This morning we are packed and ready to travel to Talanga. We spent yesterday here at the hotel while Bro. Geinrre was having the van repaired. Last night we returned to have service with Sis. Clara. It began to rain as we drove up the mountain, and and when we arrived, the electricity was out. This made the congregation smaller, but the girls were able to experience having church service by candlelight! These people listen so well, and you can tell that their pastor taught them well. We felt so bad that we missed service on Sunday night due to the accident, especially after we heard that the church had been full waiting for us. Today we will travel to Tegucigalpa, and then on to Talanga and our hotel. Tomorrow morning is the Visa appointment for Bro. Rigo. Please pray that the Lord.will give us favor as we go. We really desire for him to come to Roanoke for training. Thank you all for your prayers.
We arrived safely in San Pedro Sula yesterday and we were on our way after as smooth immigration and customs stop. After checking into the hotel and having lunch, we went to have service with Sis. Clara. During an hour break between services, we drove to the nearest gas station for some drinks. And then the fun began! Coming back to the church, we were sideswiped by a motorcycle who took the curve in our lane. Thankfully he was not seriously injured, but he did at least break his ankle. Sis. Karla's nurses training paid off as she was able to tend to him until help came. Here it is not as simple as calling the police and leaving after the paperwork.is.completed. it was an adventure, to.say the least, and it looks we will have to pay for the van to be repaired. Unfortunately we had to miss the evening service, but we will be going there tonight after.the van is repaired. Note to Bro. Finnicum : don't teach about the baptism.of.fire again tonight! Thankful that we are all safe, and praying for God's will to be done in all things.
Arrived safely in Atlanta! Next stop: San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Today we are preparing to leave for our 12th trip to the country of Honduras. We go with a thankful and hopeful heart; for what God has already done, and for what He is about to do. We go with invitation letters for 3 more people to be able to come to the U.S. to experience the Body of Christ. We go with special hopefulness for Bro. Rigo, that his embassy visit on August 1st will be successful, and that he will be able to travel home with us this trip. Every trip fills us with great expectation, and we covet your prayers as we fly out on Sunday morning. Abigail and Beth Hummel will travel with us, and Sarah Hummel will join us for the 2nd week. What a blessing it is to be able to take godly young people with us who represent our Lord, our church, and our message in such a great way. Oh be glad and rejoice, for the Lord will do great things!
