4D Ministries is a new missionary organization serving countries in Easter Europe. Hank describes some of the summer camps and Vacation Bible Schools now being run in various East European courntries. These camps and schools resulted in hundreds of kids "making a first time commitment to follow Christ or dedicating their lives to follow him more closely." Hank and his wife Mona are building strong local relationships with several church groups.
MISSION MIQUEAS 6:8 ORPHANAGE
Melody and Jacob Sherian have partnered with God to become the parents of 39 children whose ages range from a few months to fourteen years old. Maxine Perry reported last October that this effort "is truly a witness to discipleship in action." The vision for this orphanage is to raise "children who have been abandoned, neglected or abused, with love, care, education, encouragement and Christian values so that they will have the ability to lead the future generations of Honduras.
HONDURAS EYE AND DENTAL CLINIC
This clinic is dedicated to caring for the eyes and dental needs of the poor and was opened in 1997. Church of the Palms has played a major role in helping establish the clinic and continues to provide both financial and spiritual support. Since 1997, the Eye Clinic's exam count: $170,000; total surguries: 12,000.
HONDURAS GOOD SAMARITAN FUND
This is an incredibly important fund and is meant to help the poor and disadvantaged in the El Progresso area. It was established to assist individuals and organizations in Honduras who have needs, which do not fall within the guidelines of the budge for the Honduras Eye and Dental Clinic. The Fund is designed "to meet individuals where they are in life, assisting with basic needs such as food, clothing, education, medical help and most of all, sharing the love of Jesus with them"
HONDURAS MISSION TEAMS
As Maxine Perry announces Mission Team opportunities for 2015, "Missions Matters" listed in 2013 a subtitle for these Teams: "Serving 'Hands On' in Honduras." This past February two different kinds of COP teams visited the El Progresso area. One team focused on construction improvements and the other continued to link our brothers and sisters in Christ with those in El Progresso by conducting a week long Vacation Bible School.
