An Update From Cindy & Her Family!

April 7, 2009

Good morning!

As I write to you this morning, I am sitting on our newly arrived old sofa! We praise the Lord for the safe arrival of our worldly belongings. The container was delivered to our house on April 2nd, Alex’s Birthday. He made the statement, “I bet nobody ever got this many presents for their Birthday!” He’s probably right. Many, many thanks to all of you that helped with the 10 month long project of getting these things here to Honduras. We really appreciate all the time and energy you spent on us.

Sunday, as we sat in church with the boys, I was overwhelmed by many emotions. I looked around with such a sense of joy and love for these precious boys. At the same time there was a feeling of great responsibility to be godly role models. How is it possible that we, Michael and I, could possibly ever be this? The answer is only with God’s gentle Hand on us, teaching and guiding us through every day. We need His wisdom more than ever as we try to nurture and encourage these young boys and men. We are working on our Spanish as much as possible. Our hope is to someday be able to speak more clearly from our hearts about God’s loving kindness and His mercy.

This week is Holy Week and here in Honduras everything comes to a halt.. Almost no stores or businesses are open. We’re already experiencing an increase traffic, as people travel to visit their families. There is no school either, which we’re all enjoying! (Normally we would have to leave the house by 6:45am.) We’ll celebrate Easter dinner all together at the boys’ home. Sardines are what is traditional here. Our plans for the week include trips to the beach and the rivers with everybody. It’s always a blast!

We finished up the first World Championship soccer tournament of Children of the Light. Alex’s team won and they will be going to the movies with Michael. They were very excited and proud! I included a picture of the teams praying before the championship game and one of the winning team..

We wish you all a very special Easter. May God use this time of celebration to draw you into a closer relationship with Him.

Easter Blessings,

Michael, Cindy, Alexander and Natasha
