The Lord continues to move among us in many different ways. Our churches are growing and people are getting saved. We are having lots of success reaching out to young people. Our church in Danli had an outreach day which included a worship service and sports activities. Many youth attended and had lots of fun.
During this past month many projects were finalized. We finally finished the water system at El Arca. After many years of fundraising, drilling and building we can now say we have completed that project. When we relied on the village water we were without water almost everyday. Today, El Arca, has its own water system. Now all of our property has clean and safe water from our well. We are very thankful for the Massachusetts Board for Mission Honduras in Boston, the First Baptist Church of Hingham, MA and Hands of Mercy Global Ministries in Michigan. Additionally, we would like to thank many other individuals who have made this project possible. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
We also finished the construction of the multi sports court at the Newman School in Danli, El Paraiso. The court construction was started by the youth mission team that came down in March. It is a dream come true for our school. Now hundreds of children, teens and adults have a place to enjoy playing sports like volleyball, basketball and soccer. Thank you so much to all of you who donated time and funds to make this possible .
Also, this month we had the visit of the Mission Honduras chair, Rev. Dr. David Kilpatrick who flew from Boston to visit for a few days. We took Dr. Kilpatrick to see many of our new projects in places like: Rio Blanco (the Indian Lenca region), Cofradia, Cortes (new church building) and in Danli (new sport court) and to El Arca (new water system). His visit to our home and to our country was a great blessing.
My dear friends, thank you so much for your faithful support to our entire ministry in Honduras. May the Lord continue blessing you.
Dr. Hector Newman
