Our teammate Kate deFuniak is leaving Team Honduras to return to her home in Alabama. Three years ago Kate moved to Honduras to help us begin a StreetChild ministry to serve the homeless and near homeless kids of La Ceiba. Kate left a comfortable home, a family and a teaching job in the US to dedicate three years of her life to kids she never met.
Shortly after arriving in La Ceiba Kate started the Peter Project. She hired Honduran staff and began a daily ministry to meet the physical and spiritual needs of kids living on the streets.
Kate posses a rare level of compassion for the hurt and forgotten. She spent three years showing God’s grace, mercy and justice to kids most of us would try to ignore. Kate greatly stretched herself and made herself uncomfortable so others could feel love.
Because of Kate dozens of children learned about Christ, read the Bible, received meals, memorized Scripture, received new clothes, heard Bible stories, received medical care and prayed in the name of Jesus.
Thank you Kate for your sacrificial giving to Hondurans and missionaries and for allowing the glory of Christ to shine brightly.
