On our two-acre plot of land in Armenia Bonito we are building a church building for our first Honduran church plant, the First Presbyterian Church of La Cieba. We have now started simultaneous construction on a parsonage for the pastor of that church. The pastor’s house will be located just 100 feet behind the church. When the house finished pastor Jesús and his six-person family will move in. In the picture to the left John and pastor Jesús are marking the location of the house.
For fear of upsetting economic equilibrium, our ministry will maintain ownership of the house. The person occupying the position of pastor will be able to live rent free in the home as long as they are serving the church.
The modest three bedroom, one bath house will be 660 sq. ft. and will come with running water and electricity. It will have a concrete floor, cinderblock walls and a tin roof. The home will be equivalent to a midlevel house in the community.
Scriptures tell us we are to honor and care for the servants the Lord has provided for us (1 Corinthians 9:14, 1 Timothy 5:17, Hebrews 13:17). Pray this is a home that brings great glory to the Lord. Thanks to our fellow servants at Meadowview Reformed Presbyterian Church for making this parsonage a reality.
