Do What?

Early 2014:  Life as we knew it was changing quickly.  Decisions were being made for us that just didn’t feel right.  It seemed God was saying, “Look up from the daily grind!  I’ve got a whole new direction for you.”  So we began to look in many different directions, seeking God’s guidance.  After several questions of “What if…?”  “What about….?”  Mission work in Honduras kept coming around.  Our friends would respond with “What?…..Oh.  That does feel right, even as crazy as it sounds.”

For a week, Brian served at Hosptial Loma de Luz, Balfate, Honduras in 2002.  Then the regular newsletters in the last 12 years (following us through 4 addresses)  have tugged at our hearts.  But never so much as to actually move there.  In fact many years ago I even felt God saying, “You’ll go there one day.”  Which was met with my, “Sure. God, whatever you say.”  (With more of a “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude.)

And here we are:  preparing to move in January.  For a year  (or more).

We’ve already been to visit.  Now the hospital is joined by a Children’s Home and a Bilingual School.  We feel called to work closely with the directors of the home so that a disabled children’s facility can be added.  I’ll be able to use my teaching skills in the school, Brian can also help in the hospital with his nursing experience.  Only the Lord knows what fruit will come.  We are simply seeking to be obedient to his call.  Perhaps God is calling you to partner with us?  Stranger things have happened.

  3. Johnny and Presley are already trying to figure our best way to approach Dr Mckinney to let him know we want yo set up a Mallett/Scott group trip to serve at the hospital for a week after you get down there. We will be praying for you as well as a way to make that happen if God can use the talents he so graciously gifted us

  4. We are excited to see how God continues to work through your family in Honduras. We will continue to pray and follow you on this adventure!
