An Urgent Need In Honduras

Since the Fall our mission team in Honduras has been constructing a ministry center in the super poor neighborhood of La Isla in downtown La Ceiba. On this property we are building a high school, a medical clinic, a church, a center for homeless kids, a theological seminary and a dorm for short-term mission teams.

We are on a time crunch and we need your help. Our desire is to complete the first floor of the dorm building before June 4th so that when our first mission team of the Summer arrives they can sleep there. We are scheduled to host 10 mission teams from the U.S. this summer. If we don’t get this dorm ready by June 4th each team will sleep in our personal home with us. We are asking you to prayerfully consider giving a one-time financial gift to help us meet this urgent need.

Hosting short-term mission teams from the U.S. is a great benefit to our ministry. In the past those teams have shared our home with us, including our small kitchen and two bathrooms. We have simultaneously hosted up to 20 people in wooden bunk beds in our home. This new dorm will provide more space for those visiting missionaries and a little bit of breathing room for us.

Thank you so much your prayers and support.
