SEPTEMBER MISSIONS FEATURED PROJECT -THE HANDS OF CHRIST
Our project for September 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 a generous family came and brought 120 Sawyer water filters to distribute to the needy. The water in Honduras is not dependable and when it rains hard, the water in their faucets turns a light brown color. Children suffer from diarrhea, parasites and other ailments that are common when the water is not safe to drink. Dr. Ana showed the people how to assemble, use and take care of the Sawyer water filters while also introducing them to Jesus before each class. Work on the Women’s Hospital continues to progress and now they are working on the interior walls. We plan to have a speaker from the Hands of Christ on one of the Sundays in September 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.
