I was so thankful to spend time with the MAG staff that I had not met in person yet- the Wiles in Honduras and Carlos Paz our Director of Pastoral Ministry. I couldn’t ask for a better leader of Pastoral Ministry to work with than Carlos. He is amazing at what he does and I am excited to keep learning from him. Our whole team was also a joy. The other ladies on our team were mostly college age. It was such a pleasure to get to know them and encourage them. I was also grateful for the “unplugged” time as our team didn’t have access to Wi-Fi or cell service (though there is some limited coverage for those who live there). While that feels really weird at first, the break felt quite soul cleansing. Whenever I had a few spare moments instead of popping on to Facebook I would spend some time praying, talking to teammates or getting to know the village and the people there. It felt like such a better use of my time- I’d highly recommend a Facebook fast to anyone! We also enjoyed a few swims in the Rus Rus river with some of the local kids.
Sean leaves in less than a week for his trip to Rus Rus to help with a large medical brigade there. His trip is February 9-24. Please pray for a safe, healthy and fruitful trip for him. Pray also for the rest of the family in his absence. I am so grateful to have my mom’s help while he is away. Pray also for the people who will be helped by the clinic- that they would find hope and healing both physically and spiritually.
Blessings in Christ,
