I just got an email from an AIM team that’s working down in Honduras. These young people spent a week with me in Childress this past spring. Their team consists of 3 boys and 3 girls and they will be there for just over a year. I have found their ministry so amazing that I had to share it you.
They’ve found a large group of families and children that are going to the dump every day to pick through the trash trying to find something to eat for the day. Sadly, by the time it gets to the dump, it’s already been picked over numerous times. One of the girl’s emails said, “Here’s a dump update: This past month we had the opportunity to go out there everyday for a week. We have been making sandwiches and taking food out to the people sorting through the trash at the dump. God has given us a unique ministry to reach out to these people.”
She also said, “Here are some things we’ve done just this past month. I think we’re making a difference…”
· Given away 1050 lbs of food
· Given 1200 sandwiches at the dump
· Given away 800 bibles
· Built 16 houses
· Given away 900 sets of clothes
· And built 2 schools
· We have also continued to visit hospitals and pray with the patients
· 35 baptisms!
Wow, talk about ministry! Yes, I’d say that they are making a difference. Keep up the good work Honduras team!
