Our time in Honduras was incredible! We flew in on the 12th of February and spent our first five days at the headquarters of Mercy International in Yamaranguila, a small town in the mountains of Honduras. While there, we were able to play with the local kids at the town park and share a few testimonies of how God’s love has completely changed our lives. We also spent a day at an orphanage. While we were there, we helped them dig a trench for electrical wire that will power a new house for more girls.
On Friday the 16th, we hiked further up into the mountains to reach remote villages. We stayed up there until the 24th. While in the Opolaca Mountains, our students gave a seminar on “Serving in the Community and Church.” After the seminar, we had a work project collecting stones from a river bed so that the locals could begin building a retaining wall to keep erosion at a minimum around the church. After that, we helped level the ground where they are going to pour a porch floor and put in some bathrooms for a church being built in Santa Maria. We also dug out the side of the mountain to create more room for future projects.
On Friday, February 23rd, we concluded our time in Santa Maria by leading the inaugural church service where our students shared testimonies and preached. There was a fantastic turn out, and God moved powerfully in the service! We were honored and thankful to be part of what God is doing in this region of the world!
