I am leaving tonight for Honduras. This marks 10 years that I have been traveling to Honduras for missions. Wonder what God is going to teach me? Every year He reveals Himself a little deeper.

We say “God will never give us more than we can handle.” I believe more than situational (cancer, infertility, death, job loss, etc), that He won’t reveal more of Himself than we can handle. When I travel to Honduras, I hear Him in a more clarified way. Like Jesus going away to be by Himself for days to talk to His Father.

Last year, the word was this:

Isaiah 61:1-4 ESV

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor;

he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives,

and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,

and the day of vengeance of our God;

to comfort all who mourn;

to grant to those who mourn in Zion—

to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,

the oil of gladness instead of mourning,

the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;

that they may be called oaks of righteousness,

the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.

They shall build up the ancient ruins;

they shall raise up the former devastations;

they shall repair the ruined cities,

the devastations of many generations.

This verse was painted on the side of a church we passed. I felt it a little prophetic, as we were looking forward to our trip to China to get our boys. Once we got them, we would mourn no more. God would set them free. To Him be the glory.

Please pray for our team and the people of San Miguelito, Honduras. I hope to post some updates from the field.

Love,
L
