CHRISTINA MASSEY

Christina says, “I grew up in a Christian home and was saved at a young age. However, it wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned who God is and what having a relationship with Him means. Since that discovery, I have felt an urgency for the rest of the world to have a relationship with God. I don’t want to see people just get “saved,” I want them to know Jesus and discover how they can be part of His plan.”

Christina has been a member of Hitts Chapel General Baptist Church in Piggott, Arkansas, for 12 years. Her primary role of creative development, administration, and technical support allowed her the privilege of serving with children’s ministry, youth ministry, and graphic design ministry. She enjoys being a part of helping people to know, love, and follow God.

Christina says, “God has spoken to me very clearly over the past few years about being a missionary to Honduras. He is giving me an opportunity to be a part of His work in the country I have come to love through Mission Volunteer Program trips over the past ten years.

“I believe someday we will see the children of Faith Home preaching, teaching, and leading worship in churches across Honduras. They will be the hands feet and heart of God to their county. I want to be a part of their development and the churches they will lead.” Christina now serves as director of Faith Home Child Care in Honduras.

RYAN AND AMANDA STEAD

When God’s extraordinary plan causes two lives to intersect—one from rural Ohio and the other from Southern Africa, one has to wonder what He is up to. This is exactly when the Steads have done for the last 15 years. Their journey has given them three beautiful children, taken them coast to coast, all the while asking “God, what is Your plan, Your design for our family?”

In 2011 the plan began to unfold. Amanda and Ryan each received God’s call to Faith Home in Honduras in a unique way, revealing to them His wisdom and sovereignty. Individually, and as a family, He has given them a heart for the people of Honduras and the children of Faith Home.

Their desire is to disciple and minister to local people, equipping them to reach fellow Honduran neighbors, families and friends. They are currently in language school in Antigua, Guatemala, and will return to Honduras in June to begin working in the church planting sector of that work.

Hector, Maria, Ixchel, and Mia Aguilar

If you have had a child starting to walk, jump, run, and wonder about Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, or Bugs Bunny, close your eyes for a moment and picture this. Your children are walking between cars on a corner all by themselves, begging for money, and will sleep tonight on the sidewalk praying, "God, please, don't let it rain tonight. I will be a better kid tomorrow."

Hector used to blame the city and the authorities for that situation never considering that he was responsibe for the problem as well. Hector stated, "I am a good Christian. I go to church, give my offerings, and pray. Why am I responsible? Because the way you can see the eyes of God, is to see it through the eyes of the ones around you. My sin is called OMISSION."

A former Judge, Hector delt with hundreds of kids who had no choice, hundreds of prostitutes who have no choice, and drug dealers who offered them "a choice" right now. He realized one thing he could do was to start creating a real choice for them. When General Baptists came to Honduras in 1994 to start Faith Home, Hector and his wife, Maria, joined that effort as lawyers and legal representatives.

Hector currently serves as the Assistant Director of Faith Home.
