STANFORD - Members of a Stanford Baptist Church mission group returned this week from a 10-day trip to Honduras. While they were working to help others, participants of the mission said they were actually the ones blessed.
"We think we're going to help them, but they you're humbled to the point where you see the world as Jesus wants you to," said missionary and youth minister Aaron Stamper. "... There's nothing that can describe going and loving somebody."
The group stayed in a hotel in La Entrada, Honduras and used the trip to visit local schools and make repairs at a Youth for Christ Camp.
At the schools, the group helped with bible study and prayer. The missionaries also helped run a vacation bible school.
It was wonderful how receptive the schools were to the missionaries, said Stamper, "how appreciative (the children) are of things."
"It's amazing when you have and entire school bent in prayer," added Stamper. "...In our case, the missionaries, we're the ones that get the blessing."
