Hi friends. Well, the next chapter of the divine adventure is underway. Our personal belongings, on the other hand, are not underway. We learned that harbor traffic in the Port of Los Angeles and a U.S. Customs inspections have resulted in our container departure being delayed until July 29th! This is tough news as it will make our start in Honduras a bit challenging. We’ll be doing indoor camping for a while. The movers in San Diego were so quick that they loaded up things that we had intended to take with us on the plane. For example, they packed my Bible! (A Bible teacher really needs his Bible).

This blog is not meant to bemoan this inconvenience, but rather to ask you to pray. And also to give testimony of God’s goodness as evidenced through His people. Just as friends in San Diego shared houses and cars with me prior to leaving, the Church in Honduras is ready to help us with some of the challenges we will face upon arrival. One friend is willing to share his car with us, others have offered dishes, and Iglesia El Camino de La Vida is already preparing for our arrival. In the picture, you can see Pastor Melvin’s new truck, being loaded up lovingly my bruthas Luis and Nixon with mattresses for our entire family. These mattresses are being moved from El Renuevo to our new home for us to use. This is really cool as the mattresses where part of an investment made by New Covenant Bible Church, and will be a great blessing to our family as we arrive to an empty home. Even cooler, there’s an extra mattress for our friend Nathan who is coming down to join us to do some construction and repairs on our home.

We know that we will not lack anything we need despite not having our things there on time. God is good and His mercy is seen through the generosity of His people.

Romans 12: 10-13 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Share with the Lord’s people who are in need.Practice hospitality.
