Ricardo and I finished a series of six consulting sessions with a missionary couple. We worked from vision mapping to a non-profit business plan to a fundraising presentation. It was great to see God reveal His plan of who He wants the missionaries to be and what He wants them to do and then to also equip them to make that a reality. Through connections to other missionaries, they already experienced some answers to prayer before heading on their furlough trip. It was very exciting to be part of this.
January was the continuation of preparing for the annual Honduran Fellowship missionary retreat. Every fall, I look at the survey results of the year previous on what workshops missionaries are interested in and what workshops missionaries are interested in teaching. This begins a process of contacting missionaries and creating a schedule. There are also meetings that include brainstorming and helping with other tasks (welcome packet/folder, contacting people to pray at the Thursday night service and to conduct one on ones).
It seemed like a real battle this year with last minute changes and cancellations. If you saw my Answer the Call facebook post, you read that our worship leaders could not come. Rebekah (of brad and rebekah) ended up in the hospital and will be facing a surgery to remove cancer from various organs of her body. Please pray for them, ‘like’ their page, and buy their CDs.
Loss and Grief (pictures)
This month I needed to see a member care worker for my own loss and grief. My grandmother (dad's mom) passed away in the month of what would have been her 91st birthday. It was hard to be away as family got together. Here is a portion of her obituary below (full here):
Two days later, our friend Geoff passed away from stage 4 pancreatic cancer. We only lived in Texas for three years, but our lives were absolutely changed (restored) through a group of friends. If there was anyone ever, on the face of the earth, that showed the love of Jesus, it was this man. We would say it 'oozed' out of him. Please pray for his wife Traci and their two girls.

At the end of the month, we celebrated 10 years in Honduras! Who knew when we set out where God would take us? He did!
