Honduras - 2006
Medical Mission and Church Construction
Someone told me that Honduras was the land of mountains of children and that was definitely the case! They were a smiling and friendly bunch though that made the experience heart-felt and satisfying.

The medical team spent a day in four different locations offering medical services to all that came. While the people waited, the Honduran pastors with the team talked to and preached the message of salvation. Approx. 700 people were seen in the four days.

Two doctors, Dr. Dick from the states, and Dr. Elmer from Honduras, worked diligently to help in every way that could. An generous amount of supplies were donated by local hospitals and clinics in the Douglasville, Georgia, area which were invaluable.

This was only one of several churches the group from Crossroads Church has helped build. Over the last seven years, the churches have continually grown and leaders of new groups are trained and given the tools to help them be successful in their country.

People waited for hours to be able to get medical attention which provided great opportunity to share the Word.

The greatest rewards and blessings for me come from doing what I can to make a difference in the life of a child, even if it is just to let them know I care enough about them to come to their country and get to know them for only a day.

People often ask me, "Isn't it better to be involved in one project in one place and really know it and make a difference than several short projects in different countries?" The answer for me is I will go wherever and whenever I feel God is calling me in my life and try to take advantage of every opportunity He gives me to share the life changing message of Jesus Christ.
