The Lord allowed us to serve together in the Dominican Republic with SCORE since 2008 (Ryan as a single missionary since 2002). We moved to Honduras in July 2014 where we are assisting in church planing and church mobilization. We have a strategic ministry partnership with Iglesia Bautista Renacer (Born Again Baptist Church) in San Pedro Sula. It is our desire to help train pastors and lay leaders with little resources, to disciple and to mobilize the local church to do the work of evangelism in Honduras and all over Central America.
