Mississippi Concerts for Honduras
Karen joins Jennifer Bullock for Ministry in Honduras
In February Karen traveled to Mississippi to help Jennifer Bullock raise money for the ministry to families in Honduras. Karen has helped coordinate several missions outreaches in Honduras together with members of her home church, First Baptist Church of Santa Fe. Although the one week ministry trips started out as a YWAM Santa Fe project, the interest and commitment of First Baptists has grown so much, that they are now the main organizers of it. Karen and others from other churches, will continue to be part of these trips.
Jennifer Bullock, former YWAM Santa Fe staff, is now spending most of her time in Honduras and has become very involved in ministries to families. She has taken babies into her own house that were very undernurished and nursed them back to health. She also coaches the young mothers in how to keep their babies healthy. She continues to work with New Enterprise International (NEI) about three times a year in hosting short term teams. Having been raised as the daughter of a Youth Minister, she has found it a natural thing to take on the youth ministry of a local church in Pena Blanca, the village in which she lives and works.
Karen was able to work with the choir and praise band at Meadowood Baptist Church in Amory, Mississippi to arrange a concert fundraiser for the Jennifer's ministry in Honduras. Jen and Karen also gave presentations at two other Baptist Church in Mississippi. Jennifers stories of the ministry to the babies and families in need are very touching and the response was very good.
Jennifer's goal is to raise enough to buy a vehicle that could transport her and others to the mountains where many of the people live who are so in need. Our concerts helped add finances to that goal, but there is still a lot needed before she can buy a sturdy vehicle for this need.
