Jason serves in Travesia, Honduras with Academia Deportiva de Travesia. The purpose of the sports academy is to mold boys into young men that will lead their future families, and entire community, in a new direction – towards following Jesus, loving and providing for their families, and serving one another. Jason works to connect deeply with these early teen boys using the discipline of sports to build self-esteem, provide English tutoring and educational support, and most importantly – introducing them to Jesus and helping them to learn to follow Him as the One who brings and sustains life. Along with the other missionaries at BVSA Travesia, he serves the community, helping in the name of Jesus with basic needs, prayer and support.
Jason and the team are currently preparing for the academy to open in April 2018. The academy is set to reopen in early April. Until then there is plenty to do! No day ever looks the same with various jobs and projects that are beginning or under way already. These range from maintaining the soccer field (weeds and ants are our #1 enemy!)… to getting netting and lights installed so the field can be used at night in order to get some relief from the 100+ degree days… to meeting with families and getting to know the community better.
We are faithfully trusting God each day. We’re excited to be a part of his plan to redeem this community. Thank you for joining us on the journey!
- For Jason. That he would be given the gift of language as he continues to learn Spanish and would transition well into the community in Travesia.
- For the boys. That they would see Jesus in all that Jason does and follow Him.
- For the people of Travesia. That their hearts would be prepared for the work God is doing in their midst and that they would learn to see how Jesus walked on the earth and do likewise.
