We were both called into missions in our teen years. God has given us a passion to serve the people of Honduras for the past forty years. We have seen people’s lives transformed from lives of hopelessness to lives that are a vibrant testimony that exhibit a desire to serve God with all their heart. We are especially motivated by learning about how several people who came to the Lord early in our career are now serving in different areas of ministry as pastors, educators, and business owners. The people of Honduras have become our family.

Nearly everything we do involves education in one way or another. Two out of every three Hondurans between the ages of 15 and 17 are not in school. Most of them do not have jobs. During the first twenty years of our ministry with World Gospel Mission in Honduras, we served at Escuela El Sembrador (the Farm School), in the areas of farming, gardening, nursing, discipleship, and evangelistic teaching to over 200 boarding students and area communities. God then called us to Choluteca after Hurricane Mitch, where we have participated in a regional team that has established eight church congregations. The team started a vocational school which serves over 200 students annually throughout the region. More recently we helped start a new level of high school nursing education approved by the Ministry of Education in Honduras.

The education institutions that we have served at continue to reach out to the disadvantaged in Honduras. Escuela El Sembrador is a model high school for preparing future leaders. The Choluteca Vocational School provides job skills for youth. The Choluteca Nursing School is the first of its kind in Honduras and is helping prepare nurses who will help transform health care in Honduras.

Since we have moved from Honduras prior to the COVID-19 crisis, we are now involved in a more global outreach (including Honduras), with the Americas Region Team, serving in North, Central, and South Americas. God still has a plan for our lives and that plan involves continuing to love God with ‘all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength’ and ‘to love your neighbor as yourself’ (Mark 12:30, 31 NIV). The way we go about ministering to others may change, but our mandate is the same. Our intent as a team is to come alongside missionaries in other countries and other global workers to facilitate their efforts in all areas of ministry. Our accumulated skills, talents, and knowledge will be used on a regional scale. We expect that by working as a team, the impact across the region will be much greater than the sum of our individual efforts if we were each working independently.
