Spiritual Life Taking Hold - HONDURAS

Seventeen years of service and prayer are starting to root. Pastors Luis and Lucia, two of Frontline Missions (FMUSA) spiritual leaders, prayed and sent out Juan and Maria as the first Honduran missionaries from their church in February 2023. They now have been in La Ceibita for an entire year, training the Tolupan people in the ways of God in response to the Tolupan chief’s request to establish a truly Tolupan church.

 

To prepare for a permanent pastor, several teams have helped to construct a cement block home. It is being finished as you are reading this publication. This home will temporarily house Juan and Maria while they remain in La Ceibita but will be handed over to a Tolupan pastor in time to come.

 

We will purchase a ministry motorcycle in April to allow the pastors to visit their families occasionally and in case of an emergency. Individuals have stepped forward and generously met the need. The motorcycle, along with as many pouches and pockets as we can fit on it, will remain in Flower Mountain for the ministry there.

Chief Chavelo, whose children were water baptized last summer as noted in our Summer Newsletter, and his son, Noe, are currently being mentored by Juan and Maria. Noe was touched by God and divinely delivered from an addiction to cigarettes and alcohol. Now Noe tells everyone how powerful God is and that He can help all of them in their lives too.

Spiritual Life Taking Hold - HONDURAS

In response to our already long-term relationship, the Tolupan leadership has also asked FMUSA to preserve their Tol language. We will fund Ricardo from San Juan, a Tolupan who worked with FMUSA ten years ago, to translate Bible Stories into Tol. Ricardo started teaching the La Ceibita elementary and middle school children in February 2024. We want to seize every opportunity offered to us to serve the Tolupan and share Christ with them, especially in their native language.

If we see the success we expect and are able to receive the necessary funding, we will

consider expanding to reach other nearby villages.

Many of our supporters have prayed for years for Tolupan spiritual leaders. The sudden

growth has been remarkable: Increased baptisms, a truly Tolupan church, and now, an

undeniable Tolupan testimony of God’s power are changing an entire culture.

School (Fairburn, GA)

Answering The Call: The Jajarkot Earthquake

Shortly before midnight, one week into our stay in Nepal in November 2023, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake rocked Jajarkot. Many were jolted awake where we were, 380 miles west of the epicenter, as the earth shook. Jajarkot was devastated by this earthquake: 153 people lost their lives and thousands were left homeless. Pastor Sanjay's church, where Sandi spoke the following Sunday, had several young believers from Jajarkot who lost loved ones. Other family members were now without a home. Pastor Sanjay asked Frontline Missions to help them go to serve the people.

 

FMUSA responded to their call. Pastor Sanjay, his wife, Susmita, and two young men quickly purchased food, medical supplies, mattresses, and blankets. They loaded a bus with supplies and made the 18-plus hour trip to the mountain village. They were gratefully received by the people! While there, they ministered the love of God and hope of Christ with the villagers as they laden them with gifts to help them through this difficult time. We were grateful for this opportunity to empower our partners in Nepal whose hearts quickly responded, carrying the Gospel as the Hands and Feet of Jesus to those in need.

A New “Pattern” For Women

“I would like you to present the graduates of our Sewing Training with their certificates of completion when you come to Nepal,” shared Dr. Khadka, president of Evangelical Christian College (ECC) in Kathmandu, Nepal. ECC not only disciples young people to impact Nepal with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but it also reaches out to the community to train impoverished women with sewing skills so they can start their own businesses.

 

“Giving them a certificate does not seem like enough. They need their own sewing machine so they can provide for their families,” Sandi responded. “What if Frontline can raise money to purchase a sewing machine for each of them?”

A plan was made: Each woman would receive a sewing machine. They would slowly repay the funds

used out of the profits of their business, which would be used to provide machines for future students.

Through the generosity of you, our Frontline family, we purchased 26 machines. As the women received their certificates and their machines, their faces glowed. One woman shared her gratefulness, “You have given us a life-changing opportunity. Thank you!”
