ESLC Honduras Mission

For the past 5 years members and friends from ESLC have traveled to Honduras on a short term mission trip. Our host is World Gospel Outreach, a mission organization home based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. WGO has been in ministry there for 34 years and in that time has ministered to 1.3 million people. The mission of a WGO Serve Team is to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the least of these in Honduras.

ESLC teams travel there to serve during the last week of February every year, joining with two additional churches for the week. The mission is medical with an evangelistic outcome, meaning we bring medical, dental, optical and pharmaceutical services to the people and then share the Gospel with them. Children�s ministry is also part of the mission. Team members participate in all aspects of the ministry with no special qualifications for most duties. Doctors and nurses are always needed. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the missionary life on a short term basis while at the same time responding to God�s call to �go and make disciples of all nations.�

For more information contact the church office or Pastor Ray Ramsburg.

ESLC has a group of men and women who have started a chapter for the Toys For God�s Kids nationwide organization. TFGK makes toy cars to send to the mission fields with missionaries and to foreign countries with deployed military personnel. These toy cars are given to children who have no toys to speak of, bringing them joy beyond belief. Last year over 3000 cars were sent to Honduras, Peru, Rowanda, Sierra Leone, Haiti, Kenya, El Salvador, Bahamas, Costa Rica as well as to local agencies.

Those who make the cars are known as �Smilemakers� and our group is always in need of more �Smilemakers�. Cars are cut with scroll saws, sanded on a belt sander, routed and then assembled. Volunteers can plug in wherever they feel comfortable. Come and be a �Smilemaker.�

ESLC is directly involved in the Lutheran Church of Haiti - in Fellowship with the LCMS. We have been to the Central Plateau to visit the church and school in Laotchikit. We visited the church in the nearby village of Pas Bonbon and have financed the start of the school in Pas Bonbon opening in September 2018. Currently we are building a kitchen to replace the current method of cooking over an open fire outside. Additional projects include: Bibles (French Language), Well and Pump for running water, and additional classroom structures.
