a view as he hiked
This young girl hiked with them and carried her small child the whole way.

We are thankful for the love and growth that this group is showing by visiting and reaching out to others in their community. They also made visits in the villages of Porto Suelo and Muyurco.
On Saturday we were in the village of Lagunetas for Bible study. It was our first one to do there in a while. We were excited about getting it back going! We were quite surprised to get there and find 35 kids waiting on us. In the past I have only had about 10-15 on a regular basis. Oh how it thrilled our hearts to see so many new smiling faces! David taught a Bible story and I did some music. We then all walked down to the soccer field and played some games. We used some balloons and a rope from our car and it ended up being a really fun time.

I loves all the smiles!
On Sunday morning we attended church as a family in Chiquimula. We do not get to do this often so we always enjoy it when we do. I think we go more for the boys than ourselves. I love for them to be in a kids class and sing, learn, and play. This week they learned about prayer and the fact that you can pray anywhere and at any time. Cruz could not wait to get in the car and tell us all about it. He finished up by telling us that he told his teacher "bad guys don't pray because they don't love God". Oh my. I'm just hoping that she didn't understand his Spanish, ha.
The kids getting ready to share with the congregation what they learned.
Cruz's card says "thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven". This was part of their presentation.
We are thankful for the many opportunities we had last week to visit and share the gospel. We are praying that a great harvest will come from the work that is being done here. Would you partner with us in prayer? What a great impact you could have on the work here simply by praying. And Cruz would remind you - anywhere and at any time.
