God's graciousness

Wow, what an exciting weekend it has been. Friday night we had a wedding at the church for a young couple that just came to know the Lord about 3 months ago. They were not content living together anymore without being formally of the great works of the Holy Spirit. It is a privilege as a church to get behind couples and help them be obedient to the Lord by committing to one another in marriage. God is so gracious.

Yesterday we had the second annual Hospital Loma de Luz road race. It was to benefit the indigent fund here at the hospital. This is a matching fund that helps our really poor patients with their hospital bills. It was lots of fun. We had 28 people sign up to run. It's fun to see the Hondurans run since it is not very cultural.

A few racing toward the finish line. :)

last few weeks

Update on Osiris: She was found to have leukemia. :( She has ALL or Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She started her Chemotherapy about a week ago. She has received blood and platelets along with the Chemo to keep her levels up. Her dad was actually able to go visit her for a night. She has started a 3 year course of treatment according to the oncologist who is taking care of her. Please continue to pray for her and her mother Erlinda. Pray for healing and the finances they need to get her the treatment she needs.

Got to paint my new Sunday School classroom with a team that was here. They helped us paint it a nice cheery yellow.

Last week the kids were out of school for Student's week. I took the kids from the children's center to church for a bible school put on by a visiting team. They learned bible stories, did a craft, sang songs and played games. They had was too bad I was only able to take them 1 of the 2 days they did it.
