Mission to Honduras: Pray, Give and Go

As many of you know, our family plans to go on a mission trip to Tegucigalpa, Honduras this summer.  We are very active in our local church and have been sensing God’s direction to expand our mission field. We are thrilled to have such an opportunity and are truly excited to help the people of Honduras.

We will be traveling under the covering of our church :  Common Ground

Our activities will likely include visiting shelters, sharing our testimonies, praying for others, visiting a deaf school and painting their building, sharing the Gospel through skits, street ministry, feeding the homeless, and helping in the construction of buildings that will aid the community.

In order to be able to go on this mission trip, we need help in two ways. First, we ask for your prayers. We ask for prayer for safe travels, strength and boldness so we can remain focused on God, allowing Him to do the work He has called us to do. Pray also that the Honduran’s hearts will be readied for an encounter with the love of God.  If you would, please leave your prayers in the comment section below.

Second, we need to raise $6,600 to cover the cost of travel, lodging, transportation, etc. for all of us.  Money is due almost every month, with most of it due the end of May.  We have been working very hard to earn the money but our deadline is coming up!  It is a large expense, but worth it to see lives changed.

For awhile now, we have been working hard to raise the needed funds.  We started Sweet Spot Flip Flops and have been selling baseball flip flops which have been a hit with baseball moms!

We also have been hitting the streets, selling toilet paper  Yes, you read that right!  We’ve been going door to door asking folks for donations in exchange for some toilet paper.  Everyone uses it, right!

This weekend the kids are participating in a church garage sale at Common Ground – all proceeds go to the mission trip.

With all these things, we still need additional financial support:  If you would like to support us financially, please send a check to CommonGround Church at 7810 E 49th St, Tulsa, OK 74145. Make checks out to CommonGround Church and add Solberg in the memo with a Honduras tag [Solberg-Honduras] OR go to commongroundchurch.tv and click on the “giving” tab. Then click on “quick give”, choose “missions trip”, and specify in the comments that the donation is for Solberg-Honduras.

Thank you so much and check back on the blog for updates on the trip!
