The Making of National Champions

Saludos a ustedes,

Back in 1998 when I travelled to Honduras for the first time as a bare-faced teenager I never would have imagined that I would spend the majority of my time planning and praying about transforming a nation as a bearded bloke almost sixteen years later.  Then again, "No sé nada, y Dios sabe todo." 

After a decade into this business I became disgruntled with the way mission teams venture to Honduras with a short-term focus.  I even considered leaving the field to escape what seemed insurmountable obstacles.  A few years back, however, God partnered AHMEN and SIFAT to empower short-term missionaries with a long-term missions focus.

Today, the AHMEN-SIFAT Initiative runs a series of 3-year community development, practical health training, and leadership workshops throughout Honduras offering local leaders the training they need to transform their communities.  It is the BEST shot AHMEN has in leaving a positive legacy with the Honduran families to which we pledge ourselves.

Why am I telling you this?  Well, first, I am asking you to begin making a monthly pledge to fund the AHMEN-SIFAT Initiative starting this month.  Pledges as little as $10/month will make a GIANT splash in the bucket.  And second, I am asking you to join a team to work with the community agents being trained in one of the three workshop areas of Cusuna, Jutiapa, and/or Yorito.

Click any of the links throughout this blog to read more about my philosophy surrounding ASI.  Contact me to inquire how you can join a team to work with ASI community agents, and begin sending your monthly donations in today.

Send your tax-deductible donations  made to “AHMEN” with “AHMEN-SIFAT” on the “For” line to:
         AHMEN/Sharon Bowie                                                       Visit honduranmissions.com to make
           516 Ridgeview Dr.                            or                                               your donation via PayPal
           Jasper Al 35504

Won't you work with me to help transform local Honduran leaders into the champions of their nation?  You can even send out this letter requesting your friends and family become monthly donors too!

Together, we are the difference.
