Our time in Honduras was incredible! We flew in on the 12th of February and spent our first five days at the headquarters of Mercy International in Yamaranguila, a small town in the mountains of Honduras. While there, we were able to play with the local kids at the town park and share a few testimonies of how God’s love has completely changed our lives. We also spent a day at an orphanage. While we were there, we helped them dig a trench for electrical wire that will power a new house for more girls.
 


On Friday the 16th, we hiked further up into the mountains to reach remote villages. We stayed up there until the 24th. While in the Opolaca Mountains, our students gave a seminar on “Serving in the Community and Church.” After the seminar, we had a work project collecting stones from a river bed so that the locals could begin building a retaining wall to keep erosion at a minimum around the church. After that, we helped level the ground where they are going to pour a porch floor and put in some bathrooms for a church being built in Santa Maria. We also dug out the side of the mountain to create more room for future projects.
 
On Friday, February 23rd, we concluded our time in Santa Maria by leading the inaugural church service where our students shared testimonies and preached. There was a fantastic turn out, and God moved powerfully in the service! We were honored and thankful to be part of what God is doing in this region of the world!

Kairos Minneapolis – Honduras Update
 
After we arrived in Honduras Monday afternoon we had planned to spend the rest of the day traveling to our location with Mercy International. However, our vehicle broke down, so we spent Monday evening at a hotel in San Pedro Sula. On Tuesday we were able to get the van fixed and traveled to Yamaranguila. That next day we were able to partake in a prayer walk around this village and spent time engaging the people we came in contact with.
 
Our students shared the Gospel with many of them. One highlight was Mary, Brice, and Sam sharing the Gospel with several high school guys. These boys were very engaged and responsive.
 
Later that afternoon we played soccer with the neighborhood kids, and Faith shared her story and presented the Gospel. This generated great conversations afterwards.
 
On Thursday we spent the day at an orphanage for girls. They have about 35 girls there. In the morning while the girls were at school, we were able to work on some construction projects around the facility. We dug out a septic hole, transported dirt into one of the houses that was being built, and dug out trenches.
In the afternoon, when the girls returned from school, we played games, danced together, and Mary and Lexi shared their stories. It was a day full of joy and hard work.
 
On Friday we were able to teach a couple of VBS lessons.Today the team is traveling to the mountains, which means we will be out of contact for over a week as there is no internet in such a remote area. While in the mountains, we will be leading church services, teaching a workshop on worship and prayer, doing construction, and running a Vacation Bible School. The villages we are staying at have seen God work in amazing ways over the last several years. When Kairos first started going we were not welcome and yet now we are leading church services and worshiping beside our brothers and sisters in Christ!
