Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,
The next time I write to you it will be from Honduras. It has been an amazing journey across this country. It has been a blessing to see the godly examples of soul-winning and missions. I truly believe that reaching people is God’s greatest priority. Thank you to everyone that has helped us along the way. We can say that the blessings have far outweighed the challenges that we faced.
We arrived to the States on August 29, 2012 and we will be leaving June 27, 2013. I want to give a brief overview of our journey so far. In ten months we have spent $4,417.03 in gas, $5,891.71 in hotels, we have traveled 35,378 miles, and we have spent $6,050 in food. This does not include a lot of the other miscellaneous items that we have had to purchase. We count it a privilege to serve the King of kings and for His safety during these months.
Our two goals for furlough were to raise our support level and to raise money for our building project in Honduras. Praise the Lord we have had a significant increase in our support level. This will enable us to do more for the ministry in Honduras. We have raised $5,000 and still need $45,000 to complete our building project. Please seriously pray that we would be able to raise this amount. I would like to purchase the property and start building by the end of January. This building would also be used for our future Christian School. When we return, we will be starting an institute to train men and women for the ministry. The people have never been part of anything like this, they are just watching. Part of the money will be raised also by the people in Campamento. I want to make sure that they have a part in it also. There are a lot more things that we have planned, but we need this building to do those things.
Thank you to everyone that has helped us to make our furlough successful. Thank you to the churches that have stuck with us since deputation and to the “new” churches that have taken us on for support this furlough. If you are ever considering a missions trip, please keep us in mind. We look forward to see God continue to work and fruit that may abound to your account.
Your missionary to Honduras,
