Men’s Event and Bro. Collin’s Visit

Well, as some of you know, Bro. John Collins came down and preached our men’s event this weekend. I have heard there was a great move of God, and I have talked to several of our young men and they all told me they were changed and that they definitely left this event different from the way the went. The messages made them make decisions and change some things. I (obviously) wasn’t there, so I don’t know for sure. πŸ˜‰

I can tell a difference in our young men, and that is more than enough for me. It was just what they needed, and it is awesome to see them growing in the Lord!

Bro. Collins got here Thursday afternoon, and my Dad went to pick him up in San Pedro Sula, while we got the house ready! πŸ˜€ We ate supper and enjoyed some fellowship sitting around the table.

The next day, we had prayer at 6:00 (am), and afterwards ate breakfast. We hung around the house a bit, and then went to the campground to set up the sound system for the event. After we finished, we went home to help one of the ladies of our church clean the house she was going to move into. After finishing this task, we went to eat at the campground. They had class that night, but I don’t know too many details about that. One person did get the Holy Ghost that night, though.

On Saturday, my Mom got an experience of a life time…MUDDIN’! She went to help the lady from our church move, and the mud was about 6″ deep, at least. She had to drive a truck with a trailer, in the mud, (in 4-wheel drive, no less!) because my Dad was at the men’s event. She told him now that she wanted to go muddin’! He didn’t seem too sure about it.Β  πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Well, that morning, me and the girls stayed home, and didn’t do much. At noon, mom came to pick us up to go eat lunch. We went over to the campground to eat, then afterwards came home to take a nap. YAY!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

That afternoon, Cristel (one of the young ladies from our church) came over to stay the night. We sat and talked for like 2 hours straight, which isn’t unusual for me, as many of you know. πŸ˜€ After those two hours of conversation, we went to eat supper, (pastelitos de pollo) and had an awesome time just being crazy! Ha!

Sunday morning, we (Me, Allana, Francis, and Cristel) left to go to the campground early to eat baleadas and have choir practice. When we got there, we were met by the news that there wereΒ no baleadas! We were devastated! How could that be? Haha, no not really. We just jammed out while waiting for all the young people to arrive.

After practice, we greeted those getting there, and we started church. Two more got the Holy Ghost before preaching, and they were both from up in the mountains (our newer churches). I, unfortunately don’t have any pictures of the guys getting the Holy Ghost on Sunday morning or on Friday night.

Bro. Collins preached about how that conference or service was our starting point, and that we were going to go into the world, turning it upside down. It was very direct, and on point. We were thankful for the word, and the awesome move of God at this conference!


On Monday, we were going to go sight seeing, but it wasΒ pouring! I am not exaggerating when I say that. While we ate breakfast, the street outside turned into a small river! After eating, we went to see the dock and stroll around for a while, since (thankfully) the rain had let up a bit. IΒ do have some pictures of that!

After that, we went to the store and we ran into an american couple we know here. we spent some time talking to them, and catching up on the past year or so, lol. We then went looking for dryers, and while we were looking at the different ones, Bro. Collins and all the kids, (except for me, because I was taking pictures) sat down on the seats that were for sale, and talked away.

Later that night we had fish tacos -my Mom’s secret yummiest recipe ever- and they were AWESOME!! After supper, we sat around and talked some more. Bro. Collins had been teasing Charity since he got here that he was going to get her tooth out for her, because it wasΒ reallyΒ bugging him. πŸ˜€ She kept on running away, but on Monday night, he finally caught her.

We were very blessed to have Bro. Collins come down, and we are thankful for the great move of God in our services. God is good! The Word was exactly what we needed, and it was encouraging, because we know the best is yet to come.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this first “official” blog post, and many more are on the way! Feel free to leave comments or ask questions below.

God Bless!
