Honduras Mission Trip 2008
Wednesday was a good day in Honduras. We started out early, as usual, with breakfast and worship. From there we split up with Angie and her group continuing to minister to the young people of Honduras. She has had a great turnout and quite a few have stood up and accepted the Lord as their Savior. Jeff and Nancy keep teaching the local people how to eat better and serve the Lord through their health. On Wednesday the medical team treated the local members of the Siguatepeque Seventh-day Adventist church in the morning and then we ministered to the members of the Talube church members. It was interesting to note that the health of church member was much better on average than the other citizens of Honduras. Healthy living does make a difference. You notice in one of the pictures you see a large rectangular cement structure with a fire beneath it. We stopped along the road that afternoon because we wanted to see how the locals made sugar out of sugar cane. Just ask one of the group to explain this fascinating and almost primitive process. A few days ago I referred to a miracle. Well, what happened is the first day we dispensed most of the medicine we had brought with us. We were in a little spot because we had 3 more days of seeing patients. Pastor Cerna started making phone calls to the local pharmacies and we found out that it would take about $5000.00 USD for the medication we required. Immediately we said that we could not afford that, but in the conversation it was found out that we are a religious group doing a medical missionary trip. The wholesale pharmacist said well let me see what i can do. On Tuesday we started again on seeing patients and giving out medicine, what we had on tuesday was enough but we were about out by the end of the day. That evening a couple showed up at our hotel and hand delivered enough medicine to last the rest of the week and more FREE of Charge. There only stipulation was that we hold evangelistic meetings along with our medical ministry. Of course we have Alfredo preaching every night trying to win souls to Christ. This whole trip we have seen God lead us. it is amazing that we have dispensed around $5000.00 worth of medicine and very little of that came out of our pockets. There are so many lessons to be learned from this trip, but for me, God has control of everything that goes on in this world. He will NOT let his people down. He will NOT let you down. We are praying for the project and the people of Bentonville Seventh-Day Adventist Church. Remember He Is With You. God Bless.
