The timing of my friend’s phone call inviting me to join a team of 18 men traveling to serve alongside Forgotten Children’s Ministry in Honduras was impeccable. My heart was filled with excitement and joy that God was answering my prayers. The mission trip, everything we saw, the feelings of pain, sorrow, and hopelessness, the songs we sung, the truths we shared, testimonies, meals, tears, poverty witnessed, blessings given, hugs received, hands held, dinner with the orphan girls, playing with the orphan boys, and the countless friendships established will leave a lasting imprint on my heart.
The Lord revealed himself in so many ways that there’s no denying this was His plan. We were the Hands and feet of Christ, and the truth of His love was shared through each of us. He assembled the team, and the experience was perfect, joyful and holy.
