Washing Heads And Constructing A Path

Calvary Presbyterian Church has concluded their work in La Fe. This 14-person mission team from Raleigh, NC is scheduled to hike the rainforest on Friday and fly out on Saturday.

Wednesday the team started the day by going to La Fe and learning the finer art of washing clothes in the river. The local ladies taught their skills with a bar of soap, a river rock and a dirty pair of pants. Several from Calvary also took some time to wash the hair of some of the kids in the river.

Wednesday afternoon the team went back to the dorms to have lunch with a few homeless kids who are associated with our StreetChild program. After lunch the team did some work around the dorms.

Thursday the team went back to La Fe to continue construction on a concrete walking path up a dirt levee. In the afternoon some of the Calvary team helped to teach an English class to 20 kids from the community.

Calvary is our 5th (of 16) short-term mission team of the summer. We will not host any short-term teams next week, but the following week we host two teams.

Clinic, Construction And Kids

Calvary Presbyterian Church is working well in La Fe. This 14-person mission team from Raleigh, NC is our 5th (of 16) short-term mission team of the summer.

On Monday part of the team helped put on a medical clinic that treated 40 super-poor people. They treated a dog bite, a severely infected finger, started an IV, gave three injections and drained an abscess.

Both Monday and Tuesday the team helped with construction on a walkway up a dirt levee. When La Ceiba gets its 130 in. in annual rainfall this walkway becomes a waterfall and is too slick to use. The team is helping to lesson the slope and reinforce the base so concrete can be poured and a year-round walkway can be built for the community.

Tuesday morning the team put on a Kids Club for 20 kids in La Fe. They put on a Bible skit, sang songs, provided a Bible craft and played games. The entire Kids Club was performed under a shade tree. The kids loved it and were really shown the love and mercy of Christ.

Calvary From North Carolina Here To Serve

This week we are hosting Calvary Presbyterian Church of Raleigh, NC. Calvary is our 5th (of 16) short-term mission team of the summer. This team of 14 missionaries will serve the entire week in La Fe. They will be only the second short-term mission team to serve with The Troxells in La Fe.

On Sunday they attended our team’s Gringo Church as well as Honduran church. They received their orientation and were trained in Darkness to Light, a child abuse prevention program. The team brought lots of personal and ministry gifts to shower on our fulltime mission team. We are so very fortunate.

Paint, Pressure And Play

The short-term mission team from Trinity Presbyterian Church of Murfreesboro, TN is concluding a wonderful week of service. Trinity is the 4th (of 16) short-term mission team of the summer.

On Wednesday the group painted the outside of the dorms at our downtown ministry center. They shared lunch with a few homeless kids that work with our teammate Kate and our StreetChild ministry. In the afternoon they took a group of kids from Armenia Bonito to swim in the river.

Thursday morning part of the Trinity team helped put on a medical clinic in Armenia Bonito. They helped us bring evangelism and God’s healing mercy to 30 sick people. The team from Trinity helped all day at patient intake and pharmacy. They checked blood pressure and blood sugar and they checked height and weight for every person.

The other half of the team worked on two construction sites. They continued work on a new house for a poor family. They raised all of the walls to about seven feet with cinderblocks. They also continued construction on a gazebo for the high school at our ministry center.

On Saturday we say goodbye to Trinity and welcome our next short-term team. Calvary Presbyterian of Raleigh, NC will be our fifth mission team of the summer and will serve in the community of La Fe.

Schizophrenic Weather And Servants’ Hearts

Trinity Presbyterian Church of Murfreesboro, TN has had two full days of work and two completely different days of weather. Trinity is the 4th (of 16) short-term mission team of the summer.

On Monday this 16-person team encountered heavy cloud cover and a light rain. This kept the construction time in the morning nice and cool. The team divided into two groups. The first group continued work on a house for a poor family. The second group started work on an open-air gazebo for the high school on our ministry property.

In the afternoon the team helped teach and administer oral exams for our English class. They provided pronunciation help for the 35 students.

On Tuesday the clouds broke and the heat set in. In the morning the divided teams continued their respective work on the house and the gazebo.

In the afternoon the team from Trinity helped put on a Kids Club for 70 kids. They helped with memory verses, catechism questions and a Bible skit. The missionaries also helped with the craft and played games with the kids.
