If you have been following this blog or chatting with us on Skype, then you know that Doris and her family are now living at the ministry house that we are establishing here in Honduras.  What you might not know is what's happening in the very poor neighborhood where her old plastico-casa was.      A couple of local women heard from God about the need for the children still living in that part of town.  They went and spoke with their pastor, Modesto Pineda, who is a great friend of ours.  Now, along with several other women, Pastor Modesto and our family an open spot is going to be used to serve breakfast to the 30 or so kids who are 12 & under in that neighborhood 5 DAYS A WEEK!    Originally, the actual location where Doris was camping was going to be used, but a Christian brother that owns apartments in that neighborhood offered, free of charge, the use of one of the apartments to be able to use for preparing and serving the breakfasts.  Praise God!
    The team of women have raised a portion of the money needed to serve the 600 or so meals a month but some help is still needed to reach the monthly cost of food.  The cost is estimated to be around $370 US or 7,000 Lempiras per month.  Local support has been raised!  But can you help with the other $160 US still needed??  Most of these kids are estimated to be eating only 3 or 4 meals a week.  You will be more than doubling their meals and it will be healthy food like eggs, beans, potatoes, cereal, and tortillas. 
    If you are itching to come visit and help with the work down here, then be prepared to rise early and help cook and see how this is blessing the "least of these".  I will be taking many pictures of the work, the kids, the place, the team and the food.  Target date to start is the first week of June and will continue until there is no more hunger.

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (The Message)
Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don't see many of "the brightest and the best" among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn't it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these "nobodies" to expose the hollow pretensions of the "somebodies"?  That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That's why we have the saying, "If you're going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God."

Interesting thoughts, just wanted to mention I came from Google.
