"I just wanted to let you know what an honor and a privilege it was to participate in your ministry. My experiences on this trip have left a permanent mark on my soul. The 'Cuba for Christ' ministry is on very solid footing and is doing impressive things in the face of less than favorable odds. You have some true warriors on the front lines there that are carrying out God’s message each day. Their sacrifice, determination and passion are truly moving and inspiring."

Nicaragua - October 2012
A team of 18 left for Nicaragua early October to continue to bless feeding centers and volunteers with the tools they need to minister to the children of their community. The men of this team continued our work on the wall around the church property at the Chinandega Dump and distributed boots to the men that scavenge through the dump on a daily basis.

Nicaragua - Summer 2012
This summer, HTF had the privilege of leading two youth groups, totaling 34 people to Leon, Nicaragua and surrounding villages to minister to various feeding centers/communities. Highlights of the trip were washing the feet of the children at the Chinandega Dump, giving them shoes & hosting a banquet to bless the pastors and volunteers of the feeding centers that feed over 8,000 children every week.

Nicaragua Construction - March 2012
March 1 - 5 HTF led a team to Leon, Nicaragua to build a warehouse for Sobre Las Alas Del Águila. This ministry feeds over 8,000 children, physically & spiritually every week. Thanks to God, our Provider, and faithful partners, the ministry now has property and storage for their incoming shipment of one year's supply of food. View pictures here!
Haiti - January 2012
Pastor Johnson is back from the field and making plans to bring baseball to Haiti! If God provides, looks like HTF will return soon to build a medical center with a baseball field out back. Please keep this project in your prayers!

The 2nd wing of Mercy Christian Academy is now "completo!" A team of 11 from Ocala, FL finished the interior walls, electrical, and painted the remaining classrooms. One of the rooms has been wired for multiple computer stations. (MCA's dream is to have a computer lab.) Thank you for your support and prayers toward this project!

"Amazing" is all we can say about the July mission to Jicamarca, Peru! The team accomplished great feats for the kingdom and left a piece of their heart behind, hoping to return in the near future. Check out the photos here! Three team members stayed behind in Jicamarca to put up the new church building, as the container was delayed. The church is now up and Iglesia Vida is enjoying His abundant blessings!
