All in a Days Work


The Church group arrived from NY. Loaded up and walked with the children to the bus stop for the ride to Choluteca. 7am Saturday all began to work on the Children’s Lighthouse with a zeal….by 10:00am the 100 degree heat had begun to take its toll. The realization the everything in Honduras is hard work… The Ladies work all day…The men well… they began to wonder why the vultures began to circle above the site. Really they did…. Monday we take away the straw and increase the tally of bricks…the welding starts. Pastor C. went with the men from our ministry up to Colonia and helped baptize 7 and saw 6 trust the Lord. Sounds simple….remember Honduras. They took the 69Datsun and only had to push it up the mountain a few times...(it came back with a bad clutch.) Arrive to a mountain village(bringing all you need no stores, nothing to drink. Meet under the big tree to preach, Assemble the baptistery fill it with water and then make it back down. All in a days work for here. Amen people saved, people baptized and an orphanage going up….the field is white….means the labor is long and hard…Ask a farmer AAmen!

Hello to my brother Mark Morizio (he’s on the team in these pictures)!

It’s about time he broke a sweat. ;-)

Love you, brother!
