Letter from the Mission Field (July 1, 2016)

It has been very busy here.  In January, the beginning of the school year in Honduras, we supported five poor children in the mountains around Tegucigalpa  and two in Copan Ruinas, as part of the Ministry of Presence. We helped them with school costs such as books, uniforms, and  school fees.  Our goal is to maintain a relationship and continue supporting them until they graduate.
In April, I had the opportunity to attend the New Wineskins Conference for Anglican missionaries around the world, held in Asheville, N.C.   It was a very inspiring time. Back in Honduras, I have been nursing two churches toward completion.  Buen Pastor Church (Good Shepherd) in Santa Maria has just been completed and consecrated by Bishop Lloyd Allen on June 26, 2016.   See the articles below.
Emmanuel Church in Roatàn moves forward with the installation of a new roof.  That in itself was a challenge.   The boat carrying the steel set sail at night in a storm and foundered on a reef outside of La Ceiba harbor.…

Consecration of Buen Pastor (Good Shepherd) Church

Bishop Allen came to Santa Maria, located close the Nicaraguan border,  to consecrate Buen Pastor Church on Sunday, June 26, 2016.   Three local churches, a mission team from Florida and people from the town came to the event. An estimated five hundred (500) people attended the service. Thirty six (36) people were confirmed or received into the church.   Here are some picture of the event.
