It is always a great day when people respond to God’s call and come to Jesus, whether for the first time or to recommit their lives to Him or to seek His answer to their problems. It is even more special for me when those people include two of my students!
Due to our Christmas break, we only had classes until the middle of the month of December. Our break lasted from December 17 through January 2.
During the break, I went to Texas. I spent the days before Christmas with friends in Spring Branch, north of San Antonio. After Christmas, I stayed with friends in San Antonio. I really enjoyed my time in Texas, but I realized before the first week was over that two weeks would not be enough time to get all of my appointments and tasks completed and still have time to relax and rejuvenate. Nevertheless, it was a good mental break and I returned to Tegucigalpa on December 31, ready to complete the move to my new apartment and resume classes on January 4.
I am looking forward to the rest of this trimester. Moises told me the students’ end-of-year reports from their high schools show significant improvement in their English grades. This was great news! I certainly hope that my students will continue to improve and gain confidence in their English language abilities. I’m grateful to be a part of that process!
I acquired new group health insurance this month through The Honduran Fellowship of Missionaries and Ministries. This insurance is inexpensive and is good throughout Central America. For my trips to the U.S., I will purchase short-term medical insurance.
Thank you all so much for your prayer and financial support, as well as your emails and Facebook messages. You are a great encouragement to me. Thank you for partnering with me in this ministry! May God bless you richly as you strive to do His will. Please continue to pray for my students and me.
With love from Honduras,
