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 120 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.

Our ministry collects new and gently used items for Bro. Ronnie Doss
and his ministry. We ship the needed items to Bro. Ronnie Doss in Honduras
twice a year (once in the spring and once in the fall) in 40 foot containers.  


Shipping Ministry Updates
We were delayed in sending a spring container and have made the
decision to send one container at the end of October. We have
purchased two 40-foot containers to store items for shipment.  The
40-foot containers keep the items secure and out of the weather.
We currently have a full container of items to ship. However, there
are several specific needs for the ministry (see included list). We also
need to purchase Christmas gifts for around 60 children who live at the
orphanage, around 15 workers, and over 20 national pastors and their families.  
We are striving to raise $5,000 to complete this Christmas project.


We have recently had a Best Western hotel donate a great deal of furniture
for Honduras. They are remodeling and replacing all their furniture.  We have
also had a children’s clothing consignment company donate a great deal of
gently used children’s clothing.


How You Can Help

Honduras Updates
Bro. Rick and Mrs. Julia Schenk have recently moved to Honduras to work
with Bro. Ronnie and Mrs. Joann. They have committed to work with the boys
at the orphanage.  They will also help care for the orphanage and working on
the property infrastructure. The Schencks have established family night with
the boys each weekend. Many of the needed items include games, crafts,
and Spanish DVDs to help make these family nights fun for the boys.  They
are also looking to establish a clinic in their home and will need first aid supplies.
They have also identified many construction type needs, such as painting and
electrical repairs. For more information about the Schenck’s ministry, go to
www.intohisharvest.net.



Christa Miller is a lady from Pennsylvania that works with the girls
and the children with special needs.  In addition to spiritual training,
she is in the process of teaching the girls discipline. She wants to
teach them to play volleyball. Therefore, she needs a net and some
volleyballs. One praise she has had recently is that she has had more
girls saved this year than any of the previous years she has been in
Honduras.  She is also praying for a vehicle specifically for her use.

Bro. Ronnie, Mrs. Joann, and Janie are doing well and are in good
health at this time.  Bro. Ronnie is always anxious for people to come
to Honduras to visit and see their faith at work. Please continue to pray
for Bro. Ronnie and Mrs. Joann as they continue to lead this
ministry.

Gift Details


I have posted pictures of a gift from each age group so you could get an idea of exactly what we provide for each child.  We were able to raise $25 per child.  As you can see, many of the gifts are worth more than $25.  This is due to some of the toys being donated.  Also, we begin shopping early in the year.  In that way, we can find toys on sale and on clearance.  Each photo is labeled with the age group the gift is intended for.


4-6 year old boys


4-6 year old girls



7-9 year old boys


7-9 year old girls



10-12 year old boys

The Christmas shipment is on its way but prayers are needed!

We were able to ship on December 2nd! Again, we are overwhelmed by the Lord's provisions.  Thank you to all who had a part in this shipment.  Because there is political unrest in Honduras at this time, Bro. Doss needs your prayers.  Please pray that he will be able to get the container out despite the events that are happening in Honduras at this time.  We know the Lord knows about all the obstacles.  We are praying His will in this matter.
