A divine appointment

Everyone’s heard of them. Many people have had them. We had a big one today! An appointment only the Lord could have “randomly” put together!

We have been praying about this outreach to Honduras, 1Nation 1Day, for about a year now. Some friends of ours are participating. We had hoped to see them here, but they were assigned to a different department of Honduras. We have prayed that God would prepare Honduras for a pouring out of His presence and bring change to this nation that contains what’s been named the Murder Capital of the World (San Pedro Sula). At the same time, we have been praying for a family we knew years ago – so long ago that none of our kids remember them – who has been going through a difficult time because of an accident.

This morning it looked like we wouldn’t find the team after all. We thought maybe their schedule had changed and we hadn’t been notified. But when we found them, we discovered that they were nearly all from Lancaster County – where we came from! Not only that, but the daughter of the family we’ve been praying for since August was with them! So here we were in Quimistán, SB, Honduras with a group from Millport Mennonite and The Outpouring – including an old family friend!! Only God could have put ONE of the 2,000 who came down from the US in our department – out of 18 – on the bus coming to our town – out of at least 4 in our region!

We are thankful to have been able to participate in a small way and in prayer for this event. We spoke personally with a few who received Jesus as Savior that day, and we talked with them about how to find answers to questions they may have in the near future. We prayed for teachers in each of the schools. Our hope is to continue some of those relationships when we return from furlough.

This is being posted 4 days after it was written. Please excuse the delay and that “today” was really Wednesday!
