09/2020 update

For years, other ministries have asked us to help them start programs like ours in other countries. 

This last year the doors began opening. One door is to start work in Romania. 

We prayed and received a clinic for Romania.  The clinic is just like the others we have in Honduras. They are setup as a family practice. We are working with the local ministries to find a place for the clinic that would lend the best Kingdom benefit of medicine and ministry.

Please pray with us for the provision of land, funding and staffing of this clinic and church. We are planning a trip to Romania to finalize the location and start work duplicating the programs we have in Honduras. We will be working to serve God reaching the poor of Romania. We are praying for teams to come be a part of this next chapter of Heaven’s Reach Ministries as the  work in Honduras continues. 

Romania's poor population is the poorest among the 28 European Union member states' poor populations as its annual income are below EUR 1,000 per person, according to NGO project The Social Monitor. ... Child poverty is high and rising,“ European Commission said in its latest country report on Romania.Nov 22, 2018.

One in five rural people lack access to potable water, and a third live without access to a flush toilet. The Roma, a minority group, face especially difficult circumstances, with an employment rate of just 28 percent and a poverty rate approaching 70 percent.

Victory Farms start to utilize it. We have been using 50 acres under a free lease for 7 years. We have reached the end of the lease.

We must move.

We must move by August 2019. We have been preparing for this for a year. But in three months ago the bank from whom we rent our ministry center, told us we need to move soon because they listed the building. 

We have found 170 acres that is suitable for the farm and the ministry center 

We can plant long term crops. This property costs $2,200 per acres. The owner is willing to owner finance this property for $100,000 down and then accept half of the “net-profit” from the farm till it is paid. This is a great opportunity to build the farm and the bible school. 

We know God has a plan and He will give us this land.

Please pray for the land and the facilities. The total cost of the land is $374,000 and another $50,000 to build the complex. God is sufficient to supply all our needs.

How to pray! Pray God gives us the:

  • Earnest money of $10,000 by June 19th
  • $100,000 for the down payment by August 15th
  • $50,000 to build the bible school by December 2019
  • For every $10,000 raised we will receive 5 acres

Description of the property:

Located in El Cerrón, Yamaranguila, Honduras this property has 1,700 acres 
mostly flat and is southwest of La Esperanza. Its 6 minutes from the main road.
It has two water ponds that receiving water from a bigger pond on the top of the property. A cement road is under construction to the property.
The property has two types of land, farmland that cost $2,600 per if we buy less than 85 acres and $2,200 if we buy 85 or more; and construction land with a cost of $6,400 per Acre (this part had water and electricity and is on the road). If we buy 85 acres or more, they will give us 5 acres of build land at $2,200.
We plan to buy 170 acres at a total cost of $374,000.

This will provide plenty of space to build our:

·       Dorm for teams and students

Prayer request:  God is an awesome God. And He is our provider.

We are asking for fervent prayer for our budget. The clinic is costing $3,500 a month. $1,500 of that is paying the doctor, nurse and the clerical person that serve the patients. The rest goes to medicine and supplies. We are blessed to have the wonderful staff that is a great part of the workings of this ministry. They would volunteer if they could however they all have expenses and need income. In Honduras they have Aguinaldo which is two months out 

of the year, June and December where they get payed double. This is one of those months. We have been making up for the shortfall of our budget where we can. God has given us special gifts to get by the last few months.

We thank everyone who is a monthly partner of HRM. We believe that God is wanting to share the blessing of being a part of this ministry with more of you. If you are not a monthly partner this is the time and the opportunity for you to became a part of Heaven’s Reach Ministries by giving $50 to $100 per month we can reach our goal of $3,500 for this clinic. If you want to give a onetime gift we need $5,000 to make it through this month and meet our obligations.

We personally have taken less from the ministry this year to help meet this budget. HRM receives $4,700 and our expenses are $7,500. That is an opportunity of $2500. Please become a partner today by clicking here or give a onetime gift by clicking here.

It comes almost completely equipped with exam tables, lab equipment, lights, a procedure chair, maternal/fetal monitor, plumbing and electric.

What does this mean?

  1. A permanent and stationary clinic for men, women and children in Intibucá, Honduras to come to 5-7 days a week.

  2. It will allow us to perform needed lab tests and physical exams that are needed to treat not only immediate illnesses but chronic illnesses.

  3. We will be able to give prenatal care.

  4. We can have periodic dental clinics using the procedure room.

  5. We can perform stitches or minor surgical procedures.

  6. We will be able to provide medications for not only colds and minor illnesses but for chronic health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and hypothyroidism.

  7. We will be able to have a continuous impact on the health of the poor of Honduras.

  8. We will be able to share the love of Jesus with every patient we see.


Why is this important?

  1. The maternal mortality rate is 100 per 100,000, which means that in 2010 there were 8,046 women that died during pregnancy or after delivery. Of this statistic most of these women come from the impoverished communities of Honduras due to lack of nutrition, prenatal care and lack of medical care.

  2. The mortality rate of children under the age of 5 is 23 out of 1,000 births. Which means that in 2012 there were 5,000 children that died under the age of 5.  

  3. 9.9% of infants born are born with low birth weight, which means 20,493 babies were born with low birth weight from 2008-2012.

  4. The Gross National Income for Honduras is $2,070 vs the GNI of the USA $52,610.

(Statistics are from UNICEF, Dec 2013 & World Health Organization)


What do we need you to do?

  1. We need prayer for this clinic to improve the lives of the Hondurans by improving healthcare, longevity of life, and quality of life and that the love of Jesus will be shown.

  2. We need $6,000 by November 17th to ship the clinic from the states to Honduras on December 1, 2014.

    These are the new villages we are working in this month. We found this village just miles from La Esperanza --no missionaries are there, nor is there a christian church. 


    There are over 600 people in this village cluster and no declared Christians. We are looking for teams to come and help us show the love of God to these villages.




    They received the new testament this week. If they read it all the way through, they will get a full version.

    Benefit Concert for Honduras

    Clean Water for Honduras


    Safe drinking water is scarce world-wide.  It is no different in Honduras. Greater Works Fall Tour will visit Fayetteville, Arkansas with the Rhett Canipe Concert benefitting Clean Water for Honduras.  You are invited to attend this concert November 5, 2010, at the Christian Life Cathedral Student Center, 7:00PM.  Please pass this along to your friends and family.

     

    Greater Works is a ministry from Dallas, Texas, providing clean drinking water world-over.  Greater Works has committed to drill a clean-water well for the women's shelter at the public hospital in La Esperanza.  This is the only free hospital available to the Lenca Indians.  Expectant mothers hike five hours, then travel two hours in the back of a pickup to reach the hospital where they will give birth.  They arrive at the hospital as much as two weeks early. The women's shelter provides a bed for the expectant mothers and their families.  Unfortunately the hospital provides no food and only unsafe drinking water to the women. 

     

    Two years ago, Heaven's Reach Ministries, along with Mercy International, initiated a communal garden project to provide food.  The garden failed for lack of water for irrigation during the dry season.  This water project will supply not only desperately needed clean drinking water for the women's shelter, but also indispensable irrigation water for the communal garden. 

     

    Please come and enjoy the music of Rhett Canipe, and support this important project.  $10 donation suggested at the door.
