Yesterday was an amazing day. I’m sorry I didn’t post this last night, we were all flat worn out. We were on the road yesterday by 5:30 am and picking up trash around feeding area by 6:30.
It was a full day of serving people … hungry, dirty people. Marc Tindall guessed that we served around 1200. The wind blew out of the right direction to constantly bring the pungent smell of the dump. After being on our feet all day we finished last night about dark. We were tired, sunburned and ready to rest.
Thanks for praying for our amazing day. I’ll include more pictures when I get home. Blogging on my Blackberry makes it tough (and expensive) to include pictures. (In the picture, a proud dad sharing a plate of food with his son. Dad’s wearing a new shirt that was given to him earlier that day.)
For those who have family working in Honduras this week, they are all doing well. You should be proud of how hard they have worked. They’ll return home with lots of stories, pictures and excitement. Thanks for letting them come.
Today we will build the John Helm Victory House. John is a Childress man, father of 3 and dedicated husband. About 3 months ago John got a staph infection that tried to take his life, and did get part of his body. Despite doctors saying he probably wouldn’t live, he has. He’s now a few weeks away from getting to come home. So today, in honor of John’s victory we build a house for a family that desperately needs one. Pictures later of the house.
