property, while others painted one of the recently completed homes.  Others were a part of ministering to the amazing kids in the community by playing, laughing and taking time to have a nail painting party. The day was also filled with heat exhaustion, manual labor, warm bottled water and a few encounters of fire ants, but in all that, you could see how God was moving. He blessed us with the loving hospitality of the Honduran people, the love and support for one another in our group and especially the love from the children there.   

We finished our day at Pastor Arqui’s church for dinner where his wife Minda and a few other church members provided us with their amazing baleadas (so good)! We were all able to shake off the exhaustion, come together, laugh, eat some amazing food, and be surrounded by some truly amazing people.  We concluded with a bus ride back to our hotel, a fresh shower, and time to regroup and share our “happies & crappies” of the day.  Our highlight of the day was the testimony of how truly powerful our God is, He can take 16 people place them in an uncomfortable environment and surround them in God’s love.

Day 3 starts early with a trip back to Pastor Nelson’s church to finish a few projects followed by outreach. Thank you to everyone who is praying for us; continue to look for more details of our trip tomorrow.

God bless.
