With the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Eta, the people of Honduras need an “extra measure” of our support right now.
Our church members, Ernie and Allison Sizemore, began serving as missionaries in Honduras in 2013. During the past few years, they have served through Mission on the Move. During this time, our church has supported the mission by sending mission teams, collecting supplies, and raising funds. Throughout the years, we have been strong supporters of the mission’s vision of reaching communities with the message of Christ. A main focus of the mission has been to care for orphans until they can be placed in foster care homes. Additionally, the mission has focused upon recruiting Christian foster parents where they can place these infants and children in order that they may be raised in faith. It is a long-term approach to impacting the next generation for Christ while caring for “the least of these.”
And because of the devastation of Hurricane Eta, Mission on the Move is getting calls and requests to take what is an unexpected influx of orphaned infants. As a result, the mission in Santa Elena is immediately reopening the Baby Crisis Center (Casa Mariposa) to receive these children. The goal is to care for these infants until they can be transitioned into appropriate foster care homes. This will likely take several months.
Our goal as a church during the Christmas season is to provide funding to operate the Baby Crisis Center for 8 months at $1,600 per month. The Mission Development Council has gotten us started by approving funds for 2 months, so that the center can open immediately. That leaves us with a goal of raising enough to support the crisis center for the remaining 6 months at a total of $9,600.
