Bill and Mark continue to travel each month to train church leaders at a church in Cofradia and
La Ceiba. There are currently about 12 students in each church. We are also editing the course
material in an attempt to make a more condensed study. We are working on the fourth and ﬁnal
book in the series. We will then revisit all the books to correct errors discovered in the editing.
Our goal is to develop a curriculum that can be reproduced and taught by local leadership for
years to come.
In October, the churches held their second men’s retreat. As a
follow-up to last year’s theme, Courageous, the men watched the
movie Fireproof and focused on
how to be Godly husbands.
Approximately 80 men came
from different parts of Honduras.
This was the ﬁrst camp event that used the new dining
facility and tables. It is encouraging to see the men of
Honduras come together to strengthen one another in the
12th Annual Honduras Missionary Conference
In September we held our 12th Annual Honduras
Missionary Conference. More than 115 missionaries
came from all over Honduras to share in a time of
spiritual renewal, fellowship, and networking. We were
blessed to listen to messages from Roy Comrie who
reminded us that God’s justice may tarry but it is sure to
come. The kids and youth enjoyed being together and
learning about putting on the armor of God to face
Hazelwood Work Team...
We were thrilled to host a college
age team from Joy’s home church,
Hazelwood Christian Church, in
August. They worked tirelessly on
the task of remodeling the camp
administrative house into a dining
facility. This required demolishing
and rebuilding walls, retiling ﬂoors, and other projects.
The team also served at a church that was planted by one of the Bible Institute alumni, Cesar
Hernan. He is still pastoring this small, rural church. The team was prepared to do a program
for 40-60 children, but more than 130 children attended the event.
Even though it seemed overwhelming, the
team did a great job of ministering to the
kids. They sang songs, did a craft, played
games, and shared a Bible story. We are
hopeful that this program was instrumental in
bringing new families to this church in the
Since the team left, Mark continued to
oversee the hired workers to complete the
remodeling project. They have built and
tiled counter tops for the new kitchen and
ﬁnished a new bathroom in the cook’s
Bajío Christian Mission Address Change...
We are very grateful for the faithful service of the BCM treasurer, Lyn McIntyre, over the last
several years. Due to family care needs, she has had to step down from this position. The Bajio
Christian Mission board has decided on a new treasurer to ﬁll this role. Due to this transition, funds
should now be sent to his address in Indiana: Bajío Christian Mission, 4886 E. County Rd. 400 S.,
Plainﬁeld, IN 46168. Please make note of this change.
Mark and Joy will continue to receive their funding at the Hazelwood Christian Church address until
January of 2014. At that time, all funds will need to be sent to Bajío Christian Mission at the
Plainﬁeld, Indiana address given above.
Thank you very much for your prayers and ﬁnancial support!
Joy’s parents came down in August to celebrate Katrina’s ﬁrst
birthday. Katrina is the light of our lives and brings us great joy.
She loves ducks (her birthday theme), music, books, baby dolls,
and being chased. She’s been walking since she was nine months
old and she is continually babbling on about something.
Margy’s college roommate, Marge Phipps,
came for a visit in October. We all had a
fun time together at the beach and around
town. It was a great time to rekindle an old
friendship. Also pictured above is a recent
picture of Rebecca’s kids, Zach and Hannah.
