April's Dedication

Last night was April's dedication.  Melissa wanted to have her dedicated at our friend's, Pastor Fidel, church.  Miss April's dedication was held in conjunction with the church's 7th anniversary celebration.

Church was suppose to start at 6:00 last night.  Suppose to is a key word in Honduras.  Heidy had school until 4:00.  Marc picked her up and they raced to Santa Ana to change clothes.  I was in town doing errands.  There was no way I was going to miss April's dedication.  I came home before all the errands were done, something I don't like to do.  We were hoping to leave Santa Ana by 5:30 and be at church by 6:30.  We knew if we were there by 6:30, we would be ok.  All of us were rushing to make this 5:30 departure time.

We arrived at 6:30 with plenty of time to spare as church did not start until 7:00.  Welcome to Honduras.

The worship was beautiful.  Absolutely beautiful.  A bit different from what I am used to, but I loved every minute of it.

And, of course, Miss April was beautiful too, all dressed up for the special occasion.

Then when it was time for April to be dedicated, we all went up on the stage. 

 Pastor Fidel spoke to all of us.

 And then prayed for the baby to be raised the Lord's way.  I was moved to tears.

It was about 11:00 when we got back to Santa Ana.  It was a long day, but worth every second of it.

Now, we all have to help Melissa raise sweet April the way the Lord wants her raised.
