One very exciting addition to deacon Glen Elliott's missions ministry in 2012 is World Bible School. This ministry is headed up by Karissa Bruce who was already active in missions here, having been to Honduras (along with teenage granddaughter Morgan) on our summer 2011 trip. Karissa joins thousands of other Christians in sending and grading Bible correspondence courses for 2-million students around the globe!

Our congregation is financially supporting Olvin and Siney who are spreading the Gospel message to neighborhoods just outside of the capital city of Tegucigulpa. Olvin and Siney graduated in December 2010 from the Baxter Institute (four year preaching school in Tegucigulpa). The purpose of this trip was to touch base with our young missionaries, Siney and Olvin, to help them define a plan for their evangelistic work. The four also toured Mission Lazarus (in southern Honduras) where the church of Christ supported work as planted over twenty congregations since 2001.

The following pics were taken near Tegucigalpa Honduras (the capital), and further south near Mission Lazarus (near Choluteca). Our mission team helped contruct a wall around a Church of Christ supported medical clinic, nutrition site, worship location near the Pacific Ocean. We delivered food to some needy families with the aid of a local preacher there. We also helped build an addition at a local church building in Tegucigalpa. Our 3rd-5th graders in Fort Gibson raised about $900 so we could buy a cow and deliver it to a Honduran family. One local church presented our team with Honduran soccer jerseys! We also purchased laptops and a digital camera for our new missionaries Siney Medina and Olvin Florez. We are making plans for summer 2012.
