Sasha's Flight to Honduras

Sasha's flight to Honduras...Same plane, Same pilot, Same flight... only one day later. Ran off the end of the runway in the fog. 147 on board, 5 dead
Thank You for your prayers

What a day; What a week. But you know when it rains it pours especially in Honduras. Condensed version… So far this week we have had a hurricane, plane crash, our road on the property washed out, part of the foundation washed out on the new building, 40 truck loads and 3 culverts to repair. Had a friend pound on the gate early this morning “I need help were struck around the corner and the truck is about to go into the raging drainage river. So I hopped into the Kia and pulled him out and in so doing so got the kia so stuck a fire truck plus another 4x4 could not pull it out. And someone called the local tv to video tape us for news. I had to call the backhoe working the Children’s Lighthouse problem to drive to the city and lift it out. Tore loose the front bumper and headlight in the process. When it was loose the wheels would not roll due to being packed tight with rocks and mud that needed to be picked out. Finally by 1pm the kia was back on the road….But even so blessing abound. Sasha is here and was not on the ill-faited flight this morning. Over 80 folks came to welcome her in the rain last night and the Ladies ministry cooked for everyone and Ramon preached. The Lighthouse is still going up the metal beams are up for the roof cement floors for the dorms are in. The chicken pox are subsiding and yet we have seen more folks trust the Lord. A youth meeting will be held there tomm for the teens in the 4 ministries we are working. Should be 50+ young folks. Amen! Again Thank you for your prayers! We oft live by them.
