Old and New Friends…..

We were to meet friends who are missionaries to some remote villages.

We waited at the designated spot…they did not arrive.  Then the phone call came.

They were stuck in a protest by medical staff from the local hospitals and would not

be able to continue for another 3 hours….what to do???

If we turned around we might be able to find a family that we had worked with

(he was a migrant worker in Canada) 3 years prior.  We had

a 100 cup pot of hot soup in the truck.  We turned around and headed back

and we found their daughter but they had returned to their original home.

This small community of displaced people had been moved by the government 4 years ago

after Hurricane Mitch destroyed their property.  107 families are still displaced.

So we started serving the soup and handing out bags of beans.

They came with the pots, pans and plastic bowls to enjoy the soup.

                                              Thank you for the beans….we love frijoles!IMG_1681

Our friends Ronaldo, Paulina and their family….their daughter called them and it was great

to talk about what happened in the last 3 years and what God was doing in their life…

They introduced us to Carmen and her boys….

These kids have not been in school for a year as they did not have the money

to pay for uniforms and school supplies…..

We are so happy that a family in Canada is helping get back into school…blessings!

This is the house and property that they have been paying off instead of

sending their boys to school…..
