Starting the Day Out Right – Honduras Day 3
Our team began day 3 with a devotion led by yours truly. It was a discussion about helping others in need.
We then enjoyed a wonderful breakfast before departing to assist Open Eyes Ministries with their feeding program. There were 30 kids at the site where the feeding program is run. Due to an issue with the electricity, the power was out and we were not able to feed the kids. We were however, able to help with the meal prep and we had a great time playing and interacting with all of the kids. We had many kids throwing frisbee, coloring, and kicking soccer balls; but the biggest hit was the wiffle ball. The kids here are really talented and able to pickup the sport very quickly.
From there we went to a local restaurant for a cultural experience, Pizza Hut. We then stopped at a local market for some much needed mocha chinos before helping to prepare clothing for a local church. While we were there Don shared his testimony while Rebecca interpreted. There was also time to play with the children, they loved baseball and bubbles. You could feel the love. One young man, Christian, came around introducing himself and hugging everyone.
After that was complete we came back to the house and prepared for the evening church service with Pastor Robert. He is the one that keeps the girls for the Mission of Hope. While we were there I delivered the message for that service and Pamela interpreted for me. It was a great experience and I for one have been truly blessed to be a part of it.
