Ministry PortraitPreparation for the 2018 Pastors' Conference in Danli, Honduras began at the close of the 2017 conference. The vision of supplying every pastor with an E-reader tablet was cast and prayer and planning began in earnest.


During the 2017 Faith Promise Missions Conference, just over $25,000 was pledged toward the conference and purchase of the tablets. An attendance of over 200 pastors was estimated, therefore at least 200 tablets were required to meet the need.


Our goal was to find tablets that would allow pastors access to large amounts of reference materials for Bible study as well as the ability to prepare sermons and lessons.


In addition to E-reader tablets, once again, whole Bibles, New Testaments and full-color tracts were to be provided to the pastors for their ministries and outreach programs.


22 participants signed up for the trip to Honduras. We praise the Lord for the Spanish ministry of Faith Baptist Church and the willingness of Spanish speakers to join the team. Their participation allows for greater outreach opportunities in the schools and communities in and around Danli.


The team was also excited for the opportunity to join in the celebrating of the first-year anniversary of the church they helped to start in Paradise, Honduras during the 2017 Pastors' Conference.

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:”

- II Thessalonians 3:1

Conference Day 2

This morning the outreach team was able to go to a school and visit the classrooms.

The tablets were introduced to the pastors this morning. Bro. Steve taught the introductory lesson through a translator and using a projector. The pastors were not expecting this sort of a conference at all and they were very receptive to learning and using tablets. Some pastors were already proficient with tablets.

After the Steve’s lesson they were then given a period of time to work with the tablets while the tech team and some of the other pastors helped with questions.

When the outreach team returned from the morning at the school, they began helping to unload the containers where the tracts that would be needed later were located.

There are more sessions covering the apps and resources on the tablets scheduled for later.

Construction Project

On Monday, the team surveyed the house and the repair needs. They drew up a plan for repairing the home so that the children had a dry place to live. Originally, it was thought that the walls and roof could be repaired, keeping the water out when it rained and the dust and dirt out of the house.

When they began to demo the house, it was discovered that it was in even worse condition than originally thought, and the repairs would be much more extensive than first thought. A beam was needed to support the roof. They ordered materials to weld together the beam, which weren’t delivered until late in the afternoon. The materials were cut to size and the beam was then welded together at the church. 

On Wednesday, they poured footers and prepared for the beam to be raised. The beam was loaded into a bus and delivered to the job site.

Outreach Team Update

Monday the strike was still in effect, which meant the outreach team was not going to schools all day as planned. This worked out well, however, because the outreach team was able to help with additional setup on the tablets.

Monday evening, they were informed that the schools would be open on Tuesday and they could go to visit them. The first school visit on Tuesday morning was scheduled for an 8:00 am start. There were a variety of activities planned: playing musical instruments, presenting puppet programs, teaching lessons, and singing songs in Spanish. In some schools, they were allowed to go classroom-to-classroom handing out materials. The Catholic school they visited on Wednesday would not allow this, but the Gospel was clearly presented through the teaching and singing.

In the afternoons, the team spent time practicing, since the lessons and songs were all in Spanish and had to be memorized.

Friday/Saturday - The team will be flying through the night Friday into Saturday morning into Houston, which is 2 hours ahead of Seattle time. During the layover they will have a team meeting and some time to grab a bite to eat. From there, they will board their second flight going to Tegucigalpa.
They will arrive in Tegucigalpa on Saturday morning around 11am. They'll then travel to Danli which is a couple hour bus ride. They will end the evening with dinner, settling into their hotel room and preparing for the next day.

Sunday - Everyone will be divided into teams and each team will go and visit various mission works. A few team members will likely preach at the churches they are visiting. They will get back together at Danli and have the evening service together there.

Monday - In the morning, the members of the outreach team will be picked up and taken to various schools and places to minister.
The tech team will head to the church to begin setup and to help with the registration as pastors begin to arrive.
There will be two sessions that evening to open up the conference.

Tuesday - Similar pattern to Monday as the outreach team will be headed out to minister and the tech team will be headed to the church for a full day of teaching.

Wednesday - Again the outreach team will head out and the tech team will head to the church to teach. The sessions will be followed by the midweek services, where the team will be there to minister to the guest pastors.
