Welcome To The Clows

the Clow familyWe are pleased to announce the addition of the Clow family to Team Honduras.  The Clows will be joining us here in La Ceiba, Honduras very shortly as fulltime missionaries.  They have committed to a four-year stay to start with.

John and Kathy Clow have four children: Abigail, Rebekah, Josiah and Evan. They have been missionaries with MTW since 2002. After training and language school they served their first four-year term in Mexico. God has now called them to join our team in La Ceiba, Honduras.

They are currently in the U.S. raising their final 10% of support they need.  When they have raised $900/month in ongoing support and several thousand in onetime support they will join us here in La Ceiba.  We are prayerfully anticipating that they will be here before the end of 2009.  We love the idea of adding experienced missionaries with a solid grasp on the Spanish language…what a blessing.

Please join us in praying for the Clow family.
