I just experienced three months of non-stop adventures with Jesus. We went to different countries, cities, towns, villages, a rainforest, communities, and mountains to preach the Gospel and show the love of Jesus. We traveled on airplanes, in cars, on motorcycles, in the back of pickup trucks, on boats, and by foot. We slept on floors, under the stars, and on dirt grounds. We preached to groups of twenty people, and we preached to crowds of more than one thousand people. All of this just to bring the Good News of Jesus to the lost. The result was that we saw deaf ears open, legs grow out, sickness leave, people set free, and a great harvest of souls enter into the Kingdom of God.
I have been doing international missions for almost ten years. I have been a full-time missionary for nearly four years. But I have never done so much for Jesus in just three months in my life. The opportunities that God gave us on this trip were endless. Every day was an adventure, and every day God showed our team just how amazing He truly is.
We visited a new village in La Montaña de La Flor. When we first arrived, there was an older lady who caught my eye. I started talking to her and I asked her if she knew who Jesus was. She looked at me and said, “No. I have not met Him.” We had the opportunity to preach the Gospel in this village. Many people were healed in their bodies and received Jesus in their hearts. Thanks to what God is doing in Honduras through the Buffalo Dream Center more than eight hundred children are being fed a nutritious meal twice every week. Many people are hearing the Gospel and experiencing the love of Jesus.
We spent five weeks in Honduras and then we went off to Guatemala for two weeks. In Guatemala, we evangelized children and youth. We ministered in different communities and churches. However, the most exciting thing we did was when we took a team of young Guatemalans for a one-week mission trip to a town called Chicaman. Seeing my generation grow and follow the calling of God on their lives is heavy on my heart. Although the people in Chicaman were transformed and touched by God, the teenagers who traveled there with us were also transformed. God used them in a supernatural way and they went home with more fire and passion for God in their hearts. In Chicaman, the very first day we drove over seven hours, and then we walked more than one hour to preach the Gospel in a very remote village. On our trip, we saw creative miracles, healings, demons flee, and of course, people gave their lives to Jesus.
After Guatemala, I went back to Honduras with our amazing team. We spent another month there ministering in different places. We had the exciting opportunity to minister in a rainforest. This place is called La Moskitia. We had to drive over seven hours to get to the boat that would take us to La Moskitia. We then traveled by boat for three hours. The long trip was worth it! We feel in our hearts that God has called us to go to the hard-to-reach places. Every time we go, the presence of God goes with us and we see Him do beautiful things.
For the next two months, I will be home in Buffalo doing full-time ministry with my church. I am excited to be home and serve my city with my family and the Buffalo Dream Center team. Thank you for reading my update!
