Info on HONDURAS, DUMP DAY, FASTING, & YOUR FREE HONDURAS BRACELET

DUMP DAY: Next Wednesday (May 5th) is Dump Day. Thanks for doing such a good job spreading the word. I think more people are going to be involved in giving to hungry people this year than even last year. If you’re a little unsure what “Dump Day” is, you can read all about it here. Whether we raise $700 or $7000, it’ll be a blessing to hungry people and we’ll give God all the glory. You can still help by …

  • Spreading the word through your Facebook, Twitter, blog, email, church, etc.

  • Stopping by on May 5th and making a donation.
  • Asking the Lord to bless our Dump Day and the Honduras work.

30 HOUR FAST: I’m excited about the 30 hour fast that will coincide with Dump Day. It begins next Tuesday night and ends Thursday morning. The fast will be a reminder to us that there are hungry people in this world that can’t be overlooked. Just feeling sorry for hungry people is not good enough … we MUST take action. One cool thing is that while we’re fasting the people at the dump will be served a meal that day, and it will be one of the few times ever that the people of the Tegucigalpa Dump will eat better than we will. Are you up for the challenge of the 30 hour fast?

SPECIAL DUMP DAY GUESTS: I haven’t mentioned it yet, but my friend Rickey Husband and my son Parker are flying to Honduras next week for “Dump Day.” Both have such a passion for Honduras and the work there that they wanted to fly in and help with food distribution on Dump Day. While they’re feeding people next Wednesday, we’ll be here raising money to help feed them for another year.

VIDEO: I’m really hoping in the next few days to show you a couple of videos. One is from an actual Wednesday feeding at the dump, and the other is a documentary a friend of mine is doing about the Tegucigalpa dump people. Both will be incredibly powerful.

MY HONDURAS BRACELET: I have two rubber silicone bracelets that I wear on my wrist. One is my yellow LiveStrong bracelet, and the other is my Honduras bracelet. I occasionally take the LiveStrong bracelet off, but the Honduras bracelet is always there. My Honduras bracelet reminds me of three things every time I see it …

  • First, that I’m blessed because I will eat today while others won’t.

  • Second, to pray for the Honduras work and hungry people everywhere.
  • Third, that I should NEVER be satisfied with just feeling sorry for others, BUT I must be willing to do something to make a difference in their lives.
I currently have 20 Honduras bracelets I’ll give away today FREE to the first 20 people who email me with their mailing address. BUT BUT BUT … here’s the catch … you must be willing to wear it and do the same three things I mentioned above. Here’s my email address (treymorgan (at) msn (dot) com). BRACELETS ARE OFFICALLY ALL GONE! Sorry.

Here’s what the bracelet looks like. Took me 20 minutes to figure out how to take a picture with my webcam. :)

    I spread the word a little on FB this AM. . . . sending out a notice to our congregation soon too (and a few other friends). . .I feel confident MORE will be raised this year than last!!! You're excitement over this work is infectious!

    Trey, what a great ministry you are involved in. Excited for all the people God is going to bless.

  6. Jason says:

    I used to live in Honduras growing up. We lived in the mountains for two years then lived in Tegucigalpa for two years. I started first grade there. It is a wonderful and beautiful country. The people were awesome. I remember wandering around the mountains as a kid and people having me come in to their home for lunch. I guess you couldn't miss a blond haired American kid playing around outdoors.

    Living there during those early years has helped shape who I am today. I hope that Dump Day is a success and that God is obvious in what you're doing.

    Trey,

    I'm going to share your Dump Day project with our elders – we're rearranging our congregational finances to really get involved with Mission Lazarus in Honduras, and I think this would be a great tie-in!

  9. TREY MORGAN says:

    James – done!

    Kat – I SO wish I could. I'm already whining about paying postage for a normal envelope. LOL

    Sharon – Would be honored to go serve with you sometime.

    Timbra – Thank for your help :)

    Toni – What a blessing it is (and exciting too) to get to do the Lord's work.

    Jason – Wow, that is amazing. We go work in a little village called Santa Anna. Is that anywhere close to where you grew up?

    Nick – Awesome!

  10. Carolyn says:

    I am HONORED to be wearing a bracelet and making sure to do the 3 things you mentioned. I pray for wonderful things to come out of the "Dump Day" and the 30-hour fasting. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
