Praying for Honduras

By Keith Lee, Associate Pastor

From June 28 to July 2, I will be part of a group representing Trinity UMC to the children at Heart to Heart Children’s Village in Honduras. There will be eleven of us: Peggy Fox, Leah Horan, Kat Kehoe, Lucy Kehoe, Olivia Kehoe, Tessa Mannell, Christine Lee, Keith Lee, Leslie Vorndran, and Meredith Vorndran. I’m really excited to go with this mix of youth and adults. I would like to let you know the purpose and planned programs for the trip. As well as to ask for your caring and encouraging prayers.

In planning for this trip we asked the leaders at Heart to Heart the types of programs and events that we should organize They said planned events like soccer camps and vacation Bible schools are already scheduled by other church and faith groups slated to come. They simply asked us to spend time with the children because they love attention and developing personal relationships. When our group heard that, we were pleased that the trip will be about relationships and caring for the children there. In order to facilitate this process, we thought we could plan games like soccer, volleyball, kickball, basketball, frisbee, crafts, and drama. In addition, we will be raising funds to take all the children to a waterpark for a day of refreshing activities.

I have been to many overseas outreach trips, and because there are so many factors involved, it’s not possible to consider all the details. We will do our due diligence and at the same time ask for prayers for divine guidance and protection. These are some of the areas that we ask for your prayer support (if you have other areas that come to mind, then please pray for those too):

  1. Love for the children and staff at Heart to Heart
  2. Humility to serve and develop relationships with them
  3. Love and unity for one another within the Trinity team
  4. Safety and health for the team and children
  5. Wisdom and prudence for the team
  6. Meeting financial needs for the trip
  7. Creativity and joy through the process

Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts in the days leading up to and during the trip. We will be hosting events like Movie Night on May 6 and a Bake Sale on May 7 at Trinity to raise awareness of Heart to Heart.
