Celebrating Father's Day

It's been very encouraging to see how God is working in Las Delicias. We have had several families ask to hold services in their homes. So each week we go to somebody's house for the service. We have been averaging around 40 people at each meeting. Here is a picture of some them gathering in this past Thursday.
Bro. Baudilio leading the service. Baudilio never learned to read and write and for the longest time he was always too afraid to lead the services. But over the last few months he has stepped up and started to help out more in the services and now he loves it!! He has been doing a great job.
Monday was Father's Day in Honduras. So we took a cake to share with everyone after church.
The Tiloarque gave money to buy gifts for all the father's in the three churches. Here are the father's with their coffee cups and bags of candy. They were so appreciative. They acted like we had given them a block of gold. They probably had never received gifts like this before. 
On Friday we celebrated Father's Day with the guys from Las Uvas and Tiloarque churches. We converted our living room into a banquet hall and Hannah cooked a fabulous spaghetti dinner with a fully loaded salad and garlic bread. Mmmmm sooo good.
Hannah made napkin "shirts" for each place setting, and ties for each cup. The hats on the table were given out as door prizes. (Hannah is hyperventilating and begging me to put a disclaimer here and say she apologizes for the mismatching napkins and bowls. They didn't have them in the same color and this was the best we could come up with)
Some more of the decorations she had on the table.
We served them buffet style.
There were 10 father's present including myself. We had a really good time chatting, sharing our testimonies and just having a good time.
Baudilio was one of the hat winners. He looks pretty good in it.
Hannah did an awesome job on the banquet, I was very proud of her!!! Thanks Hannah for all you do!!
