We have lived and worked in Honduras for almost 19 years. That really makes me feel old! In that time, I have personally seen many amazing things. Things that literally changed my heart and mind toward people and the world around me. I have seen great acts of betrayal, greed, and abuse, but I have also seen what God can do with all of that. In 2016, I have to say I saw, and was able to be witness to an amazing series of events that increased my faith in God tremendously.
Hilda came to live with us when she was 12 years old, but before that she had already lived a lifetime. Hilda was born and raised in the mountain village of Las Delicias. It is at least an hour drive on horrible roads from anything that can be called civilization. All that Hilda could remember was her parents telling her that she and her sisters would go to live with these people that showed up at her village, because they were too poor to raise her. Hilda was put in a car, and driven away to 3 years of horrifying slavery! She was sure her parents sold her. Now she had to face them.
