 Honduras Mission House

Community <br>Profiles

On October 22nd family and friends joined Amelia Peters on Leeward Lane to extend a "Welcome Home" to Scott and Susan Ledford. Susan is the daughter of Amelia who they resided with her for five years prior to their leaving for Honduras to run a missions house on the beach in El Porvenir, Atlantida, Honduras where they have lived for the past 2 1/2 years.

Scott and Susan spent three weeks in the States shopping, visiting and talking about their mission at numerous churches in Florida and Georgia before returning to Honduras. There they host short term missions teams, supervise 11 feeding stations where they feed 1500 children 3 meals per week, oversee four (4) pastors, send young people to missionary schools and youth to bilingual schools and all is funded by the financial assistance from the U.S. and Canada.

Once a year Scott and Susan host a team called ARM (auto repair mechanics). These men and women come in to analyze vehicles owned by local Missionaries and Pastors, then they call back to the States where there is a team waiting to get a number of parts needed to make the repairs. This team buys the parts they can find, then flies them over, makes the repairs and keeps the vehicles operable. So far this year they have donated $8,000 in parts, diagnosed over 100 vehicles and kept 55 operable.

Other mission teams that they host are Doctors and Nurses who donate their time and set-up free clinics in remote areas where the locals have no medical attention. Construction teams that come in to build churches, houses, bathrooms and whatever else that needs to be done. They are currently building 3 new schools, and sponsor and work with two (2) orphanages, one boys and one girls.

If you remember, there was a sailboat parked behind the house on Leeward Lane call "Assurance", this is the mode of transportation that Scott and Susan took to Honduras, and I might add it was a tumultuous month long trip at sea.

Scott has personally started a boat building ministry where he teaches local fishermen how to build their own boats and provides the materials to do this. He has supervised and built 8 boats and these men are now able to feed their families. I might add that Scott gave his boat "Assurance" away to a group of local fishermen since it did not serve their purposes to go deeper into the jungles to reach more people. Since then he was given a new boat to serve this need.

Also, a special kudos should go out to all you Christian Bikers Association members who have donated over 7 motorcycles to local Pastors who meet certain criteria, and while they were here visiting they found out that they have donated four (4) more to give away before the Holidays!

Anyone wanting more information about participating in a missions trip to Honduras can contact either Missionary Ventures International, PO Box 593550, Orlando, FL 32859-3550, or Jane Cooley (Susan's sister) at 727-207-5553.
