Take A Moment And Pray

Would you take just a couple of minutes out of your busy day and pray for each of the members of our mission team by name?

Team HondurasThere is nothing earth shattering or urgent that needs to be addressed today. Our team is very busy and I know they would love to know you are praying for them. We were called to go and you are called to pray (James 5:16, 1 Timothy 2:1, Colossians 1:9 and Romans 15:30). We’d love it if you’d pray for each person, their physical, emotional, and spiritual health and their ministry.

The Clow family. John and Kathy and their kids, Abigail, Rebekah, Josiah and Evan. John is designing and building our two ministry centers. Kathy runs our scholarship program, mentors teammates and coordinates hospitality. Their four kids are attending Honduran school.

Kate deFuniak. Kate started our StreetChild ministry and works daily with homeless kids.

Mike and Ashley Troxell. The Troxells are church planters working daily in the super-poor community of La Fe.

The Pettengill family. The Pettengills are church planters working daily in the community of Armenia Bonito. Mike is Team Leader and Erin, a Registered Nurse, runs our mercy ministry. Their daughter Madison attends Honduran school.

Thank you so much for taking the time to glorify our Father by praying in his name.
