Honduras Dia de Niños 2014 (Children's Day)


This "week" is national children's day for us. Churches, schools,  government do activities. For most it is a day. but we cannot be all places at once so it takes a week. Sunday was our church in the city and the Lighthouse church. Next week 2 more and friday the gov authorities are bringing kids to the lighthouse to celebrate. Preaching often to parents who might not darken the doors of a church is a bonus. We handed out more than 200 gift joy bags from Directline ministries again. Lisa has a way of making them stretch. They give us x number... we get y and z too.. (we always need many more than they can send). Shooting off the candy cannon and still getting mileage out of the bounce house we aquired over a decade ago. I do not think it would not be an exageration to say we have had more than 100,000 kids jump ‌in it. Both in inner cities in the USA and mountain tops in Honduras.. I think we have dragged it over 100,000 miles too.(my back and knees say a million.. but they lie) Been a wonderful ministry tool over the years. Doesnt every missionary have one? We started new classes at the Lighthhouse church. One of our ladies began to help the childrens class and our bible students preached and taught in the adults and new youth class. Even the rain did not dampen the spirit. 7am to 7pm picking up dropping off all day working the background making sure all have what they need and all are where they need to be... Side note for those that know, Jenny has been a regular in church now for a couple of months. Been a blessing after a long heartache. Had another strange thing happen too but will be able to explain it better later...maybe...
