The Mission Team

The 2015 Osman Hope Mission Team mission statement is:
To show Hondurans the love of Jesus by our self-less actions, our testimony, and our love while growing in our relationship with God.  This will be accomplished as we step out in trust, open our hearts to God's leadership and guidance through prayer, reading and meditation of His word and reliance on His Holy Spirit.

The Osman Hope Mission Team will be going on their trip from July 13-20, 2015.  The team consists of eight Avonworth students and three Avonworth parents who have worked together over the last school year to raise the funds required to make this trip possible.  Thank you to all our family, friends, & neighbors who are supporting us!

The team has been meeting monthly for the past 8-9 months to prepare for the trip.

And of course the girls spend time having FUN to build community together!

As our team makes final preparations from now until July 13th, please lift us up in prayer. Specifically pray for health and strength of heart and spirit for each team member.  For God to prepare each heart that is going and every heart that the team will encounter in Honduras.  And for all last minute travel details to come together the way the Lord would desire it.  We are surrendered to our almighty God for His provision & goodness on this special mission trip.
