The Waters Asswaged

I have not had internet access time for a while. And when I have it has been much shortened. We weathered the storms just fine. The floods waters have assuaged and many prayers heard. Many here thought it would flood severely but that was not to happen. The week since has had some blessings. Missionary Sam Hodges visited this afternoon with a group of college kids from PCC. They sang. preached and visited the children at the Lighthouse. I believe many hearts were touched on both sides and blessing abounded. Each of our children adopted some PCC students when they arrived and wore some of them out with attention (welcome to my world). The power went out during church 2 times, once while the PCC group was singing and once during preaching. Both times they continued like pros without missing a beat. A young man from Peru preached a great message on faith of a child. The girls finished in the dark and we got headlights shining for the preaching. The lights did come back on and our church did a small fellowship snack afterwards. The rain let up enough we even got some grass cut today. Still have so many prayer request and needs to lift to the LORD. If I listed all they would be long. Still pray for health and strength for the family and finances are the two largest. We have a church coming down to help with bedding for the kids. Most of the have slept of the floor for most of the last year and a half. Still need to hook up our electric properly and must run 500 feet of line and 2 poles to meet with the requirements of the electric company. We need to completely move out of the house in the city but that would leave us without communication to the states. Currently the only option is a satellite internet hookup but that is way beyond or reach right now. Need to start a school soon. 3 children will out of the 6th grade in Feb and no longer by eligible for public schooling. (It is all private after 6th grade). The property is ready to house more children but we struggle to feed what we have now. Every week is a prayer for funds to come in to buy food and water. I can relate to George Muller on so many levels since coming to Honduras.
unworthy servant to a Worthy Saviour,
