Today, for the first time, we head to the community where we will be drilling a well. We will have the opportunity to walk and see where the community currently gets their water. I don’t really know what to expect. It may be that they walk to another community to get water from their well, in which case, they have access to clean water. However, can you imagine walking even a mile each direction every day for clean water? And it may be that they don’t have a clean water source at all. Many communities get their water from dirty, contaminated sources. We will also begin work on the well today.
Pray: As we see the great difficulty present for the community to get water, please pray that I would also see the spiritual needs within the community. Despite any communications barriers (I basically don’t speak Spanish, which is the native language in Honduras), I pray that my actions and attitudes would communicate the love of Christ for the community. Please also pray for my and our team’s health as we begin to work in a very different climate. (As I prepare this blog post, the forecast for Monday, and basically the time we are here, is 86 and a heat index of 108. It also looks like we are likely to experience brief thunderstorms each day around 2:00pm)
Gracias por sus súplicas!
