 While in the USA, the Beards can be reached at: 515-868-6725

Reason #1:  
To raise awareness of the ministry happening

          God’s Spirit is changing the lives of children, teens
and their families in the rural mountains of southern Honduras.

          Your friendship, partnership and prayers are critical for our success!
Will you join our support team?

          [Paul & Barnabus] called the church together and reported everything God had done through them. Acts 14:27 (NLT)

Reason #2:  
To increase our financial support so we can influence more lives

          The Ranch’s current giving covers our basic monthly expenses as a family and the bare minimum for ministry. More money is necessary in order to expand the services we offer to the youth of Ojojona and Tegucigalpa.

We trust that God will provide for the ministries needs; Is He calling you to be involved financially?

You Philippians were the only ones who gave me financial help when I first brought you the Good News. Phil 4:15 (NLT)

Reason #3: 
To call the body of Christ to come along side us
by organizing short-term missions teams

          The majority of the Ranch’s construction projects are completed by groups and the money & labor they put into the buildings. Completed projects means more opportunity to share the Gospel.

          We also recognize the dynamic spiritual change that can happen during a missions trip. Marillyn and I are serving full-time as missionaries because of our short-term experiences. 

It’s a kingdom building investment at the Ranch and in your life. Is God calling you to invest a week of your life for His kingdom in Honduras this year?

The Holy Spirit said, “Dedicate Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them.” Acts 13:2 (NLT)

Reason #4: 
To recruit short-term (3 month) and long-term staff & families

          In the field, Rancho Oasis is a family of five that includes one Spanish speaking adult, a deaf woman and three children. We are stretched to the max and amazed at all the God is doing. We’ve seen God move even more when another adult or young person joins us in ministry.

          Reality is we can’t accomplish what God has called us to do on our own. God is preparing each one of us in the body of Christ to serve and advance His kingdom. Will you test God’s faithfulness to you at Rancho Oasis?

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 1 Peter 4:10 (NLT)

We look forward to seeing you this fall!!
Keep these goals in your prayers!!!

Oh wow, your coming to my small town! I bought your ice cream book yesterday and was showing my husband your site and he saw that you'll be in our town soon. We will put it on our calendars to come meet you and hear about the mission.
