What an AWESOME day in Namasigue!! Well I guess this is officially day 2, but the first day where we were doing actual work. The day started with worship in Namasigue. As always, worshiping with the Christians here is an extremely encouraging experience. The preacher, Javier gave a lesson from Philippians on being happy even when problems arise.

After worship we finished setting up the clinic and began seeing patients around noon. There were 74 patients that went through the clinic this afternoon.
I was part of the evangelism team that included Dondi Malone, Wayne Smith, Javier (preacher in Namasigue), & Espartaco (preacher in Choluteca). Espartaco was our translator. We left the clinic around 1:30pm, and studied with two different families and brought food sacks to two others during the afternoon.
The first study was with the Darce family. We studied with them for the better part of an hour, and all of the adults in the household made the decision to commit their lives to Jesus Christ!
Adults from left to right … Gladis Darce, Javier (preacher), Tomas Darce, Carmen Maria Darce, Gladis Johanna Darce, and Me.
We went down to the local river for the baptisms, and I was privileged to be able to baptize all four of them….
The study with the second family went well, but they are not quite ready to commit. Our plan is to come back and visit with them again later this week.
Every year before I come down here, I start thinking about how much of a hassle it is to get everything ready, and how much I’ll miss my family, and begin wondering whether or not it is worth it. And, likewise every year I’m totally blown away when I get down here. What a priviledge to be able to share the Word of God with the people of Honduras. What an awesome day, and what an awesome trip to share again with my dad. Praise God!!
