March Mission

 The 2024 “One Great Hour of Sharing” offering is designated for a ministry called “Honduras Medical Brigade.” This ministry is a Christian witness in Santa Rosa de Aguán, a remote village along the Caribbean coast of Honduras. The habitants are of the Garifuna ethnicity—people of African and indigenous descendancy that settled in Central America in the 18th century. They are among the poorest and most marginalized groups in the region. Honduras Medical Brigade began after Hurricane Mitch landed on the village in 1988, causing severe devastation. Since then, Honduras Medical Brigade has helped to rebuild the school and dock, constructed a ball court, organized a tutoring program for underperforming children, provided school supplies for students of all ages, and sent medical teams that have treated over 1,000 patients at no cost. Philip and Bacilia Beisswenger have worked closely with this ministry since its inception.        The 2024 “One Great Hour of Sharing” offering is designated for a ministry called “Honduras Medical Brigade.” This ministry is a Christian witness in Santa Rosa de Aguán, a remote village along the Caribbean coast of Honduras.
