Preparing to visit family and friends. This seems like a normal thing. And maybe it is for some. But for us its not as easy as it seems. Many thoughts go through our minds. We have not seen people that speak English or spent time with family for a long time. The time is mostly […]
Moving Forward and Looking Up
From Jeremy: As we are now into 2021, I try and look towards the future not back at the past. Yes I have learned a lot from 2020, I think we all have. But to linger there does me no good. Philippians 3:13 says, “No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but […]
Lost but not the Forgotten
It can take days, months, years, decades or it can never happen at all. The struggles, fights, losses, wins, and the unending feeling, “Is it working?” makes being a missionary in a foreign country the hardest thing I have ever done. The reason we do missions is because we love Christ. We want so many […]
What’s been happening
It has been a while since we have added to our blog and for that I apologize. We are like a lot of you, we get busy and things get pushed to the back burner. Some good things and some bad. But we wanted to sent out an update on what has been going on. […]
There have been so many things in our lives here in Honduras that have made us think, “wow, is this really happening?” A lot of these have been blessings from God. There are times when God has shown us His glory and we have given Him all the praise for it. But then there are […]
Abrazos y escaleras
This is a saying that I have kind of made up for our team here. For all you none Spanish speaking people, or those who don’t want to use Google Translate, it means “Hugs and Ladders.” Yes its kind of weird and totally unrelated. Well not here. And if you keep reading, it probably has […]
I wanted to give an update on our mission. The academy is going pretty well. Here in Travesia, the boys go to school during the summer, their break is in the winter. They boys have tutoring/homework time everyday. The hard thing for us has been that the school here is so underfunded, with under qualified […]
The word mission is defined as, “an important assignment given to a person or group of people, typically involving travel abroad; or a the vocation or calling of a religious organization, especially a Christian one, to go out into the world and spread its faith.” It includes the military, organizations, and people. The same word describes our […]
Time, Trust, Truth, and Commitment.
We all have days when we come home, take off our shoes, sit down and feel like a 1000 pounds have just been lifted off us and we think, “wow, today kicked my butt!” Well living on mission, those days happen often. Either from the physical, spiritual, and/or emotional exhaustion of the week, day, or […]
The mission is REAL.
The command in the Great Commission in Matthew 28 is a big command. The first part is the “Go”-ing. Then it’s, “make disciples.” Then in verse 20 it’s “Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.” All commands. That is a lot of information to share with people. It’s a […]
