This is volume one, issue five of your correspondent's reports from
Honduras. As usual, I have divided my report into ministry update,
personal update, and prayer requests.
The second half of August has been eventful at Samaritan's Purse. I
traveled with Monica to the Garifuna communities of Travesia, Masca, and Sarawaina. We held a volunteer training conference on leadership and teamwork and had meetings with the community promoters who lead classes for children on sexual health and abstinence
Eddie and his family took Jonathan and I to attend a futbol match
between the city's two rival teams, Marathon and Real Espana. He
successfully converted me to be a loyal supporter of Marathon, the
team that won 1-0. In this country, there is really no middle ground.
You must choose a team. The game was exciting and the fans were
time with Eddie, his wife, and two children. They are blessed.
Pray for the two weekend retreats in September, that the students who
attend would trust and believe in Christ's love for them.
Pray for Monica and the Garifuna Hope project, which faces the
difficulties of heavy-handed government oversight and community
Pray that we interns would be wise in discerning our roles here in our
various projects and know when and how to make suggestions for change.
Well, that's all for now.
(God Bless You in Garifuna)
