Mortensons’ November Letter

November 2020

Dear Family and Friends,

Greetings from Honduras once again.  Thank you so much for your faithful prayers for our family.  We arrived back in Honduras on October 16th without new complications.  With the security measures that Honduras has in place to combat COVID-19, we all had to present negative test results at each of our flights as well as fill out several new forms for screening at the boarder/immigration.  We also were blessed that God gave us grace in the eyes of the customs agent who initially wanted to charge us import fees because of having several non-clothing items in our luggage.

It has been so good to get back into routines here.  Cori and the kids are back to a normal homeschool schedule and Cori and I are continuing discipleship classes with the young people we are discipling.

We also want to praise the Lord for His blessing as we were able to start back to in-person services again on Sundays.  We are looking forward to having all of our services back to normal but praise the Lord for what He is enabling us to do little by little.  With chairs spaced out to make us about 50% (pre-pandemic) capacity we are already full and the communion with the family of God has been wonderful.

I think that everyone has loved praising the Lord together in song, and it has been wonderful to see the evidence of spiritual growth in several people’s lives.  For example, the last 3 Sundays we have had candidates for baptism.  All of them made decisions to trust Christ pre-pandemic, and wanted to make that decision public as they have grown in the Lord.  Also, 2 weeks ago, we had a man trust Christ as his Savior.  He had visited the church sporadically in the years prior, and had been watching our on-line services.  While many normal church activities are still on pause, God remains faithful and at work in hearts.  What a privilege to serve our sovereign Savior.

Thank you again for your faithful prayers, may the Lord continue to bless you all as we serve Him together.

From Honduras,
Nate and Cori with Mykenzie, Grant, Blake and Savanna
