Thank you so for your prayers as we travel reporting to our supporting churches and visiting new ones. Since our last letter, we have been in churches in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.
Thank you for praying for our furlough as we push forward to the goals we have set for this time. We are nearing the end our our furlough. We plan to return the first week of April, Lord willing. Above all we pray that the Lord will use us for His honor and glory and that we will be a blessing in each church we visit. We pray that the Lord would call more missionaries to Honduras. Also, we are happy to get to see our family and friends again. We need to raise more support so as we report to our supporting churches we also pray that each one would increase our monthly support. If you are able to do that we would appreciate it very much. We count it a privilege to be your missionaries to Honduras. As we visit new churches, we pray that they would begin supporting us. We praise the Lord for those who have already increased our support and the churches that have started to support us financially. We ask every church we visit to back us with your prayers. Your prayers for us and the ministry are immensely important.
Please pray for our upcoming Youth Camp. It will be during Easter week, or as they call it in Latin America, Holy Week. We ask you to pray for that the Lord will provide the funds to pay one half of each camper’s cost. That is $58.00. If you can help, please send your offering to the IBFI office, made out to the IBFI, and designated to Honduras Youth Camp. You will be making an eternal investment in that teens life. In past camps, we have had teens saved and others dedicate their lives to the Lord. Please pray for each teen and those who will be working, teaching, and preaching.
We praise the Lord for the funds that have come in for the vehicle to take back to Honduras and use on furlough. It is a Nissan Rogue. The bank that loaned us the money and has in the past explained that laws have changed and now when we take it out of the country it becomes an unsecured loan and the interest rate will increase. Please pray with us that the Lord will provide the funds to pay it off and to pay the shipping and to pay the Honduran import taxes by March. We are asking sixty churches to make one payment of $460.00 between now and February. If the Lord leads you to make a payment, please send it to the IBFI Mission Office and designate it as car payment.
If you are not receiving our emails, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are trying to change to email only newsletters. If you prefer us to mail you a paper copy, please let us know. You may call by telephone to 817-341-9158. Thank you again for partnering with us to take the Hope of the Gospel of Christ to Honduras with your prayers and support. May God bless you greatly.
Yours with Hope For Honduras,
