Ministering to the Children of Honduras
Praying over the girls who turned 15 that year at their Quinceañera.
We are called as a ministry to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the poor and needy of the world. We want to demonstrate the love of God through helps ministries and declare that Jesus is the Lord and Provider to those who have neither heard the Gospel nor seen it in action.
Our primary focus has been to minister to the physically and spiritually endangered children of Honduras. The name of our ministry, Such Is The Kingdom, appears in Matthew 19:14 where Jesus says, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
Though SIKM covers many areas of ministry, the following projects are the current focus:
The church network is a key part of the vision of the ministry. The goal is to train local pastors to evangelize and disciple the people of the community in their Christian walk. A church chapel building is located on the ministry property serving the girls and the local community
A medical clinic exists on the ministry property. Fully equipped offices are available for both physicians and dentists. The clinic assists with the physical needs of the local people, as well as serving as an evangelism tool to win the lost. The clinic serves as a base for medical and dental brigades from the United States to minister to the people of the area.
PROJECT TALITHA CUMI
This ministry lies on eighteen acres of land in the western Honduras mountains.
The words Talitha Cumi are Hebrew for "rise up little girl". This is our basic theme for the girl's home.
Our desire is to raise up young girls in their own country and culture; teaching them Christian values by evangelizing and discipling them. Our goal is to train and equip them for ministry using their spiritual gifts and talents throughout the nation of Honduras.
In keeping with this goal, our desire is to educate the girls in their native language of Spanish to meet their domestic needs, and an English curriculum is taught to better prepare them for possible continuing education opportunities.
Our desire is to provide a safe home atmosphere for the girls, whereby they will always have sisters, a family, and a place to call home.
CASA DE NAIN
Casa de Nain is a newly established boys home in Honduras led by Suzanne and Wesley Jarrard. They currently have 4 boys in their home and the boys attend the same private school as the girls and have a similarly run home.
