Erin Sharing Our Work In California

Erin has been in California for a week sharing what God is doing in Honduras. She was able to talk to many groups and individuals in the past week.

Erin at Valley SpringsLast Sunday Erin attended the two morning services at Valley Springs Presbyterian Church in Roseville, California. During each service Erin went up front with Pastor David George and shared about our ministry and provided several important prayer needs. After both services Erin talked with dozens of interested individuals. Following second service a few friends joined Erin for lunch and talked more. Valley Springs has been a wonderful supporter of our work in Honduras. We look forward to hosting them for a short-term mission trip in Honduras this coming summer.

Erin at Soaring OaksThis past weekend Erin was one of the speakers at the first ever mission conference hosted by Soaring Oaks Presbyterian Church in Elk Grove, California. Erin spoke on Friday and Saturday. She hosted a table and distributed educational information about our work. In the kids class Erin showed a 10-minute video about our work produced by our daughter Madison. It was a great mission conference. Soaring Oaks will join us this summer for their second mission trip to Honduras.

It is always a joy to share with others about our work in Honduras. However, Erin returns to Honduras on Monday and we are looking forward to spending time together.
