Leadership Mission International
Our family serves at The Leadership Center in rural Honduras. The Leadership Center is a project of Leadership Mission International (http://leadershipmissioninternational.org/) and is dedicated to educating, training, and developing the next generation of ethical leaders who will lead Honduras out of a constant cycle of corruption and poverty and into a better future.
Our family is originally from the Northwest, and we have spent the majority of our lives prior to 2011 living in Seattle, Washington. After Joseph completed his master’s degree in International Community Development in 2010, our family began looking for an opportunity to serve overseas. We came across an ad soliciting teachers at The Leadership Center, and we were drawn to this opportunity for several reasons. First, we were drawn by the faith-based influence – the founder is a retired pastor. Secondly, it was a new project, and we wanted to be influential in shaping the future of the project. And lastly, we felt a strong call from God to get involved.
So, in February of 2011, our family packed our bags and moved to Honduras with the intention of returning to the United States in one year. Four years later, we are still serving and have taken over the majority of the administrative responsibilities of the project. God has clearly poured out His blessing on this ministry, and we feel extremely blessed to be responding to His call to service.
Pray that God would bring the right people to join their team this year as they are currently looking for a few new staff members.
Pray for a productive and fruitful last few months with several of their team members as some of their staff will be leaving in the next few months. Pray that God’s grace would abound in these relationships as this season with these staff members comes to a close.
Pray that the transition of staff members would go smoothly. Pray that God would encourage Joseph and Hailey and give them wisdom as they continue to labor faithfully and seek out who God has as staff next.
