Church Work-a 2020 Vision

World Gospel Mission in Honduras works with the “Santidad” church. The Choluteca regional ministry started in 1999 as a result of Hurricane Mitch. The immediate need was to establish a church in the region. At this point, we now have 8 congregations in different stages of growth. The church continues to be involved in the transformation of people's lives and es expanding into new communities around Choluteca. The church is the foundation of all that we do. Our vocational school, health promotion program, and nursing high school all depend on a strong, vibrant, and active church.

We arrived as a couple, along with Maria our youngest daughter, in 2000 and spent most of our first 6 years working entirely with the church. We were involved in helping start several small congregations out in different villages. We worked as a team with key Hondurans in the regional church.

Adding to the Church
We are a part of the Shalom church which started on February 14th. 2009. It was started by a group of about 20 people who were earnestly seeking peace in all areas of their lives. We started without a pastor and then the congregation asked us to take over the pastoral leadership. Larry was ordained by the Santidad church.

When we return to Honduras in January 2019 we anticipate starting community development projects in two new communities. By 2020, we hope to have two new church congregations established.
