APRIL MISSIONS FEATURED PROJECT –
HANDS OF CHRIST
Our project for April is the Hands of Christ, Inc. A MEDICAL MISSION IN HONDURAS RUN BY DR. ANA AND JOHN LAMON. They provide medical services to the poor people in and around Tegucigalpa and coordinate mission teams from the USA. Recently the Hands of Christ were able to give out Christmas Shoeboxes to a remote community called Quebrada Honda in the mountains well off the beaten path. They had to wait till school was back in session after the winter break (Nov 24 – Feb 1) so that they could reach all the children. Dr Ana shared a message of Jesus’s love for all of them including teachers and parents and 109 children prayed to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior. The children are very poor and the gift of the shoeboxes brought such joy to their hearts and faces,
Work on the Women’s Hospital continues to progress and they have been working on the plumbing. The Hands of Christ are able to use the building to host medical teams now that it is under roof. We hope to have a speaker from the Hands of Christ on one of the Sundays in April and we will then take up a collection to help Dr Ana and John Lamon in their work. Besides the money needed for the Hospital construction, they also need money for medicines and dental equipment which they must rent when they do dental clinics. Please be in prayer for these dedicated missionaries and how you can help them.
