We want to welcome back to Honduras team leader Steve and some old friends and a lot of new friends this year. There are five churches involved with this team. Welcome folks from Trinity Baptist Church, Fairlawn Baptist Church, Pleasant Valley Church of the Brethren, Blue Ridge Baptist Church and Blacksburg Baptist Church. This was a team of fourteen and half of the team members were all new friends. But they all came on board ready to serve the Lord. Some of these folks did not know each other until this team was formed. The unity this team represented who would have known they did not already know each other. Everyone pitched in and did an amazing job working side by side. If it was cooking breakfast, making the sandwiches, mixing the Gatorade or loading the trip, they all worked side by side as one big and amazing family in Christ. We would like to welcome back team leader, Steve, Mitchell, Joe and daughter Claire, Sandra, Paula, Mike, Sam and Darryl. We would love to welcome on board Jim, Chris, Pastor Tommy, Robert and Jenna.
The first night of devotions team leader, Steve, did an amazing job challenging the team He chose three different scripture references to reflect on. Missions is individual. God put this team together. God wants to show us something. The mission trip is a vehicle Every one of us has different levels of faith. We all are on a different journey and will learn something different simply by being here.
Hebrews 11:1 We have faith easier to speak than it is to do. God will test our faith and how are we to get there if we cannot see our faith. We struggle with our faith because it is not something we can see.
John 7:16-17 You will know what God's will for you is this week. Questions
to ponder on: What did God want you to see, What did God want you to hear, What did God what you to feel and what did God want you to experience.
John 5:17-20 God's will is where God shows me He is working in my life this week in Honduras. You will be spiritual blind if all
you come to do is build a house or do a police conference.
