Honduras Report

News of the Work 

Greetings in the beloved Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  The last month has been a busy one, but they all seem to be that way, these days. In the last newsletter, I failed to mention that I traveled to Denver for the Bear Valley Homecoming Lectures, September 24-26.  It was an outstanding lectureship, filled with powerful lessons.  It was also great to see so many old friends. 

Much of the month of October has been used in preparation for my upcoming trip which I will describe below.  I have also preached two Gospel Meetings.  The first was in Topeka, Kansas working with the Quivira Heights congregation, who help support us in our work.  Those dates were October 10-13.  The congregation has grown since I was there last and the meeting was well attended and I enjoyed my time with these great brethren very much.  The next week, I traveled to Memphis, Texas for the second meeting, October 17-20.  Again, the meeting was well attended and received and my time with the brethren was very much a blessing to me.  On Sunday evening, October 24, I traveled to Neosho, Missouri to give a report on the work in Danlí, Honduras to the Hillcrest congregation which serves as the sponsoring congregation for that school. 

School News 


The latest report from Honduras is that the students are faithfully engaged in their studies and putting into practice what they are learning in the classroom.  Brother Nery Irias (our director) informs me that Oscar Morgan continues to work with the congregation of Jicarito and has built that small congregation up from one brother to seven.  Brethren Yoni Gonzalez and Hector Viera continue working with the congregation in Villa Santa.  Quoting Nery:  they have “entered into the synagogues of the sectarians to debate the Scriptures with them and for that reason are hated, but well respected in the community.” 

Travel Plans 

I am currently trying to complete preparations for the class I will be teaching in Kathmandu, Nepal.  I leave on that trip Thursday, October 28.  I plan to return home on November 6.  I covet your prayers.

Thank you and God bless you all.
