Saturday was a very busy day for our family and mission team. We concluded our three-day theological conference on marriage and we picked up our first short-term mission team of the summer.
The final day of our Marriage conference was a great success. The participants received several quality lectures from our speaker Roger Dye. At the end of the day Roger challenged them to self-evaluation and reflection and encouraged the participants to work on their own marriage and to guide others in their churches to do the same. We concluded with a wonderful ceremony to present the participants with completion certificates. This, our third theological conference in La Ceiba, was a wonderful opportunity to provide theological training for people who seldom receive any.
Late in the evening we received our first short-term mission team of the summer. This will be our first of 10 mission teams in 12 weeks. This team from Faith Presbyterian Church in Ballentine, SC comes complete with 12 eager participants. Sunday, their first full day, will be a full one. They will go through child abuse training, take a tour of La Ceiba, receive orientation and attend two church services. Welcome to Honduras!
