Ministry Location: Honduras, Latin America
Ministry Focus: In August 2017, our family will be moving to Tegucigalpa, Honduras to work alongside Kathy Mizen, Dale & Carolyn Ruttan, and their growing team of Honduran staff at “Schools of Hope – Honduras”.
Michael will be stepping into the role of “Project Manager and Maintenance”. He will plan, organize and supervise any special projects, help maintain a safe and functional office space for staff, including maintenance of the feeding program kitchens, work with mission teams, and partner with community leaders for future projects that will benefit the community as a whole.
Trisha will become the “Financial Administrator”. She will develop and maintain bookkeeping records for all aspects of Schools of Hope including “Child CARE Plus” sponsorships, “ERDO In-School Feeding Program” and short-term mission teams, while training a Honduran to do the same task.
We have never considered ourselves as the “missionary type”, but great friends have consistently reminded us that “God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called”. Needless to say it was a bit of a surprise to our friends and family (and even us) when we said, “Yes, we are willing to go anywhere to love God and to love others...even Honduras!” Now we’re whole-heartedly trusting God to qualify us to be effective global workers, align all the details that a move to another country involves, and to provide the necessary finances to accomplish this task.
