Another Piece Unveiled

Today in class our teacher told us that she found a store with Arabic and American foods. I was excited. She told us where it was, and after class we went to check it out. To tell you the truth I did not expect to meet any Arabs today ( I know ... ye of little faith). We walked into the store, and right away I started looking for the Arabic food. It was in the back of the store. There was falafel, zetoon (olives), magdoss (filled peppers) zet zetoon (olive oil) from Lebanon, and on goes the list.

We went up to the counter and in Spanish Eric asked the lady if she could speak Arabic. She said yes and then I started speaking to her. I asked her if she was from Honduras. She said yes, but that her family are Palestinians who lived in Amman, Jordan. I couldn´t believe it. Here I was in Honduras speaking in Arabic. I asked if there was a lot of Arabs here. She said that there´s a lot of them all over the city.

I can´t tell you how excited I am about this. The Lord has showed me over and over again that He is in control. The first two months here I thought that we would never meet Arabs. This time we have found the Jordanian embassy, there are Arab stores and restaurants, and most importantly we are meeting the people. Please continue to pray for this opportunity. Before I left I asked her if there were ways to meet some of the Arabs and she told me that it was hard, but I´ve learned that God always makes a way.

Isn't it amazing how God opens doors and guides us through them?
Remember, the will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you!

I was blessed when I read the title, I knew something good was coming. Oh how exciting, I remember before you and Eric got married how the devil would try to bring question marks about your work with Arab World Ministries and Erics call to Honduras. In are small finite minds we could only see a part of the puzzel, or picture, God sees the Whole, we just have to keep trusting Him.My heart is just weeping for joy. I am so excited. Praise Him. Praise Him. Praise Him.
