02 Aug Harrisburg Group Spends Ten Days in Honduras
At the end of June, 11 persons from Devonshire Church in Harrisburg, Pa., traveled to Puerto Cortes, Honduras. There, they spent 10 days reconnecting and ministering with their sister church, Iglesia Luz. Their primary ministry focus throughout the week was leading a weeklong Children’s Bible School, building relationships in the community, and serving the surrounding communities. They also helped with construction of a wall at the church, ministered at an orphanage, and helped the needs of elderly in the community.
Says Associate Pastor Derek Thrush (right), who led the trip, “During our time in Puerto Cortes, we experienced the leading of the Holy Spirit as we served Iglesia Luz and its surrounding community. We ministered to nearly 100 children each day, visited with and prayed with many in the community, and helped build a much-needed concrete block wall for the church. Our team was humbled by the warmth, love, and hospitality of our Honduran brothers and sisters in Christ.”
