And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
I had tons of excuses to not go (except that I really wanted to): finances, time, work, family, etc… God called me to Honduras in March for the opening of the Casa de Conocimiento Jane and Leo Neuman (House of Knowledge) Library in La Villa San Antonio. Piece by piece it all just fell into place. God kept putting that opening into view. I heard, “Go”. It was powerful, so I went.
It is amazing to see how God uses us to do His work. Jane Neuman and I were blessed to be able to make the trip to La Villa for the Grand Opening of the new library in that community. We brought a bit more than 100 books to add to the books that had been purchased in Honduras. The enthusiasm of the community, including local schools and the Mayor’s office, was incredible.
The library is available for free Internet, research support, story hours, etc… Many of the students in that area have no access to the Internet, even though it is required for school assignments or research. Most have no access to books, whether for research or enjoyment.
Seeing the opening of this library and what it will do to help the community was a great experience. Seeing how it is being run and used to provide support for learning is awe-inspiring. Seeing the look of awe and pure enjoyment on students’ faces as they perused the new books was beyond words.
The library opening was the main point of the trip. We were also able to check in with other projects, communities and activities in which Milk and Honey Missions and Linaje Escogido Church are involved. Scholarship students now have a library to support their educational needs. Relationships continue to grow and God continues to guide.
May you all be blessed and have the opportunity to hear God’s call and Go!
The new library is still in need of books. If you wish to donate a book or two, please see the following website:
