The goal is much more than just bringing clean water. It’s also about sharing life, building relationships, and ultimately introducing our compañeros to Jesus.
Over the last seven years, our Gospel Planting initiatives have really started to bear fruit. We have been blessed with a team of Honduran men who came from our water projects. They have seen their marriages transformed, developed a deep hunger for the Gospel and God’s word, and they have embraced the responsibility of leadership in planting the Gospel in the hearts of their communities. To support this team of men in their growth, we return to Honduras 3-5 times a year to spend time with them in more concentrated groups to study and show them how to apply the Word of God to their everyday lives and how to equip them to reach the hearts of the villagers in their community.
We take a three-pronged approach to Gospel Planting. Our Honduran Team goes back to the village after the Americans leave and deepens the connections with the men we have identified as “men of peace.” These are men who have studied the Gospel of John together during the week. Then our local leaders organize a Biblical community in which the men of the village study the Bible together. Finally, we host a Gospel Planting conference twice a year. We also host a key-man conference and a marriage conference each year to further equip our Honduran Team and the men who have come to Christ through this process from our water projects.
