Extreme Missionary Adventures
July 13, 2010
My first trip through XMA was in 2003 as a group of women from Rayville, LA went to the mission grounds in Olanchita, Honduras to minister to women who were either the wife of a pastor or a village leader. This was the first time women's ministry had been conducted in Honduras. The women's response to the teaching of God's Word to them was incredible. I had the privilege of returning in 2004, 2005, and again in 2010 to assist in ministering to the precious ladies of Honduras. These ladies have taught me how earnestly intercede for others, how to love unconditionally, and how women's basic needs and desires are the same wherever you are. We all want to love and be loved and to have the needs of our families met. They have taught me what is truly important in this life--loving the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Also this year I was able to spend one week with Osmany and Jennifer in Pane, Honduras. There a small group of Louisiana ladies conducted VBS to over 200 children and taught the Word of God to 19 women. To see joy in the eyes of children who have known only hopelessness made our own spirits jump with joy. To see women grow from feelings of such unworthiness that they wouldn't look at us during Bible study to clinging to us for individual prayer on the last day is beyond description. Our team also visited villages surrounding Pane to show them a movie about Jesus. The villagers had never seen a movie nor had they ever heard about Jesus. They now have seen their first movie and it was about Jesus. There were some salvations resulting from these visits. Praise God for His goodness in allowing me to share these wonderful experiences with ladies who love the Lord and are willing to give of their time, energy, and finances in order to walk in obedience to their Lord. Each time I have been chosen by my Lord to serve in Honduras the experience has been unbelievable in the natural for only God could do what I've witnessed.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
learning how to give of myself so that others could learn about Jesus through salvation and discipleship. The leadership XMA provides is incredible both in its office and on the mission field itself.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
how the love of God and the willingness to serve Him are the heart's desires of those lead the teams and those who are team members.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
of one accord in their desires to fulfill the Great Commission that Jesus gave to us.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
greatly expand its territory in spreading the Good News to unreached people groups.
