Walking in Orange walk
Koinonia, the Spanish church we attend Sunday afternoons (after having Deaf church) has a missions team. The team was sent out this past Wednesday and Thursday. Koinonia was a church started from humble beginnings. They began as a ministry exclusively for children. If we are honest they are pretty unique in that realm here in Orange Walk. This was one of the huge draws for us. As more children came, their parents wanted to come to church there. The church began to meet.

Pastor Ed's passion is to see children change the world. They do children's ministry. Another part of their calling is to train others to reach children. They do several trainings a year at the church.
The mission trip involves them going to countries in Central America and training the churches to do children's ministry.
Selah's comment was about the people in Koinonia who stayed. She thought they should be thanked. Staying is a difficult job. There was a blog post I once read which talked about the friends and family left behind. They are the ones who must continue, who must love from afar, who get the "unexciting" parts of the ministry.
We want to thank you for being the ones who volunteer to stay. We could not do what we do without you.
