I finished “Amalyeh” and sent it off to my editor before Karen and I traveled to Honduras for a month long stay. Since it was March here, it was delightful to walk into sunshine and green and tropical beauty. We stayed in a small guest room on Tim and Naomi Brechbill’s property and almost had a vacation. Our activities ranged from an extreme hike up one of Honduras’ highest mountains to attending a late night prayer watch with people dedicated to seeking the face of God. An almost vacation because when I joined a six guy mission team to La Mosquitia land, I did interview Lesbia, a native Honduran woman with a blazing testimony of her conversion and her walk with Christ.
While in Honduras, I wrote another children’s book, “Rivka Sings” and sent it to my editor. I hope this book will “sing” into the lives of children, whether big or little. It is the story of a Sudanese girl living in London and hearing for the first time the story of Christ’s birth and life. The impact it made on her is still alive for her today.
Currently, I am working on a collection of short stories from different countries. There will be testimonies of people from Israel, Egypt, Sudan and Honduras. Later on this summer, we hope to visit Panda land and connect with Lily. She is a native and spends a lot of time going into Tibet and ministering to medical and heart needs there.
