"Clap you hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth. Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!" Psalm 47:1-2,6Sing praises to God, sing praises! One of the songs of praise to God from this month is that He has provided several more learning and growing opportunities. In the picture above I am singing with the praise team during a Sunday evening service. I have started practicing with them two times a week and singing in the service once a month. A few of us also started taking a class with a music professor once a week to learn some basics of singing.
The most exciting song of praise to be sung is that I was able to give the class to the kids in La Ceiba on Thursday night!! This was a huge encouragement because I was able to see the future and was able to put into practice everything I have been working on for over a year and a half. There are still things to be worked on and improvements to be made but over all everyone is happy with the direction we are headed.
Along the same idea, after studying with a class Friday nights how to put together a bible study, I was able to present a 15 minute bible study for my group last Friday night. I was much less nervous and did an over all good job sharing a message about Philippians 4:1-9. One lesson I learned is that practice helps me feel more confident in presenting but even then there are mistakes...like forgetting the conclusion!! hahaha
One final song of praise to God is for the expanding of the land at the foundation in La Ceiba. This past month the church purchased the land next to the foundation, it included a building with two rooms, a free standing bathroom and a pig building. We are extremely blessed and looking forward to what God will do through this ministry.
Prayer requests and praises for this month:
- Praise that God has given me the ability to learn Spanish and now share His word with others.
- Praise for the expansion of the foundation.
- Praise for the kids who are learning and growing everyday.
- Request that God will continue to work in the hearts and lives of those who come to the foundation.
- For open hearts of those we are visiting and sharing the gospel with on Thursdays in La Ceiba
- For safe travels to Ecuador April 17-May 2 for visa reasons and to observe two ministries there.
Thank you so much for your continued support and prayers! God is good and answering prayers!
