Blessings in Tierre

The Tierre village tells us that we are their partner and love working together . They worked just as hard as we did on the school and the well and are thrilled with the solar lighting. They were so happy when we agreed to be a part of their community. Tim Hines got them an American flag as they want to display it with their Honduran flag on the pole. They are very proud , many tears were shed.

Tim Hines meets with Tierre







Tim Hines
 and I met with the people of Tierre de Padre today to discuss their progress. They expressed thankfulness to all the Torchers/IRC and Sonquest donors for all the donations that have provided clean water and a well. A school and school supplies. Homes for those in need. Solar lighting at the school. ( the only light in a world of darkness) )

School Starts

February, time for school. 






Yesterday at 1 pm Solaris followed us to Tierre de Padre for installation of solar lighting at Esquela de Torch. Funds were donated by IRC/TORCH members. The first pictures are taken in the daytime. Then it became very, very dark. The completely black picture is no mistake, the entire village was pitch black by 7 pm. Then you will see a picture on the school porch with a flash. And then there was light... We were in awe of one of God's creations that we rarely appreciate. "Bringing light into a world of darkness" was revealed clearly. We pray for Jesus light to follow as we regularly minister and love these beautiful people. (Do not forget to look at last photo:)

Thankful

I am reminded every day of the sacrifices many of you have made at the clinic. Many of you planted beautiful things that remind me of all the things God can do. Thankyou. This came up last week...

Tierre de Padre

It was great to see the community Tierre de Padres come together to show all that has been accomplished because of IRC and Torch missions. They are excited about the future. Tim Hines gave them a lot to think about.

Diamonte for Church, 4 Baptisms, Jesus Statue worship

A church planted from Los Pinos is just making it's beginnings here. Timeteo and Tim preach the word in English and Spanish. There is no water for miles so water is brought in 50 gallon drums each Worship time. They could use the water for washing, drinking, and bathing but they ask us to poor it on the ground even though it means walking hours to get what they need. Symbolically speaking they are sure they left their past sins in the water and they want nothing to do with it.







The Jesus Statue built by the same architech as in Rio, was built by the first lady after Mitch destroyed the country. It can be seen by the entire capital on the hill. It is meant to give hope to those who had no hope at the time and still today symbolizes the hope of Jesus in a world that continues to be very hopeless for some.Yet they are thankful with what they have....

Fresh market for the poor, Childrens home VBS, Food and Bible giveaway, Clinic tour

Much of the country of Honduras does not have enough land for a 16 x 18 house, much less a garden. Fresh produce comes once a week to the city. Poor people can not afford it. We give our team funds to go and buy what we need to give away that day. They barter and learn the ways of the culture to get the most they can for the poor.

Those of you who gave buckets, this is what we used them for. A bucket is a lifeline here. For a couple dollars you changed the lives of those we had the opportunity to touch today. The food is a extra bonus. With a bucket they can haul water and supplies from the long distances their difficult lives require. We also provided Sawyer filters for all the folks so they can drink clean water and a Bible so they can have the living water as well. Thanks to everyone who made this happen.

Homes for the poor, more work on the school, Santa Lucia church



More homes for the poor. More work on the school. Worship in the second oldest church in Central America. Each home receives a housewarming box from all of you in Melbourne who provided these and a Bible and a prayer from the group to get them started in the right direction. They often pray along with us as they are overwhelmed at the generosity of people they have never met before.
