Jorge is departing today and will be traveling through Central America and South America over the next couple of weeks. There are some demonstrations and protesting still going on that makes travel a little more difficult and we are monitoring his movements closely and communicating with him along the way.

Please help us by agreeing to keep him in your prayers.

The Importance of Clean Water

The Importance of Clean Water

In 2016 Connect Global partnered with the Community Water District in El Tamarindo to support a plan to give water to the residents of this remote and very water insecure town. In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the third phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. In August 2019 we plan to complete another clean water project in this area. Thank You for your support. 


Access to Water around the world is a problem

More than 600 million people still lack ready access to improved sources of drinking water.

Connect Global shares the message of Jesus through collaborative and sustainable solutions to needs around the world. One of the ways we complete this is through clean water projects. We decided to partner with the community run, Water Management District, in Valle, Honduras to come up with a sustainable solution for not only the well but a supply chain to provide water directly to each resident in a sustainable way.

Connect Global has chosen to be a part of the solution

We also hosted a team in Altos De Estiquirin in August 2018 to do work on an existing well and make connections so that each of their residents will have access to clean water. 

Our Next Water Project will be in San Lorenzo in late summer of 2019. You can come with us and help bring clean water to a community in Need!

How You can Help provide clean water to this town in Honduras

We are raising $5000 to complete this project and we need your help. Whether you can give $5 or $50 every penny counts. You can literally save lives by helping us. Clean Water can equal improvements in education, income and overall health.

In addition to clean water, our team has been able to help a local school get a kick-start to the new school year, and we also poured several new Concrete floors which will help several families by keeping the elements out of their homes.

In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the final phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. Thank You for your support. 


As you may remember, we began raising funds to assist a community in Honduras to drill a new water well in their town around December of 2016. 

We are proud to report that we have helped complete the next phase of this water project in this remote area of Honduras. 

Our team was able to install a new tank, plumbing, and electric pump to help satisfy the needs of the community and increase their water per household tenfold. 

The team from House of Grace church in Georgia partnered with us financially as well as by sending a very hardworking team to see the completion of this project.

Thank You to all who financially and spiritually invested in the long-term benefits of clean and healthy drinking water for this community of Estiquirin, Honduras. We are grateful!

Water Well Project - Update 2018

Water Well Project - Update 2018

We are very excited to share with you a fantastic update from Honduras. 

As you may remember, we began raising funds to assist a community in Honduras to drill a new water well in their town around December of 2016. 

Many people, organizations, and churches have given towards this effort, and over the Christmas Holiday, we received the amount needed to begin making this Water Well a reality.

One of our Partners in Honduras, Jorge Amador, has been helping us coordinate with the community, hire local drilling professionals, as well as provide oversight to the project. 

The drilling was initiated on Monday, January 23, and we could not be happier to report that the well was completed. The partners in Honduras also contracted the drilling team to go to a nearby town and drill a second well. 

Over the last year, along with our Honduran partners, we developed a plan to help this second town, Estiquirin, get their well completed and water to every resident. 

In August 2018, Our Team along with a team from House of Grace church in Georgia will be there to see the completion of this project. This is a big project and will cost about $4,000. We have already received $1,000 towards the goal and invite you to invest in the long-term benefits of clean and healthy drinking water for this community of Estiquirin, Honduras. 


Please continue to pray with us as this project proceeds and we wait to see this Clean Water Project be completed!  

Together we will not only provide clean water to this town but also a restored faith in Jesus because of answered prayers. Thank You.

Jorge Amador National Director in Honduras

Jorge Amador National Director in Honduras

Jorge Amador, our friend, and partner for the past 13 years has become the National Director for Honduras with Connect Global, please join us in welcoming him to the team. 


Jorge Amador, National Director for Honduras

Our team met Jorge over 13 years ago in the airport in San Pedro Sula. Travis, Gina and I all attended our first mission trip together which was organized and led by Morning Star Church of Tampa Florida. We landed on a small runway at a small airport just outside the city. We did not know anyone, as this was our very first trip to Honduras. 

We only knew to look for a Honduran named Jorge. 

Jorge quickly found us and took care of everything. He helped us navigate the hectic airport. He helped us load all of our belongings, we overpacked much more heavily back then, but above all else he greeted us as if he had known us our whole lives. 

Jorge has never been overly formal, in fact, he has always had a very comfortable, and easy going demeanor with us, as if we were brothers with different mothers, but still having the same Father. He is one of our Heroes of the Faith

On our first trip, we experienced the Honduras country-side for well over 8 hours in an old yellow dog American made school bus. 

 
 
Jorge Amador National Director for Honduras

Our team and all of our supplies fit snugly, but efficiently. Barreling down the roads of Honduras towards a small town called Cusuna, we felt every curve, and bump while getting a first-hand description of everything having to do with this new place we would be serving for the last 13. 

Jorge has always been ready to serve in any capacity needed. His wisdom, charisma, and compassion make him an immediate friend to everyone he encounters. His loyalty make him a friend you want to keep.. 

We, here at Connect Global, have decided to bring Jorge on as National Director for Honduras.

Jorge is a valuable asset to our leadership in Honduras and has greatly augmented our efforts. He has supervised several projects such as our recently completed water well in El Tamarindo, and will be our first point of contact in our upcoming Maternity Home Project in La Ceiba .

Thank You, Jorge, for all of your hard work.

Hero of the Faith - Jorge Amador

Hero of the Faith - Jorge Amador

Jorge Amador, our friend, and partner for the past 13 years has become the National Director for Honduras with Connect Global, please join us in welcoming him to the team


HERO OF THE FAITH - JORGE AMADOR

Jorge hosts teams of missionaries from the US into Honduras and takes them to Cusuna, La Ceiba, San Pedro Sula, Tegucigalpa and all points in between.  He leaves his family for up to two weeks at a time to make the seven-hour drive by bus.  He does this up to a dozen times a year.  This type of work makes it very difficult for him to find a regular job for income between these trips. 

He has suffered several terrible life tragedies and yet he continues to serve.  Even when he himself is in need of several basic items, on every call he speaks to me of someone else who is in need.  He wants us to buy food for her.  I want to buy food for him.  

I’ve known Jorge since 2004 and I’ve never seen him put himself before others.  I’ve yet to hear him request aid for himself at the expense of others.  He truly has the heart of a servant. 

Part of our trip next week will include blessing Jorge.  I’m sure we will visit the lady he has spoken to us about.  I’m sure we will bless him by buying her some food.  I also know we will financially, emotionally, and spiritually bless Jorge.  After all, he is my friend and a true Hero of the Faith. 

This year, (2017), we have brought Jorge on to our team at Connect Global as our National Director in Honduras. He is an amazing servant, always thinking of someone else and ready to serve at a moments notice. He has been a great asset to our organizationa dna great friend to each of us personlly.

Thank you and may God bless you as well as our new National Director in Honduras, Jorge Amador.

Please continue to pray with us as this project proceeds and we wait to see this water well be completed!  

Due to selfless giving, and efficient collaboration this Well will not only provide clean water to a town but also a restored faith in Jesus because of answered prayers. 

Unedited Truth: Helping Others

loverawtruth:

People are starving around the world and WE as in YOU and ME can continue to make a sustainable difference one village, city & country at a time.

Something spiritual and significant happens when you shift your focus from yourself and your own problems to helping others.

As Frederick Beuchner wrote so beautifully

"There can never really be peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. "
