The ministry in Honduras continues to prosper by God's grace. A few months ago an independent church in Tocoa has come under our ministry covering, Palabra Viviente. The pastors are Patricio and Maria Posantes.
We have also recently connected with another independent church in Olanchito, also wanting to come under our ministry covering. The pastors are Cesar and Maria Urbina. It is a larger than average congregation meeting in a nice facility near the center of town. Pastor Carlos has been traveling to Olanchito for the last several weeks to minister at the church. We plan on having a foundational training with their leaders within the next months.
After the February leader's conference in Corozal I will spend three additional weeks visiting the new churches in Tocoa and Olanchito as well as other churches in Colon.
In July pastor Barry and I will be ministering at the Annual Garifuna Leader's Conference being held this year in Trujillo which is three hours east of La Ceiba. After the conference the plan would be to hold a two-day leader's seminar in Colon and also be ministering at village churches for the remainder of my time there.
The beginning of September I plan to lead a construction team to build a church in the village of Despertar in Colon. This will be the largest building that we have built to date. After the construction team returns to the states I will remain a few more weeks for leader training and ministering in the village churches.
I am planning to make a additional trip to Honduras in November to hold a training seminar for leaders and minister in the village churches. This is stepping out by faith for the finances for this trip so please pray with me. Thank you.
So you can't join an upcoming Honduras mission trip? No problem, you can also support this ministry
by giving financially.
Gateway Church is excited to be a part of what God is doing in Honduras, Central America.
In the 1980's, a long time friend and member of Gateway, Pastor Steve Morris, started in the village of Corozal with a Bible and guitar visiting house to house sharing the gospel. Before long a congregation was started that had a vision to share the gospel wth neighboring villages. Over the years that "planted seed" has grown to more than two dozen churches and the ministry of Misión Palabra Viviente (Living Word Mission) was formally established.
For many years, Gateway teams have traveled to this beautiful country and witnessed the goodness of God for the extraordinary citizens of Honduras. Through our network of churches, we are able to connect with and support the pastors and their people. In addition to work trips, we host an Annual Pastors' Conference for dozens of Honduran Church leaders.
