As part of IMPACT’s mission to change the heart of a man, we’ve started an annual Key Man Conference in Winter. On each water project, there are key men that stand out: they desire to know God more deeply and show great interest in studying the Bible. Our updates in the coming days will center around this gospel planting initiative and the fruits that we are already seeing.
Mark arrived in Tegucigalpa on Tuesday and met Gustavo to start the 4 hour journey to Trojas. They reached the village around 6pm and Gustavo brought him up to date on all the guys. They strategized about how best to use their time and headed out on Wednesday morning. They went through many of the communities that have been given clean water systems over the past few years. Mark said that “A flood of life changing memories washes over thinking about all the Lord has accomplished these last 8 years, changing lives in 24 villages and all the lives that have been impacted thru the projects.”
They arrived Wednesday morning at Rodi’s house, picked him up and went to Montefresco where they met Wilmer. Wilmer has 5 guys who came to do a Bible Study with us. We were there studying the Bible for almost 6 hours. They couldn’t get enough. Two of the men have had their marriages restored and their lives are full of excitement and trust seeing God at work. It was a very fruitful day.
The group then left the next morning and began the journey from Trojas to Danli, picking up 5 Key Men along the way. Doug and Jeff met up with us on Wednesday evening in Danli and everyone had a wonderful time connecting. There is a great anticipation as we begin the conference on Thursday morning.
Please continue to cover us in prayer this week. We are so blessed by this message we received from Pastor Miguel, whom we met in Cuba late last year:
Jeff greetings to you, Gustavo and key men in Honduras. Glad to know that you all arrived well and are ready for the day tomorrow. And tonight we pray for you, for teaching, so that the key men to be touched by the Spirit to feel passion and commitment to the Lord’s kingdom, and bear much fruit for His glory. “That Honduras is filled with the glory of Lord, as the waters cover the sea. ” (Hab 2:14) That the movement is now flourishing, reaching the most remote places of Honduras where they have never heard of Jesus of Nazareth.
We continue to pray specifically for each agenda item. I leave you with the following word of the Lord:
Rev. 3: 7 …. Thus it saith the Holy, the True, who has the key of David, who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens:
Rev 3: 8 I know thy works; behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one can shut; because thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word and have not denied my name.
