Missionaries Of The Street

It matters not if you live in Honduras of the U.S., if you invest in people's life and form relationships, you learn of the problems, heartaches, and sometimes brokenness in people's lives.  And we have learned it is sometimes easier to feed hungry people, or clothe them or give them medical care than it is to invest in a relationship and learn of an unwanted pregnancy or of alcohol or drug addiction or the other problems people are facing.

 A couple of people have been willing to take a chance and share of their alcohol addictions and the brokenness it has caused in their lives and the lives of their families.  Marc discovered a rehab facility in El Centro.  There is a men's facility and a women's facility.  This ministry is called Missionaries of the street.  It is run by Hondurans and they have very little money with which to operate.  More than once, Marc has taken food to them.  Food to serve the patients. 

I am thankful that people want to minister in this way.  There is so much need for this kind of treatment.  I am thankful that we have been led to this facility.  We hope to be able to help them as we also hope they can help some of the people we meet.
