Upon returning to Honduras in January, our boys immediately jumped back into the routine of school and all that entails. They attend an International school in the city. It is a bilingual school, which means their main courses are taught in English, while other classes are taught in Spanish. The school has certainly been a blessing for our family, and has helped our children better adapt to living in another culture. They continue to study Spanish and we hope that one day they will be fluent in the language. Gordon and I enjoy leading weekly discipleship classes with the children in the ministry. When we aren't teaching, we make a point to spend time during the week with the children, so we can continue building the bond we have already established. We are thankful for the ways God intervenes as we disciple these amazing kids, and as we communicate with the people in the communities. It is such a privilege to take an active role in these kids lives, as we attempt to point them to Christ and teach them what it means to be a true follower of Christ.
Our first mission team arrived in January, with another team following shortly after. Gordon and I love going out into the impoverished communities along with the teams, giving out beans and rice, and evangelizing in the communities. With each team, come more opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ, and it's always exciting to see all God has in store for us as we follow His lead. We give God praise for allowing us to be His hands and feet!
We have two teams for the month of March, a medical team in April, and three teams expected in May. Once June hits, our ministry has a team EVERY week of the Summer with no breaks in between, so we anticipate an extremely busy Summer.

Please continue to pray for our family as we serve God by serving the precious children and teens of this ministry. Pray always for our health and safety. Pray also for the upcoming U.S. teams as they minister both to the children in the ministry and in the impoverished communities. With this in mind, please continue to pray for the FCM children. Pray they will know Christ and grow closer to Him. Pray for all our missionaries as we work within the ministry and in the surrounding communities. Pray for the staff in the States and in Honduras. It is our prayer that we can glorify God in all we do and that many will come to know Him personally. We thank you in advance for your prayers!
Because He first loved us,
