Believe it or not we will be loading a plane in under 40 days to put on our very first Dream On Party (La Gran Fiesta De Los Suenos) in San Pedro Sula Honduras. For those who don’t know this has been a dream of Ben and I (as well as the rest of our team) for many years. I must admit the task at times as felt impossible but we all know what God has to say about the impossible. See, it is very easy to allow your mind to accept normal. It certainly is not normal for 2 kids in their 20’s to plan a youth crusade for 10,000 people in another country. I mean how many of those do you know? But the life of a dreamer, recognizes and accepts that with God literally NOTHING is impossible. This journey has taught us a deeper understanding of God’s dreams and purposes in our lives, his provision and his love for us.
I fully believe that the hardest step of a dreamer is the next one. It’s easy to look back and see how easy the previous ones were, because you know the outcome. It’s the next step that truly defines your faith and your life as a dreamer. Ben and I had absolutely no clue how Honduras would turn out. In fact our original vision for it was significantly smaller than what it is turning out to be. But when you serve a BIG God, were learning that our big dreams are often small in the eyes of a BIG God.
With just under 40 days till we leave, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are believing God to bring 100 mission balls. We have currently raised 45 balls and are nearly half way to our goal. One ball is just $10 and has the gospel written all over them. They are super cool and let me tell you, a soccer ball is one of the best toys a kid can have in Honduras. Don’t believe me, watch this video as it shows the kids playing with a deflated kick ball. We also are looking to give away some bikes, t-shirts, glow sticks and more. We also have 2 suitcases full of tennis shoes that someone graciously donated. Over 200 brand new pairs of shoes! I’m asking you to prayerfully consider your next step. It might not be throwing a huge party for 10,000 kids in the murder capital of the world. But your next step is important to God. It might be donating $10 for a soccer ball, donating a bike or whatever it might be. The important thing is that you are actually taking your next step.
