Tomorrow morning, bright and early, Gabe and I are headed out on our first short term missionary trip to Honduras. We’ll be working beside our friends, Mare (Just Making Noise) and Jon, on their ranch called, Rancho Oasis for Youth.

They obediently started their ministry over 5 years ago. It’s been a blessing to watch from afar how God has been using them in their community.

In pursuing their mission…

To provide refuge for the unwanted,
healing for the wounded & hope for the discouraged
in the midst of chaos.

they lead separate bible studies for boys and girls,

God has blessed them. They are now moving from a 6 acre ranch to a 17 acre ranch; however, they’re starting from nothing.

So, on this trip I’m pretty sure we’re going to be working hard to help them get going on their new property. I’m excited to spend some sweet fellowship time with my friend Mare. I think of her as my little sister.

So, for the next 10 days, My Humble Kitchen will be still… quiet.

There will be no updates on this blog or on any of our social media outlets. We are dedicating this time to hearing from God that he may work powerfully in our lives.

I’m excited to be away from all distractions that I may hear from him.

To all of you reading, thank you so much for being a part of this community and understanding that sometimes (oftentimes) we need to be still.

On my return, I will be sure to update you on this trip. I’m so excited to see what God has planned for Gabe and I while we’re there.

Much love to you all,

    Oh, DIana – I’m so excited for you! Honduras was my very first mission trip, and the place where I truly “fell in love with the Lord” and with Latin America! It brings back a flood of precious memories just seeing the few photos in this post. I’m absolutely certain that the next 10 days forever change you. I’ll be praying that God speaks clearly to you and Gabe while you’re there…excited to hear about it when you return!

  2. I am SO excited for you all, Diana! And will be praying for you and Mare and family that God will use you mightily for His glory! xoxo

    Praying that the Lord prepares the hearts of those you will meet, as well as yours – that you will be a mighty blessing and be blessed above anything you can imagine!
    Eph 3:20-21 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

  4. Amazing! What a gift to be there, and I am sure 10 days will not feel like enough. Enjoy yourselves!
