Day 4 on the site...

Today started out great… Again, nice and cool under cloudy skies. The intermittent showers and cloud cover really help to make the work easier. The roof on the church needed to be finished today so we started by carrying all of the tin sheets over to the job site where the brothers began nailing them down.

We began a bucket line to finish emptying the septic tank. The dirt was carried over to the front of the church to bring up a low spot by the entrance.

The sisters again did a super job getting breakfast ready for us. The construction is often the focus of what we are doing but the task of organizing meals for all of us and cleaning up after is a huge job that our hermanas do with joy.

Today some of the boys had dish duty.

As VBS time neared kids from all over started trickling into the area. Many of them wearing their best dresses.

Today the Lord brought over 100 kids… They have begun to learn the songs we have taught them so the singing is getting progressively louder. Some said they could be heard all the way down the street.

Sister Wendy from the local church has stepped in to help lead the children. She is great at tying the biblical principal of the story into the bible verse and the craft… God was really moving today in VBS.

The kids enjoyed their craft and some time of prayer... we went well over an hour today and so many were blessed.

Back at the church we saw the pulpit floor get poured.
And the brothers began lining the septic tank with large rocks and cement

We packed up for the day and headed over to Cucaca where we got to check out some improvements the church had made to their building. A few years ago a team from CBC came to construct this building. The recently added recessed lighting and fans. It’s a beautiful house of worship.

We headed back to the hotel to clean up for a church service in Zamora. On the way we got to stop at Wendy’s for a burger and fries.

Although they are a bit longer than we are used to the church services here are one of the highlights of the trip for most.

The worship is so powerful many were moved to tears. We had been practicing a couple songs so they gave us to floor to worship also.

Pastor Tino finished with a time of worship. It was a very moving night…A great finish to another awesome day.

Hi Bryan,
The news is awesome and I am glad you all were able to make it. We just got back in country today so I wasn't sure if you had made it out to Honduras or not. Thank you for the updates...great work!
