01/2/16 Feliz año nuevo…Happy new year.

 

It is the start of a new year.  There have been a lot of fireworks popping, but you don’t see fireworks stands like you do in the US.  I wonder where they buy them?  Still, it amazes me that people who seem to have so little can come up with the money to buy fireworks.  I see it as an attempt for people to have a release.  If they could only meet Jesus Christ to get the only true relief that touches the soul and spirit.  Only Jesus can give true rest for the weary.  “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matt.11:28-30).

We are adjusting to life in Honduras pretty well.  I count it a blessing to get to eat some of the local specialties such as the tamale pictured here.  This little treat is steamed in a banana leaf and has masa, beef, raisins and peas as well as other vegetables. Tasty.  Thanks to Mrs. __’s handy work in the kitchen, I had another local treat, my first taste of beans today since I have been here.  However, let’s put this in perspective and take to heart where the best food comes from, the Word of God.  “Man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” (Deut.8:3)

Please pray for us to find a small truck to purchase.   This is a pressing need, and we need the Lord’s help.
