The Shepherdess Speaks...

 Joy of the journey
 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Mark 10:13-15

Dangerous Journey

  Hope and encouragement comes to Honduras

In answer to the Macedonia call, “Come and help us,” my husband, (a pastor) and another minister acting as translator, arrived in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, known as the ‘murder capitol of the world.’ I didn’t realize how dangerous this endeavor was until I began to read about the rival gang crimes and drug related murders that are a daily occurrence in this part of the world. The two ministers had to travel this narrow road in order to minister to the Church of God in that community. This was a precarious journey over hazardous conditions where gang activity and gun fights are a daily occurrence.

Welcome brothers!

Primitive transportation

The children

Rental car in font of church building. They had to roll the tinted windows down so they wouldn't be suspected as affiliated with a gang. It was quite warm with no air conditioning. The congregation had decorated the church with welcome sing, flowers and backdrop of curtains. We had a warm welcome.

God bless you and keep you in His love and care!
