July Missionaries

Join us in prayer and support of this month's missionaries

Mike and Sharon Garrett
World Gospel Mission - Choluteca, Honduras

Mike and Sharon Garrett are both from Ohio and currently serve at the Choluteca Vocational School instructors in cosmetology and auto body repair, community health education, work team coordinators, and gardening/agriculture instruction.

The Garretts previously served with WGM in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, with Wings of Peace aviation ministry from 1994-1995.  They have been blessed to experience God's faithfulness in their 36 years of marriage.  They have seen God heal Sharon and their oldest daughter, Heather, from cancer, and they continue to seek and serve Him with WGM in Choluteca, Honduras.

Pray for the Garretts as they serve at the Choluteca Vocational School.  Pray also for the Hondurans with which they have the opportunity to minister to.  Pray that God will make their efforts effective and will bring many people to Him through the work in Choluteca.

Gary and Laura Griffin
World Gospel Mission - Olancho, Honduras

Laura was 27 when she accepted Christ and Gary was 41 when he accepted Christ.  By the time Gary became a believer, they had been married almost 22 years and had no children.  They became very involved in their church in Ohio teaching and discipling new believers.  A few years later, they felt God calling them to do something different.  They prayed and waited for God to show them the next step.  While attending a family camp in the summer of 2004, God called them to full-time Christian ministry, but they did not know where that would be.

They enrolled at Venard College in 2005, and while there God made it very clear that He wanted them to follow Him to Honduras.  He opened the door for them to partner with WGM and minister to the young men and farm workers at Escuela El Sembrador (School of the Sower).  Gary taught auto mechanics and worked around the farm and Laura taught English as a second language.  They have enjoyed using their home as a ministry tool as students would come to their home to study or just to hang out, giving them a break from their dorm life.  Students began to "open up" and share about their lives and their relationship (or lack thereof) with Jesus.  God created opportunities for Gary and Laura to share the gospel message, through both the spoken work and the action of love.  By leading Gary and Laura to El Sembrador, He met a huge desire and need in their lives: They were engages with kids, family, and community!

Pray for Gary and Laura as they minister at El Sembrador and share their hearts and lives with those the Lord brings their way.
