BOB & ROSA WOOD
Bob and Rosa live in El Piño, Honduras, where they direct two private bilingual schools together. They founded these schools— a kindergarten and an elementary school— a few years ago, and these schools are having an incredible impact on El Piño.
Bob has served as a credentialed minister with AIM in a variety of capacities over the past few decades: a pastor, an associate pastor, a youth pastor, a church planter, etc.
AIM has partnered with Bob and Rosa to establish Iglesia Methodista de Gracia (Grace Methodist Church), El Pino, Honduras so that they can start planting AIM churches in Honduras. The first of these Honduran AIM congregations, Iglesia Metodista de Gracia (Grace Methodist Church), is already in the works, worshipping together weekly, gathering together weekly for Bible study and prayer, and meeting the needs of folks throughout their community on a regular basis and in tangible ways.
Please be praying for and prayerfully consider giving to this great work in Honduras, and please keep up with these great works by subscribing to Bob’s newsletter by emailing him (below).
“Although I grew up in East Africa as the daughter of WGM missionaries, I never imagined that I would one day be called to be a missionary myself. When I first received my call while I was a college senior, I knew that God had begun a new thing and that I wouldn’t be going back to Africa as a missionary. But I still wasn’t sure where I would end up.
“It wasn’t until I was a seminary student that God began to put the Japanese people on my heart. Several of the other students taking classes, including two of the other women in the dormitory, were Japanese. It was through hearing the burden these two shared for their own people that God began to tug at my heart as well.
“For two years, I served as a missionary disciple in Japan, teaching English; working with children, youth, and college-age students; and learning Japanese. Now, as a career missionary with WGM, I am involved in church ministries, teaching Fun Fun English to children, and sharing the life-giving message of the gospel with Japanese young people.”

BRANDON & HEATHER WATSON
Brandon, Heather, and their three children live in Xilitla, San Luis Potosi, Mexico, where they’ve established and grown Hope International Ministries. Through Hope, they’ve helped plant and oversee around 40 churches and an additional 10 missions that are spread throughout three states: San Luis Potosí, Hidalgo , and Queretero. Most of these are house churches, but several have grown so much that they need their own buildings.
Brandon and Heather support 6 national pastors monthly, discipling them and guiding them in leading their own discipleship groups. They also minister through La Hora de Esperanza (Hour of Hope), a radio program that airs every Saturday. On top of all this, they actively minister through food distribution, Bible distribution, and blanket distribution, and their daughter, Cristina, leads a children’s ministry based out of their local church in Xilitla.
In the future, they plan to move both their home and their base of ministry to Hope Ranch, a 17-acre ranch they own in Xilitla. In the meantime, they have already begun raising 10,000 coffee trees on Hope Ranch and plan to begin harvesting, roasting, and selling their own coffee this coming January to support their ministry.
Exciting things are happening in Mexico, and the Lord of the Harvest is using the Watson family in powerful ways to establish the Kingdom of Christ. Please consider joining them in this great work through prayer and by giving.

DANIEL & BRANDI MCINTYRE
Daniel and Brandi have lived in Chiquimula, Guatemala, for eight years, serving the Chorti Indians with their three children— Levi, Mary Kathleen, and Uriah.
They founded and operate Eyes Wide Open Ministries, through which they seek to join the Lord in the many things they see Him doing.
Their desire is to work with local pastors to help them minister to their communities, and the centerpiece of their work is built upon opening their home to pastors, leaders (men and women), and youth from all over Guatemala. These guests stay for three-day periods, during which they receive Biblical leadership training by working together with trained pastors from both the United States and Guatemala who lead classes and provide material so that they will be equipped to then train others in their congregations back home.
Additionally, Daniel and Brandi minister in five public schools, teaching and playing with 1st to 9th graders, using Bible stories to share the love of God and develop moral values. They regularly visit the Chiquimula national hospital to pray for admitted infants and children, also giving toys, clothes, toiletries, and Biblical literature to the children and their parents.
They periodically host mission teams from the U.S., which accompany them into the mountain villages to visit families in their homes, distribute food and clothing, and pray with them. These teams visit the hospital and schools, and the children love to interact with these groups. When possible, mission teams are also able to help with construction projects, including working on the Eyes Wide Open mission center being built in El Morral.

We are a unique ministry and work to show the love of Jesus Christ to the hurting, needy and hopeless children in our community.

We operate with the help and assistance provided by concerned churches, businesses, and individuals through gifts of offerings, time, and most importantly, prayer.
Today, in this ever growing field of ministry, new and demanding needs and requirements arise on a daily basis. The current and most demanding needs are of monthly budget support and a larger facility. God has been so very faithful to show his favor to this ministry. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our Lord and Savior in this ministry. It is truly an honor!
