Thursday — Hey Ya’ll… I’m about 12 hours away from going back to Honduras after three years away due to Covid. I’m fortunate to be a part of a ten-person team going back as part of a medical and food mission with a group called “Luke 9:2″… (“And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing.”) It’s great to be a part of this mission team and I hope to share pictures and info about the trip over the next several days. I hope you’ll find the stories interesting and let it encourage you to try something similar with your friends. And, no, you don’t have to go all the way to Honduras to find people to help. This was our calling. We hope you find yours!
Friday — And we’re off! The team of 10 volunteers left Crievewood Baptist Church at 4:30am after a prayer that we’ll connect new people with the Love of Christ… and, that all of the crates of donations made it through customs in Honduras.
Speaking of the crates, they did make it through, but only after team member Jorge Luna assisted Eric in explaining that yes, maybe the paperwork could be better, but please remember we’re here to help! (Which they did, praise the Lord!)
Having made it through the airport unscathed, meaning no one lost any luggage, we loaded onto an old American school bus that was “driven” all the way south to Honduras, where some of the roads are quickly testing its engineering.
But it was a great trip to our home base in Cofradia, complete with a great rainbow to light the way! And the day ended with introductions of our team members to some of the eight doctors, four dentists, and two dental assistants who have answered the call to provide medical care to the poor and needy. Luke 9:2 Ministries, through donations from many people, is the driving force for making this trip happen. We’ll introduce the medical team folks tomorrow when we stage the first of five days of helping everyone we can who comes asking for care.
For tonight, we ended the day with a Birthday party for our Pharmacist, Kelley, age undisclosed! Maybe, we’ll take a run at that tomorrow as well!
