Irons in the fire... but need fuel for the fire.Many things are already happening this year. Sunday we had our kids ministering in 3 churches. Jenny actually taught children in 3 different church ministry locations this week. Lisa made up a craft coloring book for small gift bags with tracts, candy, crayons and a token gift. In her resourcefulness was able to make enough to give something to the kids in 7 of our churches. Alberto, Jenny and Japheth and all the gifts bags headed up the hour plus ride up the rough mountain road on a motorcycle( 3 people and supplies) to teach and distribute the coloring books gifts. And make it back to the Lighthouse to teach again. Julie is heading off for the University Tuesday of this week. She will leave a big hole to fill in many ways. She has shown herself faithful and the LORD is rewarding. To explain Julie's heart. See what she opts to do to help the day before leaving for college. She knows we have an inspection from the gov the day after she leaves. Of her own will she just came in my office and got the cleaning supplies to clean all 10 toilets in our children's home. Then asks if she can go to help the city church in their VBS in the afternoon after the house is cleaned.... yeah a big hole to fill. She has been like one of David's mighty men to the family and ministry for a long time.Last week she sat in the sun all week selling our great dane puppies. Why does a missionary sell great dane puppies? For money to send a national preacher to Cuba to witness to 2 Generals, street preach and prepare the way to distribute bibles to every Cuban soldier. Wanting to send 15,000 bibles and tracts, plant a church and maybe military ministry. 3000 bibles are beginning their move from the USA this week. Our Nicaraguan preacher now has the funds in hand to make the first trip.Was talking to a well drilling ministry here and they are willing to drill maybe 3 wells for us in churches. The 1st one in April. Amen.Still need more materials for the church construction on the border and deliver what we have... dont have enough vehicles running to be everywhere so has to wait till vbs is over... the old kia broke the rack n pinion and someone stole the battery. $1000 just in those 2 parts. Our preachers saw 4 trust the Lord in churches this Sunday. School is starting up soon and our bible institute students will be teaching again in public schools. And our Lighthouse school will begins soon as well. It has been 5 years on our current papers so now time to renew all our ministry and personal papers here. Always a great expense in time and money. Need prayer and provision on many fronts. Thank you for every remembrance.
Our school year ended and is almost ready to start up again. Lisa and Julie are getting next school year ready while closing this one. Been raining hard as of late. This Sunday taking church folks home in the city during a storm the kia took an unexpected muddy dive in a 3 foot deep flooded area of the paved road. It has a 5ft working snorkel kit and a quick switch to 4wd kept us going. But now it needs a deep cleaning and lubricant change in the transfer case, trans, differentials ect. Wee. Managed to weld the frame on the old kia back together for the 18th time and put tires on it. This will allow Alberto and Jenny to visit churches for me and do some construction oversight. Hoping to break ground and do a foundation for a church building near the border. They will also help this month for our national "Children's day". Currently rebuilding some of our old vbs equipment to do activities. Alberto was asked by one of our pastors to do a lesson in a house outreach. He did fine. They also dedicated their new baby to the Lord promising to raise him for Christ. Amen. We tend to hold tight to the sweet moments in ministry because if not the heartaches can be overwhelming. In ministry one must guard their heart, not let it harden, nor break and fail. Found out two things this week about kids that used to be with us. One had left in rebellion years ago and called begging for help to fix the mess they had made of their life. The second even more tragic. A young boy who was removed against our recommendation and placed with family, is now one of the half crazed young men here wondering the streets sniffing glue and paint. Children's ministry is often like being a lifeguard on a busy shark infested beach, who is required to work with both hands tied behind their back, and tape on their mouth...heartbreaking. (btw the photo is not the same young man. I just took the photo earlier the same day I heard the news). Our support is always a surprise every month. By the time the 3rd and 4th week of the month come around money is tight. Yet God always provides, 10 years of providing. I received a surprise email from an old school friend who used to babysit me 40 years ago. We have had very little contact and nothing for 39yrs till they had a school reunion. The Lord laid on her heart a love offering. The second was an out of work Honduran business man. He texted me and said he had something for me... humbling. Those 2 allowed us to buy food and finish the month once again... The LORD proves through those close enough to Him to hear His desires.... after a decade of this, I am in as much awe of God monthly as one seeing the grand canyon for the first time. Thank you to each one of our ministering saints for listening to the heart of God.
