Telephone Update

Pastor Randy called with an update for the body. They have not been anywhere near a computer since Sunday, so he called to let us know how things are going.

Monday (yesterday) was a physically exhausting day preparing to pour concrete, and today is looking to be about the same, but with the Lord's strength, they'll be pouring the concrete today. Please keep that in your prayers!

The team has been working together in an awesome way. The preparation time and the prayer time with CC Greer has been enormously fruitful. Their times of prayer and worship together while in Honduras have been blessed beyond beyond words through the Holy Spirit's ministry. Their fellowship has been sweet, and spiritually, they are walking in victory.

Physically, there are a few prayer needs. Keli, Loq and Michelle have all had stomach problems, so please, please keep their health, and that of the whole team in your prayers.

There is an URGENT prayer need for the full-time missionaries in Honduras. There are a lot of the Lord's servants who have answered the call to minister to the Honduran people. Many of them do not have teams to support them and are exhausted, empty and burnt-out. Imagine trying to do the work of the Lord with no one to help and no one to talk to. They are in desperate need of a filling of the Holy Spirit and the fellowship of the Lord.

With this revelation, the team is going to change their focus for the rest of the trip to one of encouragement. At the leading of the Lord, they may cancel outreaches if they determine they can answer the call to build up the missionaries there. Please, please pray diligently for the full-time missionaries down there that God would give them strength, would restore their joy, and give them life and life more abundantly. Randy asked specifically that we would lift them up from here.

Please, please, continue to pray for the team. The enemy wants to discourage and frustrate and disappoint. God wants us to draw close to Him, and not just the team, but each of us. We can draw close to Him by lifting them up to Him.

  2. "In Christ Alone"
    Words and Music by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

    In Christ alone my hope is found;
    He is my light, my strength, my song;
    This cornerstone, this solid ground,
    Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
    What heights of love, what depths of peace,
    When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
    My comforter, my all in all—
    Here in the love of Christ I stand.

    The verse of this song came to my mind as I pray for strength and encouragement for all of you.

    Romans 15:5-6 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    I am praying that you all stay close to Christ. He is your source of strength!

  3. I have spent my morning time with the LORD, and my heart is breaking for the missionaries in Honduras. How I wish I could be there to hug them and encourage them. The Bible says "in the last days perilous times will come" (2 Tim. 3:1), this morning I spent time in the Book of Hebrews which says we ought to be more and more involved in encouragment as those "days" approach. Then I thought about how Paul started each of his letters with encouragement.

    Romans 1: 8-9 Let me say first of all that wherever I go I hear you being talked about! For your faith in God is becoming known around the world. How I thank God through Jesus Christ for this good report, and for each one of you. God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to the One I serve with all my might.

    That is my prayer for the missionaries and our team in Honduras. That they would know we are so thankful they have become the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is speaking and working through each one of you.

    Psalm 30:10-12 LORD, listen and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper. You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, so that I can sing to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise You forvever.

  4. We are all continuing to pray for strength and endurance for the entire team as you guys continue to do the Lords work. We love you all. We pray that the Lords will be done in every action that you all perform and that the Lord use each and every one of you to his honor and his glory. Love you guys.
