Our church, Gloryland Baptist, in Birmingham, Alabama has a ministry called Central American Missions. This ministry in Honduras is through missionaries Ronnie and Joanne Doss who work very closely with Bro. Graham Hutson from our church. Bro. Doss runs an orphanage that has about 70 children. He also has a Bible Institute that educates national pastors for the ministry. One of the ways that we are able to help is to ship 40 foot containers several times a year with clothes, shoes, and supplies for the orphan home, workers, and national pastors who depend on Bro. Doss. The purpose of this website is to provide updates on ship dates for the container and to provide you with information about the needs of this ministry if you would like to donate items or contribute to this worthy cause. We hope you will prayerfully consider helping us as we accomplish this task.

Christmas Container Updates

We are praising God once again for his provisions and blessings! We were able to
raise all the funds needed for the 2018 Christmas container. Thank you to the
churches who partnered with us!


In addition to being able to purchase gifts for the children, workers, and the pastor's
families, we were also able to buy items requested by Bro. Doss and the Schenks.  
We were able to ship some needed electrical and maintenance supplies. Medical
supplies were sent for a clinic to be set up in the Schenk's home. Each boy on the
property received a pair of rubber boots to work in the fields. We also sent arts and
craft supplies and games for the weekend family nights.  Some items for the children
with special needs were purchased and sent at the request of Christa, a lady from
Pennsylvania who works with the children with special needs.

I would like to share an example of how God provides the needs of this ministry every year.   Bro. Doss was asking for wheelchairs, walkers, and John and Romans! Bro. Graham said he had two separate men call him shortly after.  One man asked if we need wheelchairs and walkers. The other asked if we needed Spanish John and Romans!! It is amazing to see the Lord put this project together every year!
