What an amazing and busy year it has been here at Give Hope 2 Kids. We, the Johnson family have some great news on some upcoming changes and transition that will be happening very shortly. But before we get to much into these changes, we really just wanted to talk a little about other changes happening to the young lives here in the villages we live near and at Give Hope 2 Kids.
We have personally been watching young teens step up and are starting to become young leaders. It is such an amazing transition and the want to learn more is so exciting to see.
Earlier on this year we started a discipleship group for those of you who remember. With the guidance and knowledge of Jacob Baker ( Missionary Family from Alabama) this discipleship group has grown and get so excited about learning more about God.
This last Saturday, we took a group of young volunteers from our youth service, and with the leadership of our discipleship group, we were able to interrupt the daily lives of several sick and hurting kids in the public hospital in La Ceiba (almost 2 hours away). From previous experience (once one of the kids here was admitted to this hospital) children in this hospital would have to wait incredibly long periods of time, sometimes up to a week, just sitting on a bed all day waiting to be released.
These young volunteers and young leader reached out to the kids in the hospital by singing, dancing, playing, coloring and at the end watching a movie with snacks. What a great experience for this youth service to be examples and practice sharing the love of God; and for our discipleship group to be leaders in this experience.
Lets take a look at a video of what these future leaders of Honduras brought to the lives of so many.
(sorry, the video is in Spanish only as it was intended for the youth service)
What an amazing group of young adults who are so excited about growing and learning more about God. Growth is also challenging our family this year. We are so excited about the next steps in our lives. With continual prayer and all of you who consistently keep us in your prayer and have been so encouraging we have felt God calling us to our next steps. So for those of you who enjoy our updateds, please stay TUNED for our next post of our next amazing step of growth... COMING TO YOUR COMPUTER SOON.
Thank you for partnering with us in prayer!
