“...because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”
We have just finished a wonderful evening under a canopy worshipping and I remain alone writing this with the crickets chirping in the most pleasant night air. Apologies to all of you baking in the states.
The flights went smoothly and without incident. This has been so rare over the years that I have come to expect some problem to arise in our travels. The only issue that could be remotely considered an inconvenience was while at a store purchasing water and a gentleman in front of us in line who was purchasing hundreds of items for the entire city of San Pedro. (That is an exaggeration.) The time in line allowed us to get our minds on "Honduran time."
Reunions. I love seeing old friends like Steve Sandfort, who has been on five trips with me. We met him and the four from Dallas during our layover in Miami. I enjoyed catching up with him and his ever calming spirit as well as meeting the rest of our team. We also met Mizael and his precious family. He greeted me with, "My brother from another mother."
Tonight I challenged us all to value you Jesus above all things. My prayer is that this week we would all grow to love our Savior even more.
After our worship time we all bagged goodies to hand out to each of the nursing home residents we will meet tomorrow afternoon.
This has been a good day.
