“Sorry You Don’t Get A House Now.”

My heart is broken … yesterday was a bad day for the poor in Honduras. My friend Marc Tindall, our missionary from Honduras that coordinates all our work there, called yesterday to say he’d been robbed right after leaving the bank. Two men on motorcycles grabbed Marc’s backpack that he’d just filled with money to pay for 4 houses for the poor in Honduras (about $7500). In the process of the whole ordeal, it also left Marc’s vehicle wrecked. What bothered Marc was now he was going to have to tell 4 families, that desperately need homes this summer, “Sorry, you don’t get a house now.” I hate it when children and the poor suffer because of evil …

The only thing I can think of doing is having some kind of “online”Ā fundraiser. I don’t want to just “feel sorry” for them. I don’t want to just trust that someone is going to do something. I think God calls “you and I” to step up and do something … to do more than just pray … more than just feel compassion. We need to do something. We need to take action.

SO what If we get enough people to give $5, $10, $25 or $100 … we can have the money for 4 houses raised pretty quickly. Four families can have houses again.

You can send a check to …

    Is this really on the up and up. People can’t be too cautious today.

    • Brandon says:

      I know Marc. I don’t know Trey (but have heard good things).
      I was with Marc 2 weeks ago. It has been a VERY rough summer. I support Marc, Terri, Matt and Nicole. They are doing what God has called them to do whenever and however they can with whatever they can. If you choose not to donate, that is fine. But I know that God will still provide for them. Please donate with faith in God and don’t be cautious of the actions of man.

  2. Delana says:

    I agree with Janice… Sounds fishy to me too…

    • Trey Morgan says:

      There was definitely a “set-up” somewhere. Marc is going to be changing the way he handles funds … going away from cash, changing up when and where he goes to the bank.

      • He may try to get certified checks from the bank, or travelers checks, or a money transfer from the bank he is at to the bank close to where it needs to go … Glad Marc is ok …
        I did have second thoughts about this story like the two other people that commented …

      • Angela Clark says:

        That is just what I was going to suggest, if nothing else set up accounts at the suppliers so THEY can draw directly from the bank, leave the cash out of Marco’s hands so he doesnt have the burden of protecting it

      • Trey Morgan says:

        Marc is already working on going cashless for everything now.

  3. Patricia Riggs says:

    Just gave $10 for those 4 families. Hope others will too.

  4. Judy says:

    I don’t know Trey Morgan, but I do know Marc & Terri Tindall. They are real people doing great work in Honduras, showing some of the poorest people the love of God.

  5. We were robbed in December of 2012. Hate the feeling. Hate that this happened to Marc. I’ll get something in the mail soon.

  6. Jana says:

    So very thankful Marc is okay. We will be sending some money.

  7. John Crabtree says:

    I know Marc through several mission trips to Honduras. It is alarming, but Marc is not the only one who carries carries several thousand dollars at time when we are there. Cash is the most fluid way to handle any need, especially construction materials. Carrying it on your person is just about the most assured way you can keep up w/ it, even though it’s risky. I am just so thankful Marc was not harmed. The money can and will be replaced to build these houses. As I have heard Marc say many times, “God is good, all the time.”

  8. Brandon says:

    I don’t see the link to donate staight to the 4 families. Did I miss something?

  9. Brandon Awbrey says:

    For those who worry that this is legitimate I have a good friend from our church in Honduras right now working with these missionaries. Brandon – You don’t donate directly to the families, they have neither the supplies or expertise to build these homes.

  10. Sharon Durham says:

    Janice & Delana: I am currently IN Honduras along with 28 other people, working with Marc Tindall/Honduras Hope We completed 2 houses already this week, will be riding on a bus 3 hours into the mountains tomorrow to build another house and run a medical clinic for about 150 people in Southern Honduras. Tonight, during our evening devotional, I had my hand on Marc’s back as our team prayed over him. I saw the contusion on his head, and listened to him recount yesterday’s horrible experience. I can assure you, this is definitely on the “up & up.” On Marc Tindall’s Facebook page you will find a link to the story in the local newspaper. Our team plans to build 2 more houses before we head back to the states in a few days – I hope we have the funds to do so. Maybe you were referring to the manner in which Marc was robbed – I doubt it was a random act – someone was probably watching Marc go into the bank, and/or tipped off the thieves that he was carrying a large amount of cash. In any case, this really happened, and the loss of funds has the potential to rob four families of a safe home.

    Mark and I are sending a check. I bet Mare could employ a body guard.

    Phillips family in Virginia donated $25.
