It's Day #8 for our mission team, today we return home to our family. The last day of the mission trip has always been a bittersweet day, because as a missionary I long to see and hug my wife and children again, but also feel sad to leave my brothers and sisters in Honduras. I want to say thank you to all my brothers and sisters in the U.S. who followed our trip with prayer and encouragement, they have helped us greatly. I ask that you keep the country of Honduras, especially the children in your prayers and that the seeds we were able to plant will bear good fruit that will be a continued blessing to all and that all the glory and honor be given to our Lord, to who all honor and glory is due. God bless and can't wait to see all bringing back the awesome testimonies and reports on how good our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is... Posted by Mike Anson, Jr

On Day #7, our mission team blessed 47 children with a trip to the local mall, where each child received a pair of pants, a shirt, a ride on the Ferris wheel, and an ice cream cone. To many that may seem kind of ordinary, but to these children is was all but. As a missionary I learned today that we can use the mall as a mission field, that patience is a gift we must choose to use, to nurture and encourage others and that preaching the love of Jesus Christ can be done without words and is such a powerful gift. Today I can say without a doubt the person who the Lord blessed the most was myself, to not only see these children smile, but hear their laughter when on the Ferris wheel and their big eyes as they waited for an ice cream cone. These children each with their own unique personality are so loving and wanting to be loved in return. I spoke with my wife today and told her what we had done and about the smiles that was on the children s faces, she said that they probably weren't the only ones smiling, that the Lord was smiling also.. Makes me want to cry thinking that the Lord has been so pleased with our mission trip, that I could not only see a smile, but also hear him tell our mission team, "well done thy good and faithful servants." Posted by Mike Anson, Jr August 7 at 8:27pm On Day #6, our mission team spent the day at the beach in Tela, Honduras getting much needed rest. The past 5 days have been very taxing physically on many members of the team, but if the team needed to suffer physically to see that the will of God be done here in Honduras and that the people of Honduras (especially the children) be blessed with sharing Christ's love...then it is more of a blessing. As we suffer to serve Him, we can be used as his instruments. Posted by Mike Anson, Jr
August 7 at 7:55pm On Day #5, our mission team spent the day blessing the Betesda Feeding Program with a lunch and some fun with the children. I have seen fruit from our last mission trip to Honduras, and again I see the faithfulness of God in the seeds that Solid Rock Church has planted into the Betesda Feeding Program. Before this mission I was able only to see my sponsored child as a photo on a piece of paper, but on this day I was able to reach out to hug and shake the hand of my sponsor children and many other sponsored children from my brothers and sisters of Solid Rock. The Lord is doing amazing things and it is such a blessing that He has allowed us to share the blessings as seed planters in this program. These children are full of love and joy and they were not the only one to receive a blessing today, but their smiles were such a blessing to our team, seeing the Lord use us in blessing these children not only on his mission trip but throughout the whole year, thru the Betesda Feeding Program...

August 7 at 9:53am On Day #5, our mission team spent the afternoon blessing the children of the Betesda feeding program with lunch and some fun, we spent the evening at two church services where 2 of our missionary team members preached. Posted by Mike Anson, Jr
August 6 at 9:20am On Day #4, we went to the town of Cohbasa, Honduras, we once again blessed the children, as this was our third time there. Not only did we present them with new shoes, but we also painted and financed the much needed repairs on their school. Today I can say I learned 2 things about missions. Some might say why help the same town of Cobhasa, or maybe even why help the same country of Honduras. But what the Lord has laid on my heart is you can make a greater impact when you continually plant a seed, water the seed, tend the weeds that may choke out the seed, and in the end see and experience fruit from that seed; fruit that itself carries seed to be planted in another place and produce more fruit. Secondly, I noticed that as we were painting the school, more of the young men in the town were painting and less of us were...and no we weren't being lazy. But that is what the whole point of missions is to leave those of the town the the knowledge to carry on your mission when you leave, so that they can not only care for themselves but teach it to others.

August 5 at 2:14am On Day #4, our mission team to Honduras, went out to Los Campos to the town of Cobhasa, Hoduras and blessed the children in the community with brand new shoes but also painted and helped finance structural improvements for their school. Posted by Mike Anson, Jr
August 5 at 1:48am On Day #3, our mission team traveled about 2 hours to a small town called Santa Barbara, many of the children and adults had a very light skin color and some had blue eyes. In other towns in Honduras, the children are very welcoming and affectionate, but the children of Santa Barbara were very reserved. As a missionary, this was a great learning experience. Many times you want to make a warm connection so your message will be heard and accepted, especially when you want to tell someone about the love of Jesus Christ and the salvation He offers. Just using something simple as a "darme cinco" give me five in Spanish, and having the child react with a smile opened up and put their mind to ease, but also opened up the path to tell them of the true reason for my going on thes mission trip, to share with htem the love of God, through the gift of His son Jesus Christ...

August 5 at 1:11am No matter how many mission trips I go on, it always tugs on my heart when I'm able to see the beautiful face of a child and be able to make that child laugh and smile only because I let myself be used as a missionary in the hand of God to share his love and get me to experience a connection with that child even when we don't speak the same language, but understand each clearly because of the love of God that is shared between us.
