A Merry Christmas In Honduras

Edited_ImageEasyImageEditor_20151222_59On December 22nd Erin, Mike and Maddy spent the first half of the day in Armenia Bonito saying farewell to friends and giving lots of families a better Christmas. The community of Armenia Bonito is where our family started our ministry over seven years ago. We spent time with dozens of people we have known from the beginning. We prayed with some and cried with others.

We drove around the community and gave the gift bags to kids as Christmas gifts. It was such a joy to be able to share God’s mercy with kids who otherwise would not receive gifts this Christmas. We shared lots of hugs and kisses with the kids and saw the joy on their faces as they opened their gift bags.

Each of the families also received blankets for their homes and baby clothes if needed. These families struggle each day to find food and often times the kids go without eating. This big bundle of food will be a huge Christmas blessing for each of these super poor family.
