It’s been another great and challenging day in Honduras! This morning we ran a VBS at a school near Promise Home, getting to make new friends and share the love of Christ with them. This afternoon we continued working on the trail that team 1 started last week. The team worked so incredibly hard to achieve this common goal of completing the trail and it was awesome to work together and see it happen! Hear more from students below to hear their thoughts from today–

God told me to be in Honduras and teach the young kids about what He has done for us through Jesus. He created the heavens and the earth and made a way for us to be saved. Today was we went to a school to talk about God and do crafts, rec, and story time. It was a good experience for the kids and for us. They learned lots of things about our God that is with us. It was cool to be reminded over and over by God that we were there for one purpose: to show His love to these kids.

Today we got to visit a local school and do VBS with students ranging from 1st grade to 9th grade. I was extremely intimidated at first because I didn’t think that kids who were so close to us in age were going to take us seriously. My team and I sat down and prayed before we gave our sermon, and I could literally see God answering our prayers before my eyes. A group of 7th-9th grade students who were described by their teacher as having “bad behavior and no respect for authority” became students who were kind and receptive and eager to hear what God was saying through us. One of the most important things I’ve realized through this trip, and especially today, is that there is no limit to what God can do. He is the God of the World, the God that performs miracles. In the past, I’ve had a tendency to place limits on what I think God can do. I only prayed for things that -I- imagined to be possible, but God is so much greater than anything I could ever imagine. We need to pray to God being expectant that He can make the unimaginable happen, all for His glory.

It’s the second day in Honduras and I can now tell you in full confidence that laughter and hugs are an international language. Today we went to a school and held a VBS. The kids were beyond thrilled to see us, I met two little girls named Ashley and Kayla. They gave me a tour of their school and also bunches of hugs and laughs. I could see the joy that is so super evident through their generosity. Many kids were buying us candy, sodas and fruit. It was really eye opening to see that even in the face of poverty, they still spent their lunch money to give people they have never met before gifts. These past few days have been amazing and a very important step for me in exploring the extent of God’s love for everyone. I have realized that stuff I normally worry about and get stressed over in America doesn’t really matter and that I should always stay positive and joyful through Christ. I am beyond blessed to have this experience and am super exited to see what God has in store for the rest of this week.

It’s a joy to see students processing all that is happening in and around them. As I type this, there are multiple deep debrief conversations happening organically. Join us in continuing to pray for the Spirit to land on us! Tomorrow we will be leading a VBS at another school in a village called Toyos and then helping with After School Club. Pray for continued energy and abiding in Christ!
