Voila! Tortilla Tuesday- Breakfast Burrito Style!
Mmmm Mmmm good! :)
Well we had good intentions of making today an ALL DAY Tortilla Tuesday, but you know how days go, and we ended up doing it for lunch because breakfast came and went and dinner plans are already taken. (If you have no idea what I am talking about, see this post about Tortilla Tuesday)
We gathered to have breakfast burritos (for lunch) and I brought my laptop to the kitchen so we could watch a few of the Lifesong Honduras videos together and read about the children in Honduras. (Look closely and you can see Edmund on the computer)
We prayed for the orphans and for those at Lifesong Honduras who are caring for the children and families
And as we ate our meal with tortillas, we remembered how very blessed we are and talked about the fact that even though we love tortillas, it would be kind of boring to only have that with every meal.
We talked about how we are spoiled with being able to have all kids of different foods depending on what mood we are in. On any given week we can have BBQ, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Mexican, or American food! What a simple way to stop and think about how the rest of the world lives and to be able to take one day to pray for kids like Edmund and Edgar in Honduras and ask God how we can sacrifice something to be able to give to those who are in need.
If you missed out or forgot about Tortilla Tuesday (like I almost did!)- it's not too late! Either get some rice and beans and tortillas together for a super easy dinner tonight, or take the time to do it tomorrow and talk about it with your family. Lifesong has gotten over 30 commitments so far- I would love to see them reach their goal of
What difference does Lifesong Honduras really make in the lives of the 550 students we work with?
2011 Vision Team member, Brian Kerz, speaks from what he saw first hand:
Isn't teaching the gospel message really what it's all about? And after leaving Lifesong Honduras to live on their own, 90% of Escalon graduates still consider themselves Christians and 85% continue to attend church on a regular basis!
Lives are being changed. Lives can continue to change because of the difference being made by people like you!
