The six-person mission team from Grace Community Church of Mobile, AL arrived Saturday night. Grace has been a major supporter of the ministry in Honduras for four years. This is their third mission trip to La Ceiba and we are absolutely thrilled to have them here. Over the years this congregation has been so loving to our family and the work here. They bring with them a heavy medical contingent.
Our ministry is very blessed to have the Craig family serving by our sides for three weeks. Scott, Kathy and Jeffrey Craig are MTW missionaries who served in Monterrey, Mexico for several years. While in Mexico they focused on hosting and housing short-term mission teams. Because of the violence in Mexico fewer churches are sending teams to Mexico and the Craigs find themselves looking for a place to serve. As they pray through future options they will work with us in Honduras, live in our dorms and help host our next three mission teams in July. What a blessing for us.
Tom DeKleer Junior and Senior have joined us for a short while. Tom Sr. is an architect in California and he is the one who has designed both of our ministry centers here in Honduras. He joins us from our home church. Back in 2009 Tom visited us for a weeklong mission trip and his heart swelled for the people of Honduras. Tom is here to help work on the building he designed and explore future design projects.
Our team is very blessed to host so many people who wish to serve Christ and the people of Honduras. Please pray for these three groups as we host a full house in our dorms.
