In Honduras and loving it

I am in Honduras with a team from our church, Faith City. We are doing work projects and training leaders from a ministry called Tree of Life. The director, who came out of Faith City is Guy Henry along with his wife Angie( girl on right). They are changing a nation with their program called Plan Escalon, which means to escalate up. They have over 400 full time students, living on campus 11 months of year, to get an education and a life trade, and then back into the culture to change it through the principles of the gospel. It is awesome.
Our team is painting the new dental clinic, and then going to the mountains for two days to deliver food and clothing, then in evening share Gospel in nightly meetings in the public square. Pastor Guy had me speak to his staff, leaders, and pastors both Tuesday and all day Wednesday... It was really a special blessing to me, any time we can encourage fellow pastors...Our team left to right, bottom row are Richard Blue, Bruce Haist,Chelsea Greenshields,Kristen Barancik, and Angie Henry, and the back row left to right are me then Chris Blue, Shaena Poehner, and Emily West. All of the team are really great to work with... real troopers... I will try to send more from Honduras, we will return next Tuesday... blessings.
