Easter in Roatan, Honduras

I can honestly say that Easter was our most liked day so far while here on the island. We got up, got everyone dressed in their Easter Sunday best and headed out for a fun-filled day. Started out at church, Jeremy preached to a standing room only crowd while kids’ church enjoyed a good message followed by an Easter egg hunt. After the service, we all made our way to the beach to participate in the Easter baptism. What a beautiful sight, there is something to be said about getting dunked in the crystal blue Caribbean waters in honor of the One that created all of the beauty that surrounds us. It was breath-taking. Afterwards, we made our way over to the winding pool at the resort where we meet each week for a giant buffet and a full day of swimming and hanging out. We couldn’t have asked for a better day; sunny, warm, a beautiful pool, and great island friends to share it with. We are so blessed and thankful for all that God has done for us. When we least expect it, He surprises us with amazing blessings.

This weekend will surely fly by for us as we say goodbye to our new friends, the Corwin family on Monday. We will miss them dearly but know that we will see them again.

Trey is getting ready for the Dwellings house build on the 17th. He has the material ordered and is getting the posts set as we speak. His goal is to have the foundation set before the guys arrive that have volunteered their time to build it. The family receiving the home consists of a mom and her two sons, the dad has long since left and if you could see what they lived in before, you would be shocked that anyone could call it home. What a humbling experience as she walked Trey through her home knowing that he was in the process of lining up its demolition. This is an amazing ministry and I encourage you to consider being a part of a house build. If you can get away for a week, the next one is in August. (email trey)

Take Care and God Bless,
