Mighty Missions

Today our group got to experience two wonderful missions that started with very humble beginnings. Mi Esperanza is a women's mission that now makes clothes using women from Honduras, giving them better than average wages. It teaches them classes that give them valuable life and business skills and blesses them with God's Word, inspiration, and hope throughout their day.
Breaking Chains is another ministry that again began with humble beginnings by simply feeding homeless.  Tonight we did what has been done for many years, we fed the homeless out of the back of the truck. But it wasn't physical food that was our primary focus. We want to give the people value. We want them to know that they are valuable to us and to God. We want to treat them with the same value God has for them as His special creation. We want to treat them as people who are made in the image of the Almighty God. That's what we gave out from the back of the truck to the homeless tonight.
We're back at Baxter Institute, Gabriel is the first one to sleep as usual. Everything is going well on our trip. Even though we leave a part of our hearts in Honduras, we're looking forward to being home with you soon. Thank you for all your prayers.
