2 for 1

Buenos Dias Amigos! We have had an action packed 2 days at CDI. Monday was our first normal day there, since Friday we held the soccer tourney. We also spent the morning helping in the kitchen making lunch for the kids. We got a tortilla making lesson in the process, which we can all attest is hard work, especially when you are making them for 100+ people! After helping the kitchen staff we began our names of God devotional with the kids. After...

Hopefully we are a Little of Home for Heather

We have all been away from our family or friends for a period of time at one time or another. Possibly due to vacation. Maybe after surgery. Due to bad weather. What happens to us after this absence takes place? We long to be reunited. We miss that which is familiar, our family, our friends, our home, our bed. These things bring us comfort. We may have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of whatever created the absence, but eventually we want the...

A Mountain Moving Day

It is a humbling and wonderful feeling to know that when through the power of the Holy Spirit we yield ourselves to God's direction he can use us in a mighty way. Yesterday as the team sought to excavate rich red soil from the side of a hill, in order for a family to build a house there. Comments were made that it was slow going, and how much progress had we really made? Another chimed in with a comment that brought perspective, saying something...

Day 2 in Honduras

Day two began with introductions to lead Pastor Rossel and some staff members.

I was once again blessed and edified by the power of the bond we have through the Gospel that transcends language and culture. The immediate kinship in Christ is evident in a way that it is difficult to put into words. After our meeting is was...

A New Adventure Begins

Before the sun even thought about coming up on Thursday morning we boarded a shuttle bus from our hotel in Milwaukee and headed to the airport. Everything went smoothly as we checked in and went through security. However due to our lovely weather (-17) we got behind schedule quickly when our plane had to be de-iced before take off, making an already tight connection in Atlanta, paper thin. We arrived and had less than 15 min to deplane, and get...

Thankful

Thankful

As I lay my head on my pillow, in my bed tonight after traveling most of the day today back from a 10 day trip to La Ceiba, Honduras;  I find my heart filled to overflowing with Thankfulness.  Thankful first, for the salvation that I have received from Christ which I in no part deserve.  I was dead in my sin, yet because of Christ's death and payment for my sin, I am Alive!  It is this salvation that is the very basis for the trip.  Without...

Futbol and Fellowship (Day 7)

Futbol and Fellowship (Day 7)

Yesterday was the much anticipated futbol tournament.  It lived up to the hype, the kids were excited as I have seen them, all coming to CDI in their team's colored shirt.  My team got eliminated quickly, but congratulations to Billie whose team was the champion!  In the afternoon we were able to go into the center of town and purchase notebooks, soccer and volleyballs, birthday party decor, and bibles with some of the money that was raised...
