The short-term mission team from Rincon Mountain Presbyterian Church of Tucson, AZ had a very diverse and eclectic day of ministry.
In the morning two missionaries stayed in town to try and fix our teammate’s car. Following a huge storm Shannon miscalculated the depth of the water in an intersection and her car stalled. Joseph and Miguel were able to dry out the engine and get it running again. Shannon couldn’t be more happy.
A group of ladies also stayed in town to help dig through a large amount ministry supplies. They uncovered and sorted lots of baby and infant items that will be a great gift for some pregnant moms we know.
The rest of the Rincon team did some morning construction on our ministry center and a new house for a single mom. The house group continued to mix cement and lay blocks for the walls of the new house for the needy family. The house is coming along nicely and may even be completed by the end of the month.
In the afternoon the group helped make and then eat homemade baleadas cooked on a wood burning stove. After lunch they provided a great treat to 30 local kids. They drove them to the river and swam and played for hours. This kind of intimate interaction with adults is rare for these kids.
This day was a great blessing for the Hondurans and the fulltime missionaries alike.
