Eight years ago when Shannon and I visited Honduras, I was introduced to a church in Catulaca and told “this will be your church.” I love it there. I love the children who run up in the street to hug me. I love the women who I once knew as teenagers but are now fantastic moms. I love the teenagers that are struggling to finish school but are do just that… finishing. However, this is not my church. It is the people of Catulaca. We have been waiting and praying that there would be a leader who would want to teach the children and young people. Sunday, I sat and watched as this prayer has been answered. God is training up local leaders who want their children to know Him. Ada is one of those leaders. Ada is an amazing mom and wife with two sons. Like any mom, she worries about her kids. She sheds tears over them. She teaches them to sit in church even when they are too little to understand. Ada’s desire for her kids to learn who Christ is, is now spilling over to the other kids in the church. She is now team teaching on Sunday mornings with Edith. It is times like this that remind me of why we came here to begin with. We are not here to be the church leaders but are here to support the Honduran leaders that God is raising up. Continue to pray for Ada and this group of kids at Catulaca as Ada learns to teach and lead them.
