Dear Prayer Partner,
Oswald J. Smith said, “I have seen the vision and for self I cannot live; Life is less than worthless till my all I give.” We, by God’s help, desire to give our all for Him and to the people He has called us to.

We are happy to announce that two of our supporting churches are working hard on a “Christmas In Honduras” project for the children at Hogar de Amor. More details will follow in our next update, but please be praying about how you can be involved as well. It is such a privilege to be able to give!
Our support level has risen to 70% just in the last few days! We are so thankful for another supporting church in CT partnering with us. Since we plan to be on the field by the end of the year, if you are still considering getting on board with what God is doing in Honduras, don’t hesitate any longer! As Christ’s return gets nearer all the time, our time to make a difference grows shorter. Why not decide today to lay up treasure in heaven by giving to the work in Honduras?
Chris was able to travel over 4000 miles on a trip that took him to churches in Butte, Whitehall, and Billings, Montana. God blessed the services, and many made decisions regarding missions. Praise the Lord! Chris was also able to catch up with Evangelist Kyle Gilstrap. Kyle and Tressa traveled with us for a month last year and God is using them in a great way!
August will allow us to present the work in Lancing, TN, St. Mary’s, GA, and Brunswick, GA. Our fall schedule is very full of conferences and meetings, but we still have a few openings. Contact us if we can be a blessing to you. We are praying for just a few more meetings to reach our support goal by December.
Our ministry partners, the Jarvis family, will be moving to Honduras in October. Their house is still being finished, so they will be living temporarily in another house on the property. We are thrilled for them and can’t wait to join them! Please keep them in prayer as they have many loose ends to tie up and funds to collect for startup. Our other ministry partner, Carol Carney, has her first meeting this month. Please keep her in prayer as she endeavors to be on the field with us by next summer. If you know of a church wanting to be involved in her medical ministry on our property, please contact us and we will get you in touch with her as soon as possible.
We are working on our setup fund! We are planning on moving in December and need to cover the cost of airline tickets, passports, container fees, import taxes, clean water systems, transportation etc… We know so many of you have done so incredibly much and it is hard for us to even present this need. We have setup a GoFundMe account for donations to the setup fund. Any donation is a HUGE help! gofundme.com/birkholz
Once again, we do not take you, our prayer and financial partners, for granted. May God richly bless you for your support of our ministry!
Sincerely In Christ,
