On Mission to Honduras

I am planning to go On Mission to Honduras July 8th through 14th, 2012. I will be going with a ministry named World Hope Ministries International (WHMI). One of WHMI's ministries is World Hope Bible Institute (WHBI),which is a ministry that trains indigenous pastors and leaders through theological education. In short, WHBI brings pastors to a country, and that pastor teaches local pastors so that those pastors can teach to those God has placed in their care. This is a powerful outworking of my life verse, 2 Timothy 2:2.

In this verse, I do not envision myself as Paul, but rather Timothy. I have been taught some good things through friends, pastors, teachers, and professors, and I feel like it is my calling to share what I have learned to faithful followers of Christ who will take that and teach others. That is what this Honduras trip is about.

I heard about the great need for theological training across the world from Dr. Stuart Sheehan at the last executive board meeting of the Colorado Baptist General Convention. He shared his heart to meet the need of the pastors overseas and God pricked my heart. I think WHBI has a great vision and I am looking forward to partnering with them in July.

If you are a pastor and would like to participate in mission trip like this, please contact World Hope Bible Institute.

I will post more information about Honduras and the trip in the coming weeks. Please begin praying for me. Ask that Lord help me prepare my heart for what I will be teaching and pray that God will use me in a powerful way.
