5 of the Carpenters are heading to Honduras on a global outreach trip in June through Common Ground Church teaming up with Inca Link. Derrick, Kallie, Lydia, Kayla, and Elyce will be visiting a missionary located in La Sierra, Intibucá, Honduras.
Not only is this an opportunity to serve those in need, this is an opportunity for our family to gain a larger vision of God's kingdom. Our girls love Jesus and this will help them get to know Him and His mission even better.
What Will We Do?
We will be serving with a local missionary who has established an effective outreach serving children and their families in very rural "shanty towns". Education is a large part of this outreach. Teaching children math and other skills to prepare them for future life. In addition there are VBS type outreaches to teach the gospel and the love of Jesus. Lydia and Kayla have both been learning Spanish and everyone in our family loves to serve and be with children making this an ideal place for us to partner. In addition the ministry serves local families teaching them to garden and grow food both for themselves, and to sell locally. We will be sharing the gospel while helping provide useful life skills to make a dent in the significant poverty in the area.
Pray for God to bolster local ministries in Honduras and that lives will be saved.
Pray that all requirements for travel will come through smoothly.
Pray for the hearts of the Carpenter family that God will prepare them for His service to His glory and use this to draw them deeper into a love relationship with Him.
Pray for Jesus to return soon, but that until then we will be found faithful!
