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 3

It has been very hot in Honduras, and even hotter in the auditorium where all of the pastors are assembled and learning. In spite of the heat, they are very attentive and working to learn as much as possible.

The response has been enthusiastic. One pastor reported that his daughter contacted him after it was reported on social media that tablets were being given away at the conference. She asked if her father was among those who received a tablet.  He responded to her that everyonewho attended received a tablet and no, she could not have his!

At the close of the last session taught by Bro. Steve, all of the pastors burst into applause. They stood in line to shake the workers’ hands, and thanked them profusely for the help and the tablets they received during the conference. Repeatedly, the pastors sent their thanks to the members of Faith Baptist Church for the sacrifices made for them.

Attendance at the closing service Wednesday was the largest they have ever had there. There were325 in the auditorium; counting all of the other activities around the complex, total attendance was well over 400. The heartfelt response of the pastors and missionaries was evident in their impassioned singing and rapt attention during this final service.

This year again, there has been news coverage of the conference. One of the reporters asked to shoot footage on Thursday of the construction team repairing the house. Also on Thursday, the tech team will be available to help with any additional questions. Bro. Steve said that he has never felt so connected with so many people with whom he could not communicate.

The team has many exciting testimonies to share when they return!

Construction Update

The construction team, using materials they had gathered, cut and constructed a steel beam weighing close to 600 lbs. They put it on a bus and took it to the house. At first, the children were a little stunned with strangers working inside their home, but Bro. Mike incorporated the help of the oldest boy and that eased their anxiety. That young man worked all day with the team!

Outreach Update

In the morning the outreach team visited the school where Audrey works. They were not allowed to hand out materials, but they were allowed to sing, do skits, and teach. The children there also performed for the team. They left a good testimony and left the door open for further outreach.

  After lunch, the outreach team wanted to go to a park and do puppets and skits, but with all of the turmoil in the country currently, any group activities would be questioned and a cause for concern.  Instead the team went to the mall, and while shopping, they passed out tracts and witnessed. Even then, one of the team members was stopped and questioned.
