Grand Opening!

11 Aug


This past month was exciting! All of our hard work on our new church build finally came to an end as we celebrated with a grand opening ceremony. The ceremony drew folks from all of the surrounding villages and we had 190 people show up to see the new church and participate in the inauguration service.


Where’s Pete? See if you can find Jennies Dad.

Thanks to all of you who helped with this project. God is using your generosity to reach the people in this country.

It was nice to have Jennies folks with us for 3 weeks. They put in long hours of work to help us finish. They were a huge help during the last push.

Also wanted to give a “shout out” to all who donated for the chairs. It came down to the wire but y’all came through! Thanks for your faithfulness.

While it is nice to have this project under our belts, I miss the comradery of working together with my Honduran brothers. Need to start another church plant soon so we can get back to it.

Had a baptism in which 5 people followed in the obedience of Jesus. Always a blessing!

Personal project:

After the inauguration ceremony, I spent a little time taking apart my broken Pick-up and turning it into a trailer.


Turned the bed of my Ford ranger into a trailer.

I tend to find myself doing things I would have never considered doing in the States…But  here, when life gives you a broken truck, you make a trailer.


The kids enjoyed having their grandparents here for 3 weeks.

Patience is still working at WOL Island. She comes home in about 3 weeks. We’ve missed her but are super proud of her for giving up her summer to do ministry.


Looking to buy a piece of land for a new church plant in the mountains of Izopo. I have about half of the funds needed to buy the land. Pray for us as this will be a challenging plant due to poor access to the village. The roads wash out during rainy season which makes bringing materials very challenging.

Also hoping to get a roof on our house soon. The rain has been reaking havoc on the foundation and has caused it to sink a little.


Thanks for all of your support. Your prayers and financial gifts allow us to minister here. There is not a day that passes in which we are not thankful. You are this ministry.

    necessary is the mother of invention, brother, we always maintained what we called, ‘THE BONE PILE’ …like resurrection of the bones in Ezekiel!
