Some of her ministries in the church included helping to keep it clean and working with the children. She said that she really loves working with the kids. When the need came about for helper in Honduras she said she knew it would be a great opportunity. However, she wanted to pray about it and see where God would lead. She said after she prayed "HE" opened all the doors for her. She is very excited about the future.
I asked her what were her hopes for the children's home in Honduras, she replied with this :
1) she wanted them to learn about the Bible and to change and grow Spiritual
2) she wanted them to learn the right ways to live and not to get involved in gangs like many young people in Honduras.
3) that the home would take care of their physical needs such as food, clothing and shelter.
Karla has been in the states for 2 months now and has never been outside of Honduras until she came here. So, I asked her what her first impression was when entering the states. Her response was this, " the states are very fast....everyone is always in a hurry." Wow! do we even realize that this is how others see us as Americans? I can say that from living in Costa Rica, everyone here lives a very fast paced life and food included in that.
Karla asked that you keep the following prayer requests in mind when praying for her:
That she can learn English well and quickly
Pray for her family in Honduras
For Hope of Honduras and the construction of the cottage
For the church in Honduras
For the Pastors of "El Faro" and their families
Karla is a sweet young lady and we have enjoyed getting to know her and practice our Spanish. We have a long way to go but with God's help nothing is impossible. Also, it is funny to see how Karla has already picked up on some of the American humor of what we call "picking". She is a joy to be around and we look forward Please help us by praying for her and for our family as we prepare to leave for Honduras. to when her studies are complete and she can help us in Honduras.
