New Contact

Many of you know that we have had a keen interest in reaching Arabs living here in Honduras. In the early 1900`s there was a large migration of Arabs to Central America. Today many of them own restaurants and businesses and are very influencial in the government.

Just about three weeks ago we got acquainted with a lady named Ingrid. She is a dear Christian lady who has ministered to the poor villages across Honduras for ten years. She has recently been helping us in our ministry to the children, teaching them songs and bringing snacks. We have started meeting with her for prayer Wednesdays and Saturdays. Praying that God would open doors and lead people to our church who are hungry for God´s Word.

During a recent prayer meeting she told us that there are two Arab families that are living in our community and that she is good friends with one of the ladies. She told us that whenever we wanted to, we could go and visit them. We were so excited to find this out and prayed that God would open this door.

This past Thursday we made a special visit with the Kafati family. What a treat! Sister Ingrid met us on our way to their house and before entering we stood on the street and prayed for God´s help and direction.

Our visit was so enjoyable. It was a pleasure to get to know Nadi and her three children. She is Honduran but her husband is Palestinian. He is a civil engineer working all week and coming home on the weekends so he is rarely home. She told us that when she began to attend an Evangelical church her husband gave her so much trouble. But, over time he accepted it and she continues to go to church. She shared with us some of the difficulties she faced with his family when she first was married. Her mother-in-law didn´t like her because she was Honduran and not Palestinian. She has faced some real struggles, but in her heart she really wants to serve God.

During our visit Hannah was thrilled to get some Arabic food. Nadi has learned to cook these special dishes, you really wouldn´t even know she is Honduran.

Before leaving we gathered in a circle in her living room and prayed. She carries a heavy burden for her family. Her children are not Christians and her husband is so hard against Christianity. Please help us pray for this family. That God would get a hold of their hearts and change their lives. This is a real miracle of God and we didn´t meet by chance God has a special plan. We are excited to see what the future holds.
