As most of you know our church here in Honduras, Emanuel Baptist Church, has a day home for children. The day home was begun to fill a need in our community for single, low-income mothers trying to provide for their families.  As there are no “daycares”, many children are left home alone, without proper supervision.  The day home provides two healthy meals a day, physical care (teeth brushed, lice removal, et cet), Bible lessons, homework help or lessons for preschoolers, and love. 

Our church uses this as a way to minister to our community and proclaim the gospel of Christ. Relationships have been developed with these mothers, and some have begun attending our church. Some of the children also come on their own on Sunday mornings. 

Our family has had the privilege to be involved in this ministry in various ways over the year. Our family does the grocery shopping each week, transports clean water, shuttles and supervises children during special outings, maintains a website, etc.

Yesterday, we were notified that as of March, the group that supports this ministry will no longer be able to do so. If we are unable to raise the monthly funds to cover the expenses, the day home will need to close. We know that the Lord is sovereign over all events and that the future of these children are in His hands. If you are interested in supporting this ministry, please send us an email at
