4 THINGS ON MY HEART TODAY

(A boy from the Tegucigalpa Dump)
I’M LEAVING: One month from today I’ll be heading back to Honduras for a week to have a banquet for Jesus at a dump, possibly build a house for a needy family and feed a bunch of hungry children. I have fallen in love with this ministry. Due to this trip falling in the middle of school, two of my sons that went with me last time, Parker & Connor, won’t get to go with me this time. But I’ve promised them they’ll get to go next summer. I’m excited to have Rickey Husband going back with me on this trip. Rickey is an amazing asset for God and for this work. I don’t think I’d want to make this trip without him. Randy Allen will also be going with Rickey and I on this trip. Randy will be a rookie on this trip, but I have no doubt he too will quickly fall in love with the Honduras work.
I LOVE GIVING PEOPLE: I’m wanting to take every kid at the Casa de Esperanza (children’s home in Honduras) a new pair of tennis shoes. The Casa kids are Honduran children who have been rescued from abusive (sexually & physically) homes, from being homeless on the street and from severe poverty. (Here are their stories). Yesterday, I presented my young adult bible class with the tennis shoe project. I asked them to take a picture of one of about 20 kids and provide them the tennis shoes they need. Oh, me of little faith, I worried we might not get all of the kids pictures picked up. Not only did they all get picked up within seconds, but I also had several donations for some other little projects that they need too. The coolest comment I heard after class was a wife tell her husband, “Hurry up and get up there before all those kids pictures are gone.” :) I was touched by a bunch of young couples that looked beyond their own needs and saw a place to help.
PAYPAL BUTTON: Somehow I was able to make a “Donate to the Honduras Work” Paypal button on the sidebar of my blog without screwing anything up on my blog…yeah! I’m not looking for donations at this time, but from time to time there are people wanting to give, and if the Paypal button helps, use it! This coming May we’ll need to do another BIG Dump Fund collection to feed the people at the dump. The money we collected last May will be running out by then.
FILL A SACK: Honduras isn’t the only place you’ll find people in need. There are hungry people in my own community of Childress. All we have to do is open our eyes and we’ll find people in need. On November 22nd, our congregation is having a “Fill a Sack” campaign to feed the hungry in Childress. Our goal is for each family to provide a sack of groceries for a needy local family. I can’t wait to see all the sacks of food that will line the front of the auditorium that Sunday. I love that the Childress CofC is a church that wants to not only be a voice for Jesus, but also the hands and feet of Jesus.
Here’s an idea, find someone to bless today.

    If your youth group is looking for something to add to the fill a sack campaign: I was at my small group yesterday afternoon and a group of kids from the local methodist church came by and were canvasing neighborhoods in our community collecting food for the food pantry/food bank. I was blown away by how much food they collected just by going door to door. Such a simple thing to do and you get donations from people outside the church.

    The stories of the sweet kids you told yesterday in class really touched our family! Jason and I will be taking the kids on a little "shopping" trip to pick out new shoes for the beautiful kids we picked up yesterday. Such a GREAT lesson for our children, who MIGHT have been complaining about not having a new pair of "church" shoes to wear! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do this.

    You are relentless and I love you for it. When the time comes, I'll help.

    I'm excited about some possibilities for us here, as well.

    We pack the pulpit with groceries so that there's nowhere for the preacher to preach! :)

    I love your heart for the poor and especially the hungry. Thanks for sharing and reminding me to think outside the walls.

    My family spent a week ministering in Zacapa Guatemala last summer. Unbelievable experience. By the way, check out my book. Might be a good Christmas present for your wife! Blessings – Wendy Ellis
