Today Wendy, Kyle, Mitch and I headed out with Jared to tour the local workings of Mission Lazarus. We started the day in the warehouse with all of the staff gathered for an hour of Bible study. The group has recently progressed from devos in small groups to the large group in depth study. Bible memorization as well as memorization of every team member's name earns a gift card for a pizza or burger. To be certain each one was ready with background understanding, Jared pulled back to Genesis for the temptation of man before delving into the temptation of Christ.
Sunday was a wonderful day of worship and relaxation. We gathered with two of the four congregations that Jose serves in a house in a village...45 minutes by 4wheel dive trucks. The worship flowed from vibrant song to verses to songs, preaching and communion. We enjoyed singing a final song for them. I have really enjoyed worshipping, serving and fellowshipping in Spanish!

This morning we awoke early for delightful walks and time to reflect on the beauty of God's handiwork. Dawn comes an hour earlier in this country and yet at the same moment as back home. While Honduras shares a time zone with Texas, this land does not use Daylight Savings Time.
We enjoyed the breeze and the views then met back at the dining area for breakfast...pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, cereal and fresh fruit!
By 7:30 we were loaded into trucks and heading out to the work site with warning to the drivers to keep the trucks in four wheel drive.
Everyone worked from 8:00 to 4:00 hauling bricks, sifting sand, mixing mortar, building forms, mixing concrete, pouring columns, hauling water, building mortar boards & scaffolds & water dippers...
Because a picture is worth a thousand words...
