I am married and have two precious children: Gerardo, who is five years old, and Isabella, who is almost three. They are a blessing!

Prayer requests for Honduras

  • Praise God for one of our partner churches in Honduras who is looking to plant a church. Praise God for this incredible step of faith they are undertaking. Please pray that City Hall will grant the permission they need to begin the construction process.
  • Please pray for several centres, which are located in conflicted zones surrounded by gang members. Due to gang fights for territory, program activities are sometimes placed on hold to ensure the safety of our children. Please pray for peaceful resolution, so our staff, families and children no longer live in fear and program activities can continue as normal.
  • Please pray for Mario (HO-0332); he has a tumour in his head and requires surgery. Please pray for a successful surgery and for the tumour to not reoccur.
  • Please pray for Brayan (HO-0318); he was swimming in a river when a landslide covered him with mud. Thankfully his brothers were able to save him, however his lungs have become severely damaged. Please pray for effective medical treatment to repair the damage to his lungs.
