Meet Our Teammate: John Clow

John at workJohn and his family arrived in La Ceiba in May of 2010. He and his wife Kathy joined our team for four years, but they are here for the long haul. John earned a degree in Welding Engineering from LeTourneau University and he grew up in Clute, Texas.

Before serving fulltime in Honduras John and his family had served as fulltime missionaries in Reynosa, Mexico since 2002. In Mexico they worked alongside the Isaiah 55 Deaf Ministries where John hosted short-term mission teams and coordinated construction efforts.

John is gifted in the areas of giving, mercy, service and compassion. The Lord has been preparing John for years for his work in Honduras. He serves as our construction and building coordinator in La Ceiba. John is instrumental in working with the many short-term teams we host and directing our Honduran construction workers.

Our team and the people of Honduras are very fortunate to have John serving in La Ceiba. He genuinely loves serving others. John has a great knowledge and understanding of construction, building and design. He uses these gifts to provide Christ’s mercy and justice to the poor.

Please pray for John and his family as they approach their two-year anniversary of serving by our sides in Honduras.
