Semana Santos

Next week starts Semana Santos or Holy Week-the week before Easter Sunday. This week is a huge deal here in Honduras whether a person is Christian, Catholic or not. It is a week where you spend time with your family, travel, visit the beach, and eat special meals. It is such a big celebration week that we were told by other missionaries to stay home!
We ask that you be praying for this week. Everyday pray that the people will come to realize that this isnt a week of just being with family or eating good food but that they will understand what this week really means. May we also meditate and dwell on what this week means to us as Christians. And may we share the real meaning with those around us who do not believe.

We are sorry that we haven't written on the blog in a while. We haven't had internet and we just can't seem to keep it working.
We are doing great! The house is coming along great-they are working on laying the tile now. We are excited about moving in and settling down.
We have met some really great people lately-other missionary families. God has blessed us by putting them in our lives and we look forward to working with them in the future.
We have had a few teams stay with us here and there. It is always great to see familiar faces.
Please continue to pray for the health of the baby. We still aren't sure if the baby is a boy or girl-the last visit the baby wouldn't coraporate. But hopefully the next visit we will be able to find out! Please also continue to remember Evis, Norma and their boys and Jarmon, Karina and their children as well as our family. Pray that God will give us guidance and wisdom.
God has been so good to us and continues to bless us greatly.
