Pastor Ludy and his wife, Mordicia, have been serving the people of the Mosquito Coast for many years. Even though Ludy grew up in the area of Raya and Benk, it was a huge adjustment for even him to move from the city back to the bush. After a few years in La Ceiba, he and his wife felt lead to return and establish a church in Raya. That church is now being pastored by his father, Don Marcos, and Ludy has since planted several other churches and home fellowships in the vicinity. Ludy spends much of his time teaching and sharing. Wednesdays are Bible study days. o a group of men, Ludy teaches throughout the day, sharing who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him. He also shares how to teach the Bible and how to disciple others.
As we look ahead to the 2013 medical trip, we are excited to see how things are shaping up. We will be returning to Benk to serve the people of pastor Ludy’s church as well as the community in which he lives. For lack of time, we had to leave the church we started partially completed.
The people of the church completed the walls, put the roof on and finished other details in the last year. This year, we will conduct another clinic, possibly in the same building. The construction part of the trip has yet to be finalized… Matt is discussing options with Ludy presently. I will keep you posted when I hear more.
the long flights and waiting in airports is the difficult part. Its all downhill from here!
