1 Nation, 1 Day Trip Updates

Is Obeying God More Important Than Your Comfort?

My husband and I have a pact: If God calls us to do something, we will forgo comfort to follow His call. This pact has led us on a number of adventures, including adopting our son two years ago from Russia, traveling to China last year to Maria’s Big House of Hope to love on orphans, adopting a special needs child from China (currently in process), and now traveling to Honduras with Missions.Me to share the love of Christ with a nation in need.

I’m scared and thrilled out of my mind to be called completely out of my comfort zone. I’ve never gone to Honduras. I don’t speak Spanish. I don’t have a special gifting in the youth or drama department. Yet my assignment for the week of July 13th - July 20th is to lead a group of 25 people, two translators, and a bus driver to various schools in San Pedro Sula to perform skits designed to invite students into a personal relationship with Christ.

We will also equip the teachers of every school with curriculum to encourage their students to build their character, courage, and purpose in their lives. And we’ll be joining 2,000 missionaries throughout the country of Honduras to provide life-saving medical aid, preach the gospel, and train pastors to better equip their churches.

Isn’t it just like God to lead us to a place where we have to become completely dependent on Him?

Our team verse for this mission trip is Ephesians 3:20: “Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” If you would be so kind to keep our team in prayer this week, would you pray for the following:

  • Safety. San Pedro Sula is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Please pray for God’s protection over each member of our team and that we come together in unity.
  • Courage. That we all lean into the freedom of giving our full selves over to service for God’s glory and not be preoccupied with our own fears and discomfort.
  • Salvation. That everyone we encounter will see the light of Christ shine through us and be moved to accept Jesus as their Savior.
