The adventure continues…

 Remember that fantastic swimming hole that the kids love with the bigs rocks to jump off of?  As all of the kids were swimming and jumping, Lille got bumped off the rock and landed face first into other rocks.  I watched it all in slow motion and waited for Lille to pop her head back up to see the damage done.  Amazingly, she walked away with only a gash under her chin.  Praise God!  

Lille’s wound allowed us to see another ministry here in the valley of Honduras.  The ministry is Healing Hands Global, a jungle hospital located in Rio Viejo.  The couple that started it moved to Honduras to minister to this valley 18 years ago.  They saw the need for a clinic that more rural villages could access more easily than a 3 day trek to La Ceiba, the closest clinic and hospital.  So Martin enrolled in medical school here in Honduras and became a doctor.  Martin and Wendy moved their family back to the village of Rio Viejo and started a clinic.  We talked with Martin while he inspected Lille and then got a tour of the hospital that is ministering to this area.  The clinic that he started has grown into a hospital and they host many medical groups throughout the year to spread the gospel, provide medical care to the villages and teach prevention of many of the common diseases here.  

We are so thankful that Lille’s injury was minor!  It is amazing to see how the Lord led us to see another whole ministry here in Honduras and to connect with Martin and Wendy.  

Yesterday, our kids were invited to the Christmas Party at the school in Urraco with the older kids from the Children’s Home.  Isaiah, Lille and Eva walked up the dirt path with the kids hand in hand to experience a school party in Honduras.  Pepsi (the drink of choice in Honduras!) was served and they all LOVED the experience.  

We continue to marvel at God’s beautiful creation and are thankful for this experience as a family.

    So glad Lille is okay. That must have been a shocker. Never a dull moment with the Williams!

      Glad Lille is okay. Also thankful you got to go to the clinic – both for help and to see what they are doing there. Amazing that you’ve experienced so much. Hard to believe that Christmas is nearly here and you will be back soon. Look forward to hearing more about how this has affected you all. Blessings, Fred
