Oscar has been our friend for a few years and his story is a beautiful testimony of what happens when our work goes beyond the water project and into discipleship and lasting friendships. God has transformed his life and blessed him and we are blessed to know him and his family.
Our time of the year for Key Men and discipleship is just around the corner after the New Year. Please keep us in your prayers as we open the doors to these men in the village to dive deeper into the word and receive mentorship and support from our team.
Changing the life of a village and the heart of a man. John 1:14 says, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” The water project is just a reason to be here. The immensity of the need is drastic and the experience of actually being here in person, being part of the lives of the villagers and getting to know their families brings Kingdom living to fruition and is the experience of a lifetime.
As IMPACT kicks off another season of water projects in Honduras, we reflect on how God’s purpose for our work has grown and changed over the years. We knew that there was a very real and physical need for clean water in these villages. We knew that God was going to use this work to bring villagers to experience His love and grace. But what we didn’t realize was how it was all going to come to fruition when our volunteers and their compañeros began to share their lives with each other.
We are now seeing how God’s plan has put us in front of ‘Key Men’ in each village. These guys have a hunger for the Word and a desire to lead their families and strengthen their communities. Doors have opened for us to disciple them and to connect them with each other to create strong bonds of accountability and support. And that work, goes beyond the needs in this world for clean water. It sets them and their communities up for an inheritance far beyond anything we can bring to them but that God has promised to all of His children.
