Thanks Giving take 2

Lisa planned to do a nice dinner for the ladies ministry Saturday. Kinda thanksgiving style. A meal of compromise, no turkey just a big chicken, as formal as you can get with plastic plates in a carport. The girls helped, Julie was like Lisa’s third hand all day. Lisa taught how to make edible cookie plates and served sweets on them. A salad, which Lisa found most of the ladies had never eaten, and needed to be taught how to eat it. Beans and rice are what many eat here every day of their lives. The ladies prayed and read thanksgiving scriptures Then shared the things they are thankful for. At meal time, Alba and Jenny prepped and served the food. Julie kept every glass full, Nancy watched the babies, Iris did devotions with our children in the house.(we ate leftovers mmm) The Ladies did not want to go home, though many saved most of their meal to take home to family.

Earlier in the day I had the boys ministry out teaching. They are full of zeal without brains and easily distracted…just like boys in America. “Why cant I chase the iguana under the 8000lbs steel box teetering on a cheap Chinese bumper jack?” I teased them with “Your disposable, your mom can make more boys, go ahead”…They got the message. We finally managed to move the container and raised it up in preparation to moving it to the Lighthouse property for storage. Carlos and the men went to Colonia, preached and brought corn for some hurting families.In all another busy day here in Honduras but one that takes no effort falling asleep at night…he give his beloved sleep amen!
Unworthy servant to a Worthy Saviour,
