Dear Pastor and Prayer Supporter,
4th Quarter Update
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” ” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:58
What Have We Been Doing:
Towards the end of October after our home church missions conference, my oldest son, Dakota, and myself flew to Honduras to work on completing one of the staff-housing cabins located on the Conference Facility. The outside of the cabin was completed before we arrived, but it was just the shell, as the interior was unfinished and needed much work. We were there for almost two months completing the inside (ceiling, floors, cabinetry, furniture, paint, fixtures, etc.) and praise the Lord we were able to finalize about 98% before we needed to fly back home. It was quite difficult to work on a construction project when the nearest well-stocked hardware store (similar to a Lowe’s) was located about 2 hours one way! Dakota and I had much practice “thinking outside the box” since there were many supplies we could not acquire there in Honduras. We are so thankful that we have the privilege to work alongside veteran missionary Jason Tate as he was a HUGE help in this project.
Also, while there in Honduras, we were able to help unload one of the 20ft containers from BLMF that were filled with Spanish New Testaments. Those New Testaments were quickly distributed to the police departments, the military, as well as other local pastors who needed Bibles. We also had the privilege to preach and teach at some of the local churches, though through an interpreter. It was a blessing to participate in some of the special music for the Christmas services as well. Despite all this, after 8 weeks, we were excited to get back to the rest of the family as we prepare to leave together later this month.
While we were ministering there in Honduras, my wife, daughter, and youngest son were involved in our sending church in Tacoma, Washington, through special music, student teaching in the Christian school, and helping with a variety of projects.
We fly out as a family to Honduras on Jan 25th, where we settle into our temporary home at the Conference Facility. Although our official language school does not begin until the fall of 2022, we will still be taking language classes (with the help missionary Jason Tate) in the months leading up to that. Brayden, our youngest son, will have the opportunity to visit Honduras for the first time, and we are very excited for the entire family to be there together.
- Please pray that we continue to see more souls saved and added to the church at the ministries in Honduras.
- We have been working tirelessly on securing two containers (to ship both ministry and personal supplies) for over 6 months now–to no avail. Due to container shortages and port back logs, it has been a challenge to accomplish this.
Please pray the Lord would open the door to get the containers there and that we would stay sensitive to His timing on getting our belongings there.
Thank you once again for your continued faithfulness!
For His Glory,
The Lane Family I Cor 16:9
