THE HOPE OF JESUS MISSION TRIP
“DECLARE HIS GLORY AMONG ALL NATIONS, HIS MARVELOUS DEED AMONG ALL PEOPLES.” 1 Chronicles 16:24
On August 15th, our mission team traveled to The Hope Of Jesus Children’s Home in El Venado, Honduras. It included Bruce & Phyllis Ehlers, Sheryl & Davis Maddux, Regine Johnson, Doris Gainey & Joe Redgate. The home is operated by SAMS missionaries, Mike & Kim Miller.
Our week consisted of sharing the love of Jesus in crafts, music, birthday parties & soccer games with the 16 children who reside at the home. We were blessed by a special worship service on Wednesday night lead by the children. Their love of Jesus was truly evident. On Sunday we worshiped at the local Anglican church.
We traveled to several remote villages, many without running water or electricity bringing water filters and medication to those infected with Leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease spread by the bite of infected sand flies. The village had eight cases.
We worked alongside some local Hondurans to construct a greenhouse on the property of the children’s home which will be used to grow fruits, vegetables and coffee beans to support the needs of the children.
Our experiences were many and we saw God’s presence in every aspect of our trip. We pray for the people of Honduras and for Mike & Kim as they continue their mission to glorify God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
