Work & Witness is personal involvement in global missions. Cheney Church of the Nazarene has sent teams all over the world over the past 38 years through this program. Our greatest involvement has been developing the Nazarene family in Honduras. This coming year God has called for two more teams to continue to expand this effort. Whereas medical teams do not build physical structures, they do build interrelationships within the Nazarene Churches and a greater connection to the local neighborhoods. During the clinics the local pastor has a chance to meet people who would not otherwise come to their churches. Through prayer and presence of the Holy Spirit we have seen many people give their hearts to Jesus during these events. Medical Clinics build the Body of Christ, His Church.
Medical Clinics also improve the health of children, mothers-to-be, the elderly, and those who could not otherwise afford some help. Even in a short time much good can be done. Through Restoring Vision we have been able to give reading glasses "restoring sight to the blind" to the glory of God.
#1 Work & Witness: Cheney is sponsoring a team to Honduras in January 2020. This is a Medical Team to the Danli Region. The team is currently full with 16 members on the team. Doctors, medicines and supplies are ready to go. The team needs your prayer!
#2 Work & Witness: A second Cheney sponsored team is going to Honduras in February 2020. This is an witnessing and Medical Team to the North Coast of Honduras. This team is not full yet and it has 9 members at present. Pray also for this team. Consider joining this team.
We would invite you to come learn and share in what God is doing through us.
