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.

Thank you to Nick and Jay from our church for taking the time to make these toddler beds! The workers at the orphanage expressed a need for small toddler sized bunk beds!  However, the cost to buy these from the store was very costly.  Nick and Jay were able to make these for a fraction of the cost.  We shipped three with the mattresses and sheet sets! This is just another way God provided yet again. 

Saturday's Shipment-A Success!

With God's help, we successfully loaded and sent off another container.  Thank you again to everyone who donated their time and resources to this project.  We were able to provide each child and each pastor's family a Christmas box.  We were also able to ship many of the items needed specifically for the orphanage, such as, a swing for handicapped children, small kitchen appliances, and laundry tubs.  I am amazed but not surprised at the Lord's provisions!

6 Days Until Shipment!

We had a great turn out for the work day today! Over 30 people stayed after church to help sort, box, and label the remaining items! Only 6 days until shipment! The Lord has once again provided all the needs for the shipment.  We will use this week to finalize the details and then load everything up Saturday morning.  God always provides exceeding abundantly more than we could ever ask or think!

Thank you Ms. Robin!

Thank you to Ms. Robin from The Bible Baptist Church of Deland, Florida for making these cute skirts for the girls! It is hard to find modest skirts to buy and send.  May God bless you for donating your time and talent!

Answered Prayer!

Thank you for praying with us as we are preparing to send the Christmas container.  The Lord has impressed it upon many people to give their time and resources to help make Christmas for the children a success! Thanks to the prayers and generosity of God's people, our warehouse is almost full!

Special Thanks!

Thank you to everyone from Gloryland Baptist who came out Saturday and Monday to help sort clothes! Also, thank you to Kids Market for donating items to be sent to the orphanage!

Next Ship Date-November 19th

Lord willing, the container will be leaving our church on November 19th heading for Honduras.  If you have any items to be dropped off for donation, please try to have those to us by November 12th! You can contact us to schedule a drop off time at a time that is convenient for you! Please pray that the Lord would continue to provide items for this shipment!

Next Shipment-Beginning of November!

Lord willing, we will be shipping the next container at the beginning of November to ensure that Bro. Doss receives it by Christmas. We are currently accepting donated items.  You have heard the saying "your trash is someone else's treasure."  We by no means want you to donate trash.  However, what I am trying to emphasize is that the need is great.  Things that may mean nothing to you could mean a higher standard of living for the people in Honduras.  Please consider donating your gently used items to this ministry.  There are also many end of the season sales going on at this time.  This is a good opportunity to purchase new items at a good price.  If you have items you would like to donate, please contact me to schedule a drop-off time.

Thanking God for a Safe Trip to Honduras

Our church along with Straight Paths Baptist Church was able to spend the week last week in Honduras at the orphanage.  While we were there, we were able to paint the exterior of most of the buildings.  We also helped with the cleaning and with organizing the items from the recent container.  We always go with the goal of being a blessing but are always blessed beyond measure in return.  We came home praising God for a safe and productive trip all for the glory of God.

Next Ship Date-June 11th

We will be shipping the next container on June 11th.  Our container will consist of mainly doors and windows.  We have also had many people donate used clothing, toys, and household items for this shipment.  In January, a lady who owns a local bridal shop donated around 45 wedding dresses she used as samples in her shop.  We were able to put them in a consignment shop and have made around $1000 from the proceeds so far.  This has enabled us to buy new undergarments and a great deal of new clothing and shoes for the orphanage.  A month ago, the warehouse seemed empty, but God has used his people to fill it up just in time for Bro. Doss to give us the "go" to ship the container. Thank you for your continued prayers and support to this ministry!
