Sarah and I had the chance to speak in a bi-lingual congregation on the East Side of St. Paul yesterday. Pastor Jose and the congregation treated us great, and we really enjoyed ourselves. I attended Faith Temple (Templo de Fe) in 1997 and 1998 when I was in Minnesota finishing up my bachelor’s degree. It was great to be back at the church and see some familiar faces.
Sarah and I have just two more days now to get ready for Honduras. We fly out early Thursday morning which will be the 13 of July. We really are excited to be going, but the next couple of days are very intense. We have several rooms of the McCready house littered with our belongings. It’s going to be a race to get everything done and take off on Thursday. This year we will be back for a few weeks in December and January to visit some churches, take care of Give Hope 2 Kid’s business, and be with our families for the holidays. We’re hoping to take advantange of the next couple of years, because after the orphanage is up and running, it may be a couple years between each trip back to the states. It will be interesting to see how it all works out. If you or your church or small group would like us to come and share more information about the orphanage, please let us know. So far we will be visiting Minnesota, Indiana, Virginia, and New York, but we’ll be here for several weeks and there are a few dates that we still have free.
Thanks to all of you who keep track of us and support us in so many ways! We will keep you up to date as we move ahead with what God has called us to.
