Kids Club And Launching A New Ministry

Dr. Greg and Pastor Mike had a busy couple of days. These two are from Trinity Presbyterian of Harrisburg, PA and are working with us for the week.

Kids ClubOn Wednesday Dr. Greg, Pastor Mike, Erin and our Mike went to Armenia Bonito. The big event for the day was Kids Club. We put on a great bible study for 40 kids. They played games, did a craft and heard the story of Noah. The kids were tested on their catechism question and their verse memorization. The guys from Trinity were super active and involved.

All day Thursday we helped Mike and Ashley Troxell kick off their ministry in our new community of La Fe. Mike and Ashley have begun daily ministry in La Fe and are working towards a church plant there.

Clinic in La FeGreg and Mike helped us put on our first ever ministry event in La Fe. It was a medical clinic that treated more than 60 people. Since this is one of the poorest communities in La Ceiba there were lots of sad cases and really sick people. Showing God’s mercy and love to these people was a great way to introduce our team to this new community.

It was a great past two days.
