LOCATION: Honduras, Latin America & the Caribbean
TRANSFORMATIONAL IMPACT: My dream is to see God transform more lives through our Schools of Hope program in the public schools and communities in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. My greatest desire is to see more Hondurans leave poverty behind, as they are transformed through the gospel of Jesus Christ!
MINISTRY FOCUS: I live in a country that struggles with extreme poverty. With 48.3% of Hondurans living below the poverty line, many struggle to find hope and feel trapped in their poverty. More than half the population are children, often living in abject poverty.
As the director of the School of Hope, I, along with my team, minister in the public schools in our district. We teach Bible classes, while providing nutritional food support to the students, giving us the opportunity to share with over 8,500 children!
I also oversee our ChildCARE Plus sponsorships, which helps children achieve their academic goals and provides families a way out of poverty. By partnering with local communities, we bring necessities like water and sanitation into their homes and schools. I also mentor local Hondurans to become leaders in our ministry programs, while equipping them to expand said programs.
YOUR IMPACT: Your partnership will assist families break free from the poverty cycle and move forward, so that they can pursue higher levels of education and meaningful jobs. Ultimately, you can help create a better future for these families, as they fulfill their dreams and desires in Jesus Christ!
MINISTRY HISTORY: I served as a children’s pastor in Canada for over 17 years, working closely with families and their children. I mentored and trained many volunteer teams in various areas of ministry. I also had the opportunity to go on various missions’ trips around the world, where I experienced other cultures. This in turn expanded my worldview to see the world through a different lens.
- For God to provide the right team of people we need to expand our ministry.
- For God to transform the lives of the men, women, and children we reach through our various areas of ministry.
- For God to give me wisdom as I lead our team and for continued safety and protection in Honduras.
