Labor Day 2014

Or, as my brothers-in-law like to call it, The Annual Meat-Fest. That’s because I BBQ all weekend long, and there’s enough for leftovers and doggy bags.

This year, I let one of them drive the menu. They asked for:
– Pork Steaks – Saturday Lunch
– Brisket – Saturday Dinner
– Pulled Pork – Sunday Lunch
– Ribs – Sunday Dinner

I bought all the meat, but Saturday night I decided there was no.way that we needed all that. So I scratched the pulled pork. Still, that’s a whole lot of protein.

Here’s a couple of fun shots from the weekend.

2014 Hondruas -Day 6

Long day yesterday. We conducted a medical clinic at a remote area, nearly 2 hours from San Pedro Sula.

We wrapped up the day with a concert. Our worship team opened and a local praise band played also. Finally, Pastor Jonathan offered a blessing on our team and our work.

Good day, but a long one. Here are the photos.

The country church and medical clinic.

Today we readied ourselves for tomorrow’s concert and passed out Spanish bibles in the city.

First though, we visited a barrio

Then we picked up a few miscellaneous items at a local music store.

And finally, we got the sound system sorted out and practiced with our Honduran rhythm section

2014 Honduras -Day 2

Since today was Sunday, our group headed to Church. We attended our sister church, Iglesias de Christo Casa de Paz (Church of Christ House of Peace). We participated in a VERY high energy worship service and Pastor Jonathan preached the paint off the walls. Great to worship with people who love God!

We had lunch and then headed to a local hospital maternity ward where we gave the new & expecting mothers packages consisting of a “one-sie”, a newborn outfit, and a small stuffed animal for their new babies. The mothers were very welcoming and we prayed with many of them.

Dinner was at a place known for their grilled meats served family style. We enjoyed the meal and then headed for home where we distributed food items to some of the homeless men around the park.

Tomorrow is a work day as we prepare for the first medical clinic on Tuesday.
