Seminars and Pig Farms

We had an incredible week last week hosting David Evans and his son Zak. David and I go way back, we have known each other since childhood. They came to see the work, help out where they could, give us some ideas and direction for our pig farm project as well as hold a Nothing But the Word Seminar. 
The first few days were spent catching up on each others lives and ministering in Las Uvas and Tiloarque during the mid-week services. To break them in to the culture we took a trip to the market to enjoy all the sights, sounds and "delicious" smells.
While at the market these men serenaded us with some traditional music.
Enjoying central park and the national Cathedral.
The famous El Picachu statue of Christ overlooking Tegucigalpa.
Thursday evening and Friday were spent in Las Delicias getting to know the precious people there and talking about the pig farm that we would like to start as a source of income for our pastors. David gave us some great insight on farming techniques and some ways that we can keep our costs down.
Saturday evening we kicked off the seminar. God really blessed David's teaching. He gave us a fresh perspective on Biblical truths through the lens of Jewish culture. Very interesting and challenging!
Sunday the church was packed. We also had some first time visitors in the service. David spoke for a morning session we took a break for lunch and then came back for two sessions back to back. The people thoroughly enjoyed it and several mentioned how they could sense God's presence.

Hannah cooked a scrumptious chicken alfredo lunch.
Thank you to all who prayed for the seminar and a big thank you to David and Zak. They were truly a blessing and an inspiration.

So awesome! I'm a little offended u didn't ask my opinion on starting a pig farm.. U know we just celebrated a year of living on a farm, raising cows and chickens and drinking out of mason jars.. So I'd like to think of myself as a farm expert :) I fed our chickens once, that was cool! Ok I'm sorry that was a lie (I don't like chickens, they scare me) but it can't be that hard to throw grain or left over spaghetti or whatever it is they feed chickens :) so yea, I'm available anytime u need advice about farming :)
