In June, our churches in the North Coast held a fellowship day at the Cofradia Church. However, due to COVID, we had a smaller group gather together. It was a time of joy and encouragement.
On Sunday June 27th, the youth in the west zone of Honduras held an all day conference at El Arca. Representatives from each church attended. The topics for this year included: Youth on the Brink of Failure, Joseph's Secret, The Adventure of Dreaming, and Facing challenges as a young Christian. All these conferences helped strengthen the faith and challenges that youth face in their daily lives. It was a great blessing to them.
Lastly, I had the honor and privilege of being selected, with a few other pastors, to accompany the president of Honduras as part of the Honduran Delegation to witness the moving of our embassy from Tel–Aviv to Jerusalem, the eternal Capital of Israel. The president of Honduras met with Israel's new prime minister for the inauguration of the embassy and we also had the opportunity to pray for Honduras and Israel at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. It was a special occasion filled with joy, and I feel blessed to be part of this moment. We also had the opportunity to visit the places where our Lord walked, preached, died and was resurrected.
Thank you amigos and churches for your support, with your finances, and prayers. May our God continue blessing you.

Hello amigos and blessings to you. I would like to introduce you to Randy Wall, our new Mission Honduras (Iglesias Comunidad de Amor, Internacional, ICAI ) Director for Recruitment and Fundraising.
Randy has been a medical provider for many years and has worked as a physician assistant in Kentucky and Tennessee for the last 35 years. He received his medical training while he was in the Army National Guard, from which he is now retired. For the last 2 and a half years, he had been praying passionately in search of finding a ministry where he could get involved in mission work and the Lord answered his prayer. He made contact with us through Jerry Cox, who connected him with our mission. After interviewing with our leadership and going through all required checks, he was accepted to work with our team.
We praise the Lord for sending him. He is a man of God with a heart for the people and specially the people of Honduras. During the month of May, he visited our missionary field for 12 days and felt that the Lord confirmed his call to be a missionary with us here in Honduras. He is currently in the process of moving to Honduras and will be residing at El Arca Camp.
In other news, even though we're still in the middle of the pandemic, people continue to commit their lives to our Lord. Some believers got baptized by Pastor Toribio Santos in a river bed in Teupasenti, El Paraiso.
Thank you so much my dear friends for your prayers for us. We always remember you and your churches in our prayers. Thank you for your faithful support.
