His Truth is Marching On

Glory, glory, hallelujah…His truth is marching on!

I am tempted to begin this blog post apologizing for not writing recently…but I won’t! ๐Ÿ˜† (Even though, technically I just did)

God has been so very good to us these last few days. Things have been a little crazy, due to the COVID-19, but we are hanging in there! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I have read countless blog posts and news articles written about the Coronavirus, and I know everybody has their opinions about it. There are people who go to extremes to avoid it and isolate themselves completely to avoid people and air (and anything else that carries the virus ๐Ÿ˜‚ ). The other extreme of people are those who deny the virus’ existence and go around without being safe and taking the measures of hygiene that are recommended; those who seem to be daring the Coronavirus to get them. ๐Ÿ˜

I think we need to be moderate. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I know Who holds tomorrow, and I am not afraid.

Take care of yourself and those around you. Don’t panic and cause others to, as well. Wash your hands, cough and sneeze into your elbow. If you have symptoms, wear a face mask (if you can find one ๐Ÿ˜‚), and keep a bottle of hand sanitizer with you at all times (again, if you can find one ๐Ÿ˜‚). Alwaysย take your vitamins….that meansย every day. (Even if they’re nasty. ๐Ÿคข) I saw a sign at a pharmacy down here that it is recommended not to greet anybody with a kiss right now. I tried to explain to my parents why that was best for now, but they brushed me off…don’t say I didn’t warn you! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

My whole family tries to avoid talking too much about the Coronavirus and mentioning it in our conversations, although it is a little hard sometimes. Right now, both Allana and Nathaniel areย stuck in California, and we’re not sure when they will be able to come back home. Honduras is in a lock-down mode right now. All Honduras has an absolute curfew. It started out being three days of nobody being able to leave their houses, but it is now indefinite. God is very good to us, and we were able to stock up on many things (including toilet paper, which we have a tower of in my parents’ room๐Ÿ˜‚). However, others weren’t as fortunate as us.

Today they opened up pharmacies, banks, gas stations, and grocery stores from 7am to 4pm, and there were crazy long lines everywhere, as people were trying to get into the stores and buy what they needed. There was a limit of items per person, and also a limit to the amount of time they could be in the store. Only one person was allowed per vehicle and only people from ages 16-59. The staff was assigned at the doors to take people’s temperature as they came in, and if it was over 100 degrees, they took them immediately to the hospital for quarantine for 14 days. Thankfully, we didn’t need anything from town today, except for a withdraw (which my dad was about to get in about an hour).

People are going crazy all over the place, but the Church continues to march on! Church services were prohibited (as they have been in the States, for the most part), so we were unable to meet in the sanctuary tonight. Thankfully, the whole church was able to connect to an online service (#zoomcloudmeeting) and we felt God’s presence in such a special way. Even though we were dispersed, we know that God is with each and every one of us. It was bittersweet for all of us to hear each other’s voices without actually seeing them face to face. Bro. Adan, Allana, Nathaniel, and my Grandparents (on the Schreckhise side) were able to be in service with us tonight.

I will be the first to admit that I want this to be over with really soon (like before my birthday, preferably!), but it also excites me to see what God is going to do in the midst of this situation. It reminds me of the apostles in the New Testament who had church in the different saints’ houses. Yet, despite all the things going against them, they had incredible revival!! I can’t wait to experience (and testify about) the great things God will do in Honduras in the midst of all this.

I am thankful to be a part of the Church of the living God, the only Church that isn’t held back by the crisis of this world. Jesus is still in control in every situation!

There are some really good things that have come out of this world situation, and I’m sure there will be time to tell about each one as it unfolds.

 

Today is also Honduran Father’s Day, so shoutout to my daddy! Thanks for being so great, Dad. I love you, and you inspire me every day to become more like Jesus in all that I do. Your patience leaves me with my mouth hanging open most of the time. I’ve heard that I am going to marry a guy like you someday, so I guess God is preparing me! ๐Ÿ˜† xo ๐Ÿ˜† Love you bunches, Papi! โค Hope you liked your coconut cream meringue pie! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Thanks for reading, and I hope to write more soon!

 

Have a blessed

  1. I really appreciate your take on everything going on, because it’s so easy to get side-tracked, but you’re right! The church is marching on no matter what happens!

    1. Amen! It is so true. The things going on down here can cause a lot of anxiety in all of us (especially not being able to see the people from our church), but we continue to belive that God is doing great things, and the best is yet to come!

      Thanks for reading, and God Bless!

  2. Awesome post! You have a great perspective on the whole situation, even more of a grip than I do. ๐Ÿ˜‘ Iโ€™m struggling with it all, lol.. especially since I flew home for my broโ€™s wedding next week and now itโ€™s canceled and Iโ€™m stuck in Canada and canโ€™t go back to my HOME for who knows how long.. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ซ anyways.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    This world is really showing what itโ€™s really built upon, what kind of foundation itโ€™s found upon. Thereโ€™s so much I could say about whatโ€™s happening, but you did a really good job writing about it, thank you for taking the time to write this all out. ๐Ÿ˜Š Definitely praying for you all in Honduras, I know God has a plan behind the scenes and Iโ€™m praying that God reveals it to us and why this all is happening! Heโ€™s up to big things!

    God bless.

    1. I heard that y’all were able to make it back to Canada. We were praying that y’all would be able to make it back. I’m sorry to hear that your brother’s wedding was canceled. I’m sure they were both dissapointed about that. I hope they are able to get married soon (I don’t know what their plans are right now). I was talking to Sis. Marci about how crazy things are getting here in Honduras, and I hope it doesn’t get that way in Belize!

      It may seem like a set back, due to the fact that we can’t leave our houses and go evangelize and all that good stuff. I think everybody in our family has had a bit of anxiety in the last few days, but we know that God is in control.

      The highlight of having the Zoom services is that people who ususally stay home from church have to listen in to the messages! God knows what He is doing, and I can’t wait to testify about God filling somebody with the HG without Pastor even being there! I believe that it will happen, and I can’t wait to see what all God is going to do in these months. This is still the year of revival!

      Thanks for the prayers, God Bless!

      1. Yes! I am definitely happy to reunite with my family and a few of my friends! Me and Pastor DR and his family are quarantined for 14 days, so Iโ€™m not able to see many of my friends for now.. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

        Yes! There is two ways to look at all this going on, we can use it as an opportunity to show Godโ€™s love to our community by reaching out to them or we can use it as an excuse to just stay home and shut up!

        Hoping and praying Iโ€™ll be able to get back to Belize, ASAP! ๐Ÿ™

      2. Wow! I’ll bet y’all are having all kinds of fun without be able to leave where you’re at. ๐Ÿ˜ Staying at home (with so many of us here at the house) tends to drive us all a little crazy! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜‚ I pray the 14 days pass quickly!

        I am definitely excited about what God is doing. We are in a situation we have absolutely no control over, and I know that God is using these things for our good. When He is in complete control of the situation, He is able to do so much more. I can’t wait for the testimionies that come from these trying times. God is still good! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

        We will be praying you are able to make it back when the timing is right! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
