Kara Thompson de Mejia and Family.
Serving the Lord in Roatan, Honduras.
Please pray for our family and for our ministry with the church in Roatán.
We are are grateful for Kara’s birthday on August 24th, and we ask your prayers for
Kelly’s birthday on Sept. 25th and Stephen’s on October 4th.
May God continue to richly bless them.
Our first Anniversary
It is a year already since we moved to our own property, and we are counting our blessings.
We bought the land, we moved there, a month later we built a shelter, before Christmas
we installed water and electricity, in January we built a shed and a room for a caretaker,
after we went on to build a septic system. Not only that, in the first week of May
we started to see our dream take shape as we started construction on the church building
for Emmanuel Church in Coxen Hole.
August 22nd – 24th we celebrated this first anniversary and it was really
a blessing to get together both congregations, Coxen Hole and Brick Bay.
We focused every day on preaching on the family to empower listeners to walk in the love of Jesus Christ.
The many activities included worship, music, drama, dance, singing,
and a preacher every day, one from the island, and the other from a Episcopal Church on the mainland.
On the last day, the Rev. Nelson preached.
We ended our anniversary activities on the 24th of August with a family day
and traditional games that we all enjoyed.
Two women, one from Coxen Hole Church and one from Brick Bay,
went with the Rev. Kara to attend the Cursillo weekend on the mainland.
They came back on fire to enroll in church activities and filled with the love of Jesus.
Also, a girl from the church in Brick Bay went with the Rev. Kara to serve on the team at the
Happening weekend and another young girl went to participate for the first time.
ONGOING CONSTRUCTION IN ROATAN
It is always a blessing being a part of the Roatán Church project.
We continued the construction till the first week in August, and we are
very happy with the progress obtained so far.
The Roatán team worked with courage and they are looking forward
to continuing the work early next year. We have attached few pictures of the construction.
A Home for a Church Family
God is so good and always provides for the people in need.
At the end of July a family from our church congregation received a home.
through a nonprofit organization called Dwellings.
Martha and her family had been praying for a long time.
They said, “It is a miracle; GOD answered our prayer and we are very grateful.
Now we have a home, and we pray for those who do not have one.
” This was arranged through the Episcopal Church.
A Great Story
We always welcome new visitors to the congregtion of Emmanuel Church in Coxen Hole.
A mother was introducing herself and her 12-year-old daughter
and then she pointed out a 6-year-old boy and said,
“and this is my son, Andy Jackson, who brought us to church tonight!”
We all applauded. It is amazing what a child can do for the Kingdon of God.
This boy lives close to the church, and I imagined him walking past it so many times,
wondering which Sunday he and his family could attend.
We are very happy with the new Sunday school shelter;
it is nice for the children to have their own space.
