Sharing Hope

This past week, Braxton Brady led a team of families as they served and loved in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

The first day they arrived in Honduras, they spent the evening at Villadela, a local drug rehab shelter serving dinner and showing the love of Christ to these men who are usually forgotten.

With the help of a translator, Don Kilgore had the opportunity to share the gospel.

The second day, the group visited INFHA, the state run orphanage. Orphans are  prevalent yet forgotten in this busy city.

The team organized a fun celebration for the kids with cake, pinatas, and games.

Sunday, the team went to the Guacerique Church service, as Braxton preached out of Romans 12.

That afternoon, they took the girls and boys orphanages to a water park just outside the city.

The team participated in a medical Brigade with the San Juan church on Monday. About 170 adults  received medical attention and all of the San Juan POI kids were checked and treated for lice.

The families fifth day was filled with games, Bible stories and crafts at the Crucitas program.

The final day the group had the opportunity to take water trucks through the Villa Nueva Neighborhood.

In Villa Nueva the people only get government´s water once a month, so most of the time they must buy it from the water trucks.

The team was able to give away four water trucks full of water to the community. These people use this water for everything (bathing, cooking, cleaning, etc…).
