A house (if that’s what you call it) just outside the dump. We visited with an older woman and a young girl who lived here. In contrast to the filth, flies and smell were their beautiful smiles.
During the Jesus Banquet, people had the opportunity to come over and pick out some new (nearly new) shoes. By the end of the day, there wasn’t one single pair of shoes left.
This was at a house build. Very rarely do you build a house that a dozen or so little kids don’t come to watch. Haley came prepared for the kids. This was her second trip to Honduras and she has quickly become an expert at loving on little Honduran kids. She and others passed out little toys, candy and painted little girls finger nails.
In the bible, Jesus was unafraid to touch a leper even if it made him unclean. The leper needed healing, but he also needed the physical touch that Jesus gave. This was Sawyer’s first trip to Honduras, and he sure reminded me of Jesus. Sawyer was unconcerned about the filth and smell of this little boy who lives at the dump … he just wanted to be his friend.
This is not a very good picture, but it’s a heart-breaking picture. Everyday a line forms at the gate of the Casa de Esparanza. Why the line? They’ve come with the same request … “We need a house to live in. Please build us a house.” Please pray for the poor of Honduras.
Tomorrow I’m going to show you an AMAZING way to spend $1000.
