HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL and what a blessing 2015 was to Open Eyes Ministries. Thank you for your prayers and financial support. Following are some of the awesome opportunities God provided for us in 2015.

  • Funding for hundreds of children and adults to receive food, clothing, and fellowship, daily and weekly
  • A home, food, clothing, schooling, and Biblical instructions for seven beautiful little girls. (Home of Hope)
  • 40- six- week school classes for 6th graders where 820 of these made professions of faith while receiving training in Values and Ethics
  • Two schools; one in Nicaragua and one in Comayagua, Honduras
  • 34 mission teams, sharing their talents, finances, and love with the people of Central America
  • Funding for the building of numerous churches, where there were no churches
  • Opportunities to reach and build relationships with Churches, Businesses, Organizations, Universities, Elementary Schools, the National Police, Fire Department, Honduran Air Force, and much more
In 2016 we need your help in keeping these opportunities going through prayer and financial support.

January News and Events

Needs for 2016

Two new opportunities we need funding for are:
  1. Repairing the National Police barracks in La Paz, Honduras. They need our help to replace a leaking roof, repair a bathroom that is unusable, and repair a sleeping room, which needs new wall, new bunk beds and mattresses. These brave men and women risk their lives everyday on the streets and then come back to terrible conditions. The total cost is $12,000 and every donation whether large or small is greatly needed and appreciated and will help towards the goal.
  2. Sunglasses to give out wherever we go and share Christ. A standard box of 400 pair will cost approximately $200. Everyone in Central America needs Jesus and sunglasses.

Prayer Requests

  • More people reached for Christ
  • OEM staff
  • OEM Board of Directors
  • Arlene’s Mother went to be with Jesus on December 2, 2015. Thank you to all who have prayed with Arlene over the years for healing. She has now been healed but will be sorely missed. Arlene and the rest of the family still need your prayers.
  • Decisions that are being made as OEM looks at plans for 2016 and the future
  • General budget donations. Although each of our specific ministries and projects always need donations, unless our general budget needs (staff, administration costs, transportation, etc.) are funded, there would be no OEM Central America.

Dates Open
We have plenty of good dates open for 2016 for teams to visit and be a part of the miracles of Central America. Contact us by email at or by Facebook.
