With the pace we are leading these past few days one might think we are trying to do harm to our visiting short-term missionaries from Manor Presbyterian Church of Cochranville, PA. This is simply not true. We just want them to have plenty of chances to serve the people of Honduras.
Monday began with a medical clinic in the community of La Fe. Erin, the Troxells and the guys from Manor hosted a clinic in a dilapidated home and treated 48 people. This was our second clinic in the community of La Fe and the people were very appreciative.
In the afternoon the guys from Manor joined Mike in Armenia Bonito for English class.
In our weekly ESL class our 25 students reviewed greetings and the alphabet. The guys from Manor had given us some Spanish/English flashcards. Those came in handy as we reviewed colors, clothes and body parts. At the end of class each of the kids took their oral exam by going over vocabulary and reading a line from the book of John.
Tuesday saw a little rain, but nothing that would slow us down.
In the morning the guys from Manor worked alongside our Honduran employees at our ministry center in La Isla. They worked on the floors of our soon to be church, kitchen and StreetChild center. Lots of dirt was shoveled, moved and packed to create a solid foundation for the floor.
In the afternoon Erin, Mike and the guys went out to Armenia Bonito for Kids Club.
Over 40 kids attended Kids Club. They played games, did a craft and watched a bible skit. The kids continued in their verse memorization and answered catechism questions. The guys from Manor helped quiz the kids. This was a special day. The kids who had attended 6 of 8 Kids Club classes and had memorized the verses and questions (19 kids in all) received recognition, a certificate, a gift and a plate of food.
It has been a busy few days. We are fortunate to have the guys from Manor helping us.
