Ministry Monday Week #5: 2013 Recap

I'm so excited to be blogging again and I'm really enjoying the Ministry Monday idea.  I'm looking forward to sharing some of the new ministries we are involved in this year and updates on old ministries, but first I wanted to share a recap of last year.  So buckle your seat belts, we certainly lived up to the "wandering" part of our name.  I hope it was "purposeful" also.  

I started 2013 sleeping through the fireworks in a small, remote town sandwiched between the Caribbean Sea and the Honduran jungle.  Yep!  You read that right.  January of last year I had the opportunity to work with an OB/GYN at a remote mission hospital on the coast of Honduras.  I would like to think I was a help.  It was an amazing opportunity and experience and I did get invited back.  That has to be a good sign.  Thank you to all the staff at Hospital Loma de Luz for all the compassionate work you are doing to shine the light and love of Jesus.

February found us happily back together as a family and Sam in the midst of the second semester of the small bible institute he has gotten to play a part in starting.  He taught "Basic Principles of Biblical Interpretation" (that's a fancy way to say "how to study the Bible") and acts as organizer and administrator for the institute.  A job he is very suited for due to his various positions in the Army.  No doubt he will have a great system in place by the time we are ready to move on from here.  It is hard to believe that in three semesters the first students will be graduating.  

See you tomorrow for March and April 2013 Update and an awesome giveaway!


  1. Hi Carie,
    I haven't met you but I'm here in Oaxaca, too. Is this the hospital in Balfate, about an hour outside of La Ceiba? I've been there--my kind of adopted sister-in-law works there. Chrysti (Reeck) Andino. What a small world!

    1. Julie- Yes! The hospital in Balfate where Chrysti works! I promised her that I would bring mole next time. :) Hope to meet you sometime. Carie


Thank you for taking a moment to share your thoughts with me.
