Kids Club, Kinder And Kate

The short-term mission team from Grace Community Church of Mobile, AL is doing a great job.

On Tuesday the team did construction work on a home renovation in the morning. In the afternoon they hosted a Kids Club for 15 kids and sang songs, played games, did crafts and told the story of Jesus and the paralytic.

The medical crew went into the Kinder (K & 1st grades) school in the morning and did health and wellness checkups on 37 kids. They checked and charted vitals and distributed worming medication and vitamins. In the afternoon they hosted a medical clinic and treated 35 patients.

On Wednesday the team did construction work on our downtown ministry center in the morning. In the afternoon they took 30 kids to the river to play.

Kate and MaddyOur daughter Madison only has nine days left on her month-long cross-cultural internship in New York City. She has been able to spend some time with our future teammate Kate DeFuniak. Kate is one of the 30 future missionaries attending the training and will soon join our fulltime mission team here in Honduras. We hear good reports about Madison from our many spies keeping eyes on her.
