What would it take for you to leave everything? Your home? Your children? Your friends?
We heard the call from God to love another culture, and share His truth. We have been doing that here on the island of Roatan and loving it! Come journey with us...

house of blessing
not many see this side of roatan
i call it the 'real roatan'
this is where patrick lives,
he is the young drummer at our church
who is only 17 and is orphaned.
both parents died and he and his 2 brothers and 2 sisters
are being raised by his grama.
after church today,
i felt compelled to take patrick to the store to
we have friends who send us money from canada
we are so grateful for their willingness to help.
luba sent us some money to help out a family and
this morning i knew that family would be patrick's.
he was thrilled to come groceries shopping.
bob jokingly said,
now patrick no chocolate bars okay?
and he seriously said,
what is a chocolate bar?
can you believe that?
so we loaded him up with rice, beans, flour, sugar,
pasta, plaintains, payaya, mangos, milk,
chicken and many more things.
the cart was full.
so was his heart.
i asked Patrick if he liked peanut butter and he said
oh yes but that peanut butter would be gone in one day
at our house.
i laughed and said,
well let's get it then!!
who cares if it only lasts one day.. it is probably because you love it so much.
