Thank You!

I am making this a separate post because I want you all to take notice out there. I just wanted to say thanks for all the comments and encouraging words you have left on this blog for us. It was really cool to hear from alot of people that we haven't even see in years. I'm so thankful for this technology that allows us to communicate with so many of you on a regular basis. Please know that we always read your comments and they are a big encouragement to us. Sometimes we are so focused on the here and now, that we forget to look at the bigger picture of what God is doing here. There have been many times you had written something that really reminded me to look back and reflect on what He has done and is doing and be thankful for that instead of worrying about/working on the problem at hand. There never is a dull moment here and it seems that life is a constant battle. But when I step back and look at the experience as a whole, I can see more of the great pattern that He is weaving. So...thanks for being an encouragement for us. May He richly bless you all!

Hello, Sara and thanks for this post. Just wanted you to know that I check your blog every day in hopes of seeing something new and to stay aware of what's happening at MCCG.

I shared Jonathon's post with my niece who has four children just a little younger than your four, they are also home schooled. I'm sure they will enjoy the story and the picture.

Best wishes with the new group coming soon. I pray that the Lord will truly bless your time together.

And, by the way, the people of Africa are not "savages" either--at least not most of them. ;)

Love in the Lord,
Sue Calhoun

Hello Brian and Sara, Grasias a Dios para sus trabajo en Trujillo.
We continue to remember you in our prayers. I just returned from Catacamas after muchos retrasos. With closer of the Tegus airport traveling in Honduras has become even more challenging (Cuidado!)My work at CEREPA was professionally and spiritually rewarding. Las adicciones is a major public health problem in Honduras. May God bless you and family as you share the Good News of His Love and Compassion.

Dios Te Bendiga,
Ben

God is forever faithfu!!

I too am so grateful for this technology. I really thought we would have no contact and had lost you all to the jungle! I am highly impressed with your new blogging skills. You'll have to give me lessons on that too! ;)

You are in our thoughts and prayers always. We all miss you greatly. There are a few here that are struggling a bit with sharing you all with the Hondurans, but we are certainly excited by all the amazing ways the Lord is using you!! I will say that Joshua is counting the days until Jonathan returns and Benjamin is planning for you to spend Christmas at our house!! LOL!

May thr Lod continue to glorify His name through your lives.

Love and prayers,
The Menards
