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.

The Container Shipped!

The container was shipped out this past Saturday (11/15/14)! Please pray that all goes well as it passes through customs and Bro. Doss is able to get it out without an excessive amount of fees.  Thanks again to all who contributed items and made it possible for these precious little ones and their caretakers to have a good Christmas. To God be the Glory!
