I've been fortunate to find myself emailing with Ambrocio, a Honduran national leader in missions. It has been so exciting to communicate and develop a relationship knowing our families will finally meet this summer.
I don't speak any Spanish and his English is limited, but Google Translate has been our saving grace! I take his Spanish message and out pops an English translation. I type in English and I'm given a fresh Spanish version to send. I don't know what we'll do when face-to-face without our internet, but for now we communicate quite effectively.
I've recently learned that the village we are traveling to is in need of dental supplies. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, fluoride rinse. But also an electric sterilizer for dental instruments and even a "portable patient chair" is needed. The first part of the list seems doable, the last couple items ... well, I'm anxious to see how God provides. Who knows how to get a dental chair down to Honduras, much less how to acquire one cheaply!
Pray with us. Won't it be fun to find out the answer?
