Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

May was a great month here at GiveHope2Kids.  We were able to get back into the swing of things and celebrate our moms several different times. The two most important parts of this ministry are of course, number one, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without whom, none of this would be possible. The second most important thing that keeps this ministry going day to day is our Honduran house parents. Without them we would not be able to function everyday here.

These families and their children live out for us each day Matthew 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life—a ransom for many.”
Us Americans rarely show this type of lifestyle that they continually show and teach us each day. The way they constantly cook, clean, wash, care for the kids, share with us and teach us, put up with our poor spanish, work to maintain the property here, build and clean, is amazing to us.
So with the month of May, we were able to celebrate Mothers Day and take our Mother’s down to the city and help purchase supplies for their houses and kids, and give them a day away to rest.
It started off with a Mothers Day friday night youth service where we gave all the moms red roses and tried to encourage them through God’s word. Then we were able to spend time with all of the property moms on Mother’s Day. Thanks to all of our faithful supporters back home, we were able to help the ministry purchase their favorite food, fried chicken and fried bananas (tajadas) as well as pizza, pepsi, cake, more flowers and candy

Kids and adults were able to share some words, and we sang music and did a little dancing!

Unfortunately, we americans get a little carried away sometimes and end up like this

But it all made for good laughs and good food and a great time celebrating together.
The next week we were able to take all the moms down to the city and help buy pots and pans, cooking utensils, underwear for the kids, bras for the younger girls, (which left me and Will staring at each other for about an hour), of course a lunch with fried chicken, shampoo and conditioner, and shoes for all the kid

This was all possible because of all of you back home and continue to faithfully pray and give to God’s ministry here in Honduras. So we want to thank you, without your help and support none of this would have been possible.

We look forward in the next month sharing about our future.  As most of y’all know, our plan we to be here for 1 1/2 years learning, then to go out on our own, wherever God may lead to put everything we have learned into practice, and we look forward to sharing in the next couple of weeks!  God bless and thank you so much for your continued support!
