Pray for Eye Clinics in 2017

Precious and Honored

Recently the Sky Pratt Team helped us in our Eye Clinic. Team members asked questions of each person. "Do you have problems seeing things in the distance? Do you have trouble reading or threading a needle?" they asked. As I watched I realized we were doing so much more than giving out glasses or eye drops or sunglasses. We were telling each person that we valued them as  God's creation. One lady in her 90's began to share that her problem was not with her eyes but her legs hurt every night when she tried to rest.  We listened and prayed even though there were at least 100 waiting to come to the Eye Clinic.  Sometimes we all just want to know that someone is willing to listen and to care about how we feel. I began to thank the Lord that He values each and every one of  us. Isaiah 43 starts out in verse 1, "But now, this is what the Lord says-- he who created you, he who formed you; I have summoned you by name and you are mine."   Then verse 4 goes on, "Since you are precious and honored in my sight and because I love you."  Many times we are simply conveying to people that they are valued by us but even more importantly they are precious and honored and valued by God, the creator of the universe. 



Prayer with each person because they are valued

Of Great Value to God

Construction: but so much more

Each time teams serve in Guaimaca they are telling people that they have value. Construction projects as simple as putting a cement floor in a home  are affirming to families that they are loved and valued by God.

Hands for Jesus Christian School

School is in full swing at Hands for Jesus. We have 122 students enrolled this year. Many have sponsors and there are many on a waiting list. Pray with us that the school will grow not only in number but in the knowledge of the Lord. Pray for our teachers and our students.

Prayer Requests

Pray that we allow ourselves to convey to each person their value to God

Pray for our health and the well being of our family back in the states.

Pray that He alone will be glorified in all we say and do.


Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work.

We are ever thankful for you that have been willing to come along beside us in our work here in Honduras. We always love hearing from you and covet your prayers. Thank you prayer partners for loving and supporting us.
