New Year, New Beginning 2017 Reflections from Honduras

Greetings and blessings from the Jurkas in Honduras. As we begin 2018, we reflect on the goodness of our precious Lord and Savior, who continues to give hope to the hopeless and peace in the midst of conflict.

Honors Academy has continued to grow, and we are reaching out to more children than ever before. This year's enrollment is over 250 children in grades pre-kinder through 12th grade.  In the spring of 2018 we will have our first graduating class!

The Men's Prison Ministry experienced a huge turn this year. For the past 17 years, we have ministered to 600 young men in prison. We were recently blessed to see 50 of those young men extensively study and graduate from our course on the “Armor of God.”  Right after graduation all 600 men were transferred to a different facility. Please pray that God will finish the work that He has begun with these men.

The Women's Prison Ministry was born! Though God closed the door on the men’s prison ministry, He opened the door for us to minister in the women's prison to the 18th Street Girls. Women are opening their hearts to the word of God and His presence.  We are seeing lives changed on a weekly basis. God is so good and so faithful!

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for the continued support of love, prayer, and finances. We thank you for being a huge part of what we do here in Honduras!
