There is so much more that could be said about the remainder of the trip to Honduras but time and current responsibilities keep us from doing so. However, we know that God must receive the glory for all that was done during our work with the Sumner families and Light of Life Youth Camp.
One cannot work with the Sumner Families and not be greatly challenged to give more time and effort in the work of God. Their ministry spans nearly the entire country of Honduras. Their outreach touches every military base in the country, and locally through their church and soup kitchen. The life of a missionary seems grand and glorious but until one has spent personal time on a field then the daily hardships and trials will not be realized. The work is of great importance but is strengthened through perseverance and faithfulness. Prayer and support is so appreciated by those who sacrificially give of themselves by serving on a foreign land.
Problem after problem seemed to hinder our journey to the camp in Tegucigalpa but once we finally arrived we knew that it was all worth the fight. Every service and class was powerful and blessed by God. It was a busy and full schedule, which made the week pass very quickly. The campers were divided into 4 groups, which were used for contests, games, and competition.
By Thursday evening, there were approx. 15 that received salvation and 2 that were filled with the Holy Ghost. Gloria Dios! 1 in particular was noticeably changed within a 2-day period. Spencer was from Roatan Island and attended the youth camp with the Trawick's. His attitude seemed arrogant and self-assured at the beginning of the week but when he stood up in front of the congregation to testify after receiving Christ on Wednesday, he couldn't speak for nearly 3 minutes from crying. It took him about 10 minutes to give God praise and paused several times to catch his falling tears. It was a very moving time. The next day his attitude and expression were totally changed. He was a completely different person. Several others stood up and testified of receiving salvation. It was a very quiet hour as they all were broken over God's grace and mercy in their lives. No words can describe that time and no pics or videos were taken because it was such a tender time.
We are witnesses of the fact that God is still working miracles in the lives of young people across this world.
