Hands of Mercy December 2004 : Ministerial Summary of Mission Honduras

Posted in Mark Mueller
[]

In 1997, missionary Mark Mueller, guided by the Holy Spirit, became a member of Congregation Lion of Juda. Mark accepted the challenge of becoming a member of a Spanish speaking church with a different style and culture. During his membership, Mark has contributed to different ministries in our church such as serving as an usher and in Prison Ministry, and as an English teacher in HERC.

In 1991 Mark graduated from Boston University where he obtained a degree in Physical Therapy. His desire to help children motivated him to specialize in Pediatric Physical Therapy. Mark’s profession has enabled him to bless the lives of hundreds of children in need, especially Hispanic children from the State of Massachusetts.

Through the years, God planted the missionary seed in Mark’s heart. After a long process of prayer and discernment, Mark felt the call to go to Honduras and work as a missionary. Once again, Mark responded to God’s call leaving everything aside and moving to the beautiful land of the “Cacique” Lempira.

Mark has been serving as a Physical Therapist and Missionary in La Ceiba, Honduras since November 2003 with the “Amor Viviente” (Living Love) church in La Ceiba, which has been kind enough to receive Mark and integrate his ministry in the church. Through Mark's testimonies we have learned about the great need for physical therapy in that region. When Mark began his work in La Ceiba there were no services for the many children who suffered from physical impairments.

Phases of Mission Honduras:

During the first phase of this project Mark spent some time visiting villages and cities of Honduras. Mark had the opportunity to learn of hundreds of children with physical disabilities that were not receiving any type of rehab treatment. These experiences motivated Mark to advocate for a rehabilitation center for disabled children in the city of La Ceiba.

During the second phase of the project Mark initiated physical therapy training workshops for church volunteers. Mark, guided by the Holy Spirit, reached out to the community overcoming cultural and religious differences. Many brothers and sisters from “Amor Viviente” supported this effort and joined this training opportunity. Currently, there are about 20 volunteers who have participated and finished the workshops.

Future Plans

The third phase involves the creation of a network of rehabilitation centers throughout the region. More volunteers are expected to join this noble effort. Now more than ever Mark needs our spiritual, emotional, and financial support. We know the road ahead brings many challenges. However we know that all things are possible for those who trust the Lord. We praise God for Mark’s commitment. We encourage you to join the effort. Let us bless the people of every nation, tribe, and tongue. May the Lord bless you abundantly! Thank you.

Reflections:

"How blessed is he who considers the helpless; the Lord will deliver him in a day of trouble." Psalm 41:1

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

35 "I was hungry. You gave me food. I was thirsty. You gave me a drink. I was a stranger. You took me in. 36 I needed clothes. You gave me clothes. I was sick. You came to visit me. I was in prison. You came to see me." 40I tell you the truth. What you did for even the smallest of these people you did for me. They are my brothers." Mateo 25:35-36, 40
