Vacation Bible School - Touching Lives!

We are excited to announce that we have two new members of the Board of Directors:
  • Drew Stockton – Mission Pastor from The Grove Church, Lenoir City
  • Corey Haney – Mission Pastor from Northstar Church, Knoxville, TN.
Both of these men share the vision and values of Open Eyes Ministries.
At the same time, we will miss Pastor Scott Cagle and Evan Crass, have served OEM faithfully for many years and have certainly been a blessing to us. Pastor Scott and Evan you will be missed.
Dr. Ron Noe has been elected as President of Open Eyes Ministries for 2017-2019. We ask that you pray for him and his wife, Judy, as they lead the way.
We are also happy to announce that Pamela Castellon and Hans Aeschlimann have been promoted to Directors of Honduras. As Arlene and I are spending a little more time in the U.S. and traveling across Central America to pour into our leaders. It is important that they are recognized for the great work they are helping us continue in Honduras. Arlene and I have confidence that they will bring a great harvest and expand OEM’s ministry there.

June/July News and Events

We just returned to Comayagua after spending ten days in Costa Rica working with Pastor Edier, Katia, Faith Promise Church, USA and Faith Promise Church, Costa Rica. The purpose of this trip was to expand their youth ministry in Costa Rica.

Pastors Zac Stephens and Jeremy Fine brought great words of encouragement and FPC-CR Youth leaders caught the vision. Sunday, May 21st there was record attendance of 460 attending the worship services, including 90 youth in attendance. Great times in Costa Rica.

As you can see from the picture, we have started our 5th year of teaching Leadership principles to the 3rd year students and future leaders of Honduras at CRUC.

Thanks to all of you who pray, visit and promote Open Eyes Ministries to your families and friends.
