Just another day

Just another interesting day in Honduras. Today was Christian’s Birthday. Lisa did it up for him, piñata and all. Smiles abounded.

Finally got some rocks but the truck was so old and underpowered he could not get up the hill to the property. So I said I would pull him up with the Kia.. The laughter, as I hooked up a strap, turned to hootin and hollerin when we crested the top. I actually did it 2x for 2 loads. The second time I thought wow he is much heaver that the first time…then he let out the clutch and started about ½ way up…more hootin. The little Kia that could…
Barry Jr took on the task of putting a gate on the property and He built it from scratch from leftover metal roof truss parts. After a few fit and trials he got it hung and working today.
As of today the Roof for the Children’s Lighthouse dorm is on. Tomorrow time to restart the kitchen side. Our crew has been cut from 15 to 3 so progress will be slower but more economical watching the pennies.

Church services were great. They voted to start building. We only have about 10% of the needed funds...but they feel if we start building for the LORD, the LORD will provide. And we will not take on any debt. Several have voluteered to help build. Amen! Walking by faith.
I have been giving Carlos more pulpit time. He has really begun to preach with power, authority, conviction and a broken heart. And it comes across. The Bible Institute is paying off. Pray the LORD opens his eyes and puts a burning in his bones that can only be quenched by preaching and pastoring.


Unworthy Servant to a Worthy Saviour,
Barry
