A picture is worth a thousand words

The Lord is faithful and sends out His encouragement in many forms:  We are so blessed and delighted that Clint and Katy Southern came to visit.  While Katy blessed us with her beautiful photography and artistry, Clint helped to construct an outdoor stove.  We are so thankful for their time and gifts.  We walked through the village visiting with families, inviting them to church, and snapping family pictures.  Katy truly captured the beauty of the people of Honduras.  As most of these families do not own a camera, family photos are rare.  The Southern's hope to give a family photo to each Honduran family they visited.  We are thankful for this blessing and look forward to delivering this gift to these families.  Our family enjoyed spending time with Clint and Katy - we were all so blessed by their fellowship, hardwork and creativity.

For the children's delight

A local missionary family joyfully donated a puppy to the children in one of the homes at La Providencia!  Thanks to the Patterson family for their gift.  Our family had the opportunity to deliver this precious cargo.  What a blessing! The pictures speak for themselves.
Thank you Lord for all of your critters both great and small.  We thank you for the delight and joy they bring to our lives.  We thank you for the opportunity to learn how to care for and to be responsible for a living thing, and to receive the joys and delights that you bring in the form of a cuddly puppy.  Thank you Lord!
