When God Comes Through…
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. ” Ephesians 3:20-21
In October of 2010, the Board of Reach Out Honduras decided to begin a sponsorship program for children in Puerto Lempira. Even though the Waits Family had only been in Puerto Lempira for 6 weeks, we all felt that God was beginning something and that the timing was right. Originally, the sponsorship program had 2 levels – younger children ($35 per month – to provide for fruits and vegetables) and high school students ($100 per month – to provide for tuition to the only full-time high school here which is private!). We decided to start with the Alastero kids, hoping to eventually expand into the community.
At that time, the Board optimistically anticipated a few sponsors for younger children by year end, knowing that the sponsorship for high school would be challenging at $100 per child per month.
By February, we were thrilled to share that 3 high school students would be able to go to school AND 6 younger children would have fruits and vegetables each month. What a surprise!
As of last week’s sponsorship of Dennis, 6 high school students have sponsors to go to high school AND 7 younger children have fruits and vegetables through Reach Out Honduras each month! Astounding!!
Additionally, we’ve expanded the sponsorship possibilities to college-aged students. At this time, we are working through the details of college scholarships and hope to have a formal announcement in the next few weeks.
Join with us in thanking God for these gifts… more than we knew enough to ask for and more than we could begin to imagine. And thank you to those of you who have partnered with Reach Out Honduras to give these children a hope and a future!
