What are we doing
Reliance is a church plant, and that means there is not a lot of money in our bank account, we are small, we are starting out and rely on a lot of help from the outside sources that have chosen to support us for a while. We are so very grateful that God allowed this and continues to be the great orchestrator for the things we need.
Having said that, a lot of church plants do not go on mission trips because the church plant is the mission. We are missionaries basically out our front door in Florida. While we have studied Acts before as a core group before we ever came to Florida, we recently studied it again.
Through much prayer, a trip out of our area is what we feel led to do. To help someone else to further God's kingdom, and we need all the prayer and support we can get, though I know God will provide !!
We had our first real meeting the other week for the mission trip to Honduras. While it was much needed, it became real in the fact that "we are doing this".
Reliance got to meet the founder of Finding Hope Honduras Katlyn McConnell and listen to her vision first hand, and it got real.
While many people go on the mainstream mission trips where you have nice posh accommodations, and hot water, well it looks like we are definitely going third world with this. She is in a remote area, about 3 hours from civilization.
Since I am taking 2 children with me, I got a little anxious when it became real that there were no hospitals nearby ( 3hrs away) and we would be kinda roughing it for a week.
After I had this moment of worry and concern, I calmed down and remembered that God's got this. I must place my trust in him and rest assured that he will take care of me and my family as we travel and do work for him.
Sometimes in all things we do, whether it is traveling to a remote area or even working at a job with sick people sometimes infected with unknown germs, God is in control. Believe in what you do and have faith that whatever happens God has it in His hands, He has You in his hands and he loves you.
Please continue to pray for us and support monetarily if God leads you to !!
