The rainy season is here! It started in May, which usually brings lots of flooding and property destruction in many parts of the country. These past weeks the rain and heavy storms hit heavily in Honduras. Our property was no exception. We were hit with one of these storms and many trees fell down causing damage to part of our property fence and the roof of our grounds-keeper's house was half destroyed. Overall we had about $2,000 in damage to our property! No bueno. However, we trust the Lord will provide funds to restore the damage that we incurred.
With the guidance of the Lord we have opened a new field for ministry at a place called Monte Carmelo in Villanueva, Cortes. Our leader there is Roberto Cortes. He lived 6 years in Minnesota, USA, and now he is back with his family. This new church plant already has about 20 people attending. They are currently meeting in a provisional building. We are already seeing the move of the Lord's spirit within this new congregation and people are getting saved.
Finally, we welcomed a new member to our burro family. We named him FRIJOLITO, who was born earlier this month.
