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.

The fall container shipped on November 16th! We received word from the Bro. Doss that the container has arrived on the property and has been unloaded. We were able to ship 1,000 Spanish Bibles, Christmas gifts for the children and the workers on the property, and more. We send each child an outfit, a pair of shoes, school supplies, and toys. We also sent Christmas gifts for the pastor's and their families. We were thankful to have over 10 churches partner with us on this project!
We are hoping to ship the container on November 16th! If you are collecting items, please contact us to schedule a drop off time! We have received a list of needs for the orphanage. I will include the list below.
The container shipped May 11th and has arrived. Bro. Doss has already started installing many of the windows and doors that were shipped. Mrs. Doss was very happy to receive a small garden hoe she has been wanting for a while! Thank you to everyone who sent items and funds for the spring container!
We are planning to ship our spring container in May. We have had a great deal of children's clothing and bedding donated. We have already prepared over 100 boxes for the next container! Praise the Lord! Please see below the list of needed items for this container. Please consider partnering with us to help collect these items or to collect money for the purchase of items!

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!
