Greetings from Texas & Honduras!
I pray all had a blessed Christmas season with family and friends. I have enjoyed worshiping in a Rite I service with an organ and incense. It has been a semi-relaxing time visiting family. I have not been able to read as planned, however I’ve stayed busy helping my parents with handyman needs around the house. Mothers, Grandmothers and Great-Grandmothers deserve sainthood and more. I base this on being around 2 & 3 year old brothers. Need I say more? I will fly back to Honduras by the 15th of January. It will be the start of my sixth year serving!! However, I will return home for part of Lent and Easter. I have an ecumenical team looking to serve in March or April. They are a great group to be around, work hard. and they do everything they can to GIVE HOPE to those they are serving. They truly are a model of success for short term missions. Throughout the year they support the areas they work in. Rigoberto, my former student at St John’s school is continuing his Leukemia treatment and was able to come visit his 7th grade classmates! He is being treated by the Children’s Cancer Foundation at no cost to his family other than travel and incidentals.
The General Elections were more peaceful than predicted. Honduras had the highest voter turnout in its history and elected its first female President. The Inauguration will be held on January 27th. One downside to elections is that in all levels of government work, many employees are from a “party” so it is not uncommon to have turnover when there are “party” changes.
If you recall in the Spring of 2020, with your generosity, we built a real bathroom and kitchen for Francisco, Gloria and their five kids. Before I left, I purchased more cement for Francisco to make the kitchen floor smooth/polished since we could not afford ceramic. He’s also cut the grass for me while I have been gone. Aquiles and his family of 8 are in need of a real bathroom. They are on their second outhouse and well, it is nearing its life cycle. The plan is to first dig and construct a proper septic, then start building a full bathroom onto their house. Eventually no more outhouse or outdoor shower.
Last quarter, specifically end of year giving has drastically decreased. Many citing pandemic related concerns. I can relate. The ministry currently has a small debt that we hope to dissolve by this first quarter. By January 31st we need to raise a minimum of $2500 to go to three specific needs; 1. Three used laptops for students in need, 2.Bathroom and septic materials for construction and 3. A security camera system with all related tubing to weatherproof the cabling.
Because of YOUR LOVE AND GENEROUS GIFTS, we’ve accomplished great things from feeding the hungry, providing clean water and construction projects to improve homes. You have allowed us to continue to serve the underserved.
PRAISES: God’s love and providence!
PRAYER REQUESTS: Peace, health and safety. God’s abundant providence for 2022 projects and beyond!
If GIVING HOPE to others is something that speaks to your heart, or you want to honor someone, the giving instructions are below. When giving through the NGO, we ask that you specify it is for the COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ministry fund so we only incur a 3% processing fee versus the normal 6% for General Fund donations. Unspecified funds will go in the General Fund for living expenses and emergency needs. NGO gifts must be received by January 17 to be disbursed on February 1st.
PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER A MINIMUM $60 FINANCIAL GIFT, to celebrate the completion of 60 months of serving and a new beginning in year 6. For gifts NOT requiring a tax donation, please use my personal PayPal at paypal.me/ChasingGod. I will receive these gifts in 1-3 days. For TAX DEDUCTIBLE gifts please mail a check, made in the name of and sent to: Running For Him 24-7 Ministries, 255 Pleasant Dr., Aliquippa, PA 15001 and include a separate note that it is for me (David Ledwitz 43025). I can also provide a link to give tax deductible gifts online if you prefer that method. Please email or text me if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you.
Faithfully, your brother in Christ,
David Ledwitz, Missionary/Servant
