For nearly five years our ministry in La Ceiba, Honduras has been serving the people and glorifying the Lord. This is a team that the Lord has handpicked and put together for his glory. Here is a quick introduction of God’s servants…if you don’t know them already…from right to left along the bottom:
Kate DeFuniak runs our StreetChild ministry. Lyssa Melonakos is an intern who works in the community of La Fe. Erin Pettengill is our resident nurse and runs a medical clinic in Armenia Bonito. Mike Pettengill is our Team Leader. James Bryars is an intern working in Armenia Bonito. Jennifer Derrick is an intern working in Puerta de Esperanza. Mike Troxell and Ashley Troxell are church planters working in the community of La Fe. Lesther Ordoñez recently joined Team Honduras when he married Shannon Innes de Ordoñez who runs Puerta de Esperanza. Mandy Marcone is an intern who works with the StreetKids. Kathy Clow runs our scholarship program and coordinates our short-term teams and John Clow manages all of our construction needs. And, of course, all the kids across the top.
Our team loves and fights and appreciates and supports each other like a biological family. God has been good to all of us by brining together our team.
