A letter from one of our founders
Welcome to our journey of relentless grace.
Welcome to this crazy, unpredictable and amazing adventure God has prepared for us. There’s no doubt that Grace Honduras was born foremost in God’s heart. During the past six years I’ve seen His faithfulness, goodness, mercy but above all His love for children in Honduras.
Our command is: Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31: 8-9
Jesus is calling all of us to live a life of full dependence and trust in His ways, path in which He’s more interested in our heart than our plans. When our relationship with The Creator grows, so does His heart in ours, changing and molding us into what He prepared us to become to fulfill His purpose. Even though we may feel inadequate or unworthy of serving Him, he reminds us that He will always come back to us. He will always search for us when we feel lost and insecure, and asks us to << approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. >>
Don’t worry about making mistakes; God still uses flawed humans to change the world. That’s why He reminds us “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” We want to spread grace around the world, reminding everyone about God’s mighty hand ready to help us in times of need, God knows we can’t walk on water on our own, but He still wants us to get out of the boat and trust Him.
"There is no passion to be found in playing it small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." – Nelson Mandela
We encounter His plans outside of our comfort zone; it’s about leaving behind our plans and embracing God’s bigger, better and bolder plans for our lives. God wouldn’t take all the glory if what He calls us to do wouldn’t be impossible for us. God’s calling is always bigger than we ever imagine, it exceeds our capacities, abilities and resources. But God is not asking how big our bank account is, He’s asking: “How big is your faith?”
Grace Honduras Team will always try to spread His grace, mercy and love. Even though we might fail, our calling remains.
Every single day I asked God, “Why not me? I’m not different than them, I could easily be placed to live in a family living in extreme poverty, You could did that easily” Truth is, we are the same, but I do believe God picked me to be “on the other side” to do something for them. So it’s my responsibility to honor God and life by serving those in need.
“Start by doing what’s necessary, then what’s possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible”.
