“It’s been an interesting year so far.” July 28th, 2020
This is an excerpt from my last post which is dated March 6th. Which means that it was written before the Honduran country was put on lockdown on March 13th. If I had only known then that those first two “interesting” months would be the most normal ones of the year. Things went from “interesting” to “pretty crazy” in a week, with very little possibilities of calming down any time soon.

Please pray for this situation to be resolved before I lose my mind.
The shipment of clothes and supplies for the children’s home is due to be shipped this weekend. We have been told that there shouldn’t be a problem with getting it out of customs even though travel is rather hard lately. Please pray that the container gets here safely.

Thank you all for for many prayers.
Keep your trust in God and not on things of man.
