As I prepared for this trip one of my biggest concerns was that I didn’t have a trade that would be of use. You have carpenters, plumbers, electricians, doctors, nurses, etc., all of whom can be of great use in any of the areas we have visited here in Honduras. What is a little hairstylist from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, going to be able to offer to these beautiful people in need of so much.
As I reflected on this, I searched the scriptures, looking up every verse that had to do with service. These two scriptures were perfect.
Ephesians 6:7 says, “Serve wholeheartedly as if you were serving the Lord, not men.”
Romans 12:12-13 says, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”
So I came here with the with the goal of serving in any manner I could physically handle, whether it was my trade or not. Little did I know that I would be blessed to meet Keicy and have the privilege of helping her learn more about the cosmetology trade while serving the precious people of Olivos. My heart was completely full. Not only did I get to help in many ways, and love on some amazing people, I actually had the opportunity to share my skills to help better someone so special. My cup runneth over.
