Saturday evening in Honduras, Cliff, who had preached earlier that evening was driving back down on one of the roughest sections of road and I was videoing. He asked how I thought it went, I thought he was asking about the road conditions and I said, "About as rough as I've ever seen!" He clarified, "No, I was talking about my sermon." I said, "me too!"
“But arise, and stand upon thy feet: for to this end have I appeared unto thee, to appoint thee a minister and a witness both of the things wherein thou hast seen me, and of the things wherein I will appear unto thee;”. Acts 26:16 ASV
This is my verse this year and now I know why. I've had opportunity after opportunity to share the gospel on this trip. Some have been lost, some believers, some serving the Lord, one lady had quit attending the church because of gossip. One man brought his daughters as his wife was out of town, while one woman said her husband was not a believer, so she sent the kids and stayed home with him sometimes. I felt so at home: so different, but so similar. One lady asked what the US had. Several things were mentioned, but I added: "like here, little boys run around getting into things, young girls stay in packs acting like they are ignoring boys, we have family and friends that are sick and some have trouble with money, but people everywhere need Jesus!”
That's why we're here and that's the foundation of our purpose in Sanger: people need Jesus and we are called to make disciples. We appreciate your prayers and support. Cliff Swofford and Reed Parsons have had such an impact on this trip. I'm just glad to have been a part!
