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,
have a soccer team,
started a trade school to give their local residents a means to an income,
teach guitar and the importance of worship,
Mare leads cooking classes to share the importance in real food,
they teach their community how to start their own gardens for nourishment,
most importantly, they give their community a much needed refuge.
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,
