Friday: Last Day at the Coast

We’ve had a great week. We have been to nine different villages and two schools presenting the gospel and sharing the love of Christ. Our lives have been changed by the people we have met and shared with. Our hearts will carry the memories and our souls the scars, etched into the depth of an eternity.

Today’s journey brought us to San Antonio, a village near Piedra Partida, where we continued going door to door sharing testimonies and the gospel.

Many women of the church at San Antonio were fasting and praying, and in our very home a teenager girl surrendered her life to Christ.

As we made our way to other houses we found these men who were drying corn on black plastic and sifting out the pieces of cob. They looked extremely hot so we took them bottled water and had the opportunity to share Christ with them.

In another visit, we shared with an old man who claimed that he’d never heard the gospel. We are praying for all of the seeds that were sown.

In the afternoon, we invited the children from Piedra Partida to come and color, play, and hear a Bible story.

We had a great time and even when the rains came the fun didn’t end…

Even for some of our larger kids like David Mitchell.

Thank you for keeping us in your prayers. We love you,

Thursday: San Juan Melendrez Schoole

The school at San Juan Melendez is a small country school with around 100 students. This was the first time for Americans to come to their school. They were very excited, kind, and gracious.

Here is our first class room to share in. The room was very dimly lit and the rain made much noise on the roof but the children listen very well.

And another classroom. It was good to have children with, who came on their first mission trip, to be involved.

One of the students reads a Christian tract that she received. Thank you again for all you do. God bless you,

Thursday: El Tecamante

We woke to our hottest and most humid day so far. It’s cloudy now and starting to rain.
This morning we drove to El Tecamante, a village not too far from the dorm.

As we drove out the Pan American Highway, the mountains were a spectacular site.

The road to El Tecamante is pretty rough and you never know what you might run into.

We waited at the church their for the church members that would accompany us.

Once again, we spilt up and went throughout the village sharing the gospel. Many listened intently, some asked questions, and some rejected. At least one made a commitment to follow Christ. We trusted the Lord with the seeds that were planted.

There were also several opportunities to pray for their many physical needs. Thanks once again for your prayers and gracious support.
