   Honduras has been on my heart lately. After reading about the many unaccompanied children crossing our southern boarder I did some research that goes beyond what the news media reports. What I discovered was that this is not a sudden spike. The numbers of children coming here have been increasing over the last several years.
   Many of these children are fleeing violence and extreme poverty. These children are coming from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. With most coming from Honduras. In many areas of Honduras gangs have crippled the communities. Simply walking on the wrong street can get one killed. These gangs are attempting to force children into joining them and selling drugs. If they refuse they will be killed. Honduras has the highest murder rate of any country on the planet. The conditions are bleak.
    God is leading me to do something for the children in Honduras. I am not sure yet what all that will entail, but I am considering a mission trip. Pray with me as I pray about the direction I need to take. I am consulting my Pastor and several other friends and will keep you posted.
Starting today I am sponsoring a child in Honduras through Compassion International. Here is a picture of that young man. His name is Otoniel. His is 6 years old and likes soccer and cars.

   I encourage you to consider sponsoring a child in need. It only cost $38 per month and will change their life. In case you wonder if this really does make a difference watch the video below.

  1. According to this nice story in The Hustle, Jarecki discovered that roulette wheels, like all different mechanical units, demonstrated wear and tear after a period of time. These tiny defects — "chips, dents, scratches, unlevel surfaces — might cause sure wheels to land on sure numbers extra frequently than randomicity prescribed." The 666 technique is one of the|is among the|is probably certainly one of the} roulette strategies you should to} avoid at all prices. It's an costly method to play roulette (you want at least of|no much less than} $66 per spin) and it does not supply nice possibilities to win. Although these roulette bets do not result in mind-blowing wins, preserving 다파벳 your bets on the odds/even, red/black, and high/low provides you the best possibilities to score a win. The odds get considerably worse when you determine to play on an American roulette wheel.
