JUNE 2013 UPDATE - Anniversaries and Teams
Jul 4, 2013
"I will sing of the LORD's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations."Psalm 89:1
IN JUNE, WE CELEBRATED OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN ROATAN!
As well as our 18th Wedding Anniversary! Yay!!!
We have completed Spiritual Gift testing for most of the church members and are meeting individually with each member to review the results. One lady committed her life to Christ after realizing she didn't know where she was spiritually. It is great to have the assurance of Heaven and His working in our lives. The Bible says "These things are written... so that we may know that we have eternal life!"
The boys speared three lionfish recently and were very excited! They are helping out with a house-build in the colonia this week. Two families with many children each will move in as soon as they are complete. We are working on a retaining wall now that will help make it last. One of the families is in a very dangerous landslide area so this must be finished before rainy season starts in late October/November. Ella helped with the New Jersey team doing a VBS down in Flowers Bay and continues to show great leadership in worship at R Church. We are excited two new families, the Neighbors and the Lawyers, are moving down this month and both have kids close to our children's ages.
We are proud to announce that Tish has started her counseling and opened an office in Roatan. We only know of one other counselor on the island of 75,000 people. She has already started with a few couples and is seeing God move in their lives as they apply Biblical principles to their life situations. Her website is www.myinsightcounseling.com and is being updated with the new location in a few days.
We have added online ordering and have a good supply in the states to provide fast delivery. We are hoping some churches and individuals will change from Folgers to our Missions Coffee! We have a church in Pennsylvania that is taking a number of bags this month! Yay!!! This ministry helps us employ 3 single moms and provide funds for work projects like the one pictured above. We just invested in 300 lbs of beans as we trust God to sell them for us.
We thank God for each of you and appreciate your prayers and support! May God bless you richly!
Travis, Tish, Ella, Zachary, Heather and Eli
