Everybody has experienced COVID cancellations since the pandemic began affecting travel in March 2020. For Saylor & Katie Aylmer, one of those cancellations was the 2020 CCC mission trip to Honduras where we serve with Sparrow Missions.
But God, in all his goodness, is rewriting that cancelled trip! Read the Aylmer’s story to hear how God keeps working through their lives to reach people for Christ in Honduras!
While we were serving with Sparrow Missions in Honduras in 2019, we had a talk one night about wanting to come back. At that point, we decided we would go back with Christ Community again in June of 2020. God had other plans…and COVID. We weren’t sure we would be able to go back due to life changing.
Late July of this year, Sparrow made a post on Facebook about an open fall trip. As soon as we saw the post, without discussion, we both knew we would be joining that trip.
Sparrow Missions holds a special place in our hearts. When Justin Ross came to speak at church in 2018, we had just gotten married and were starting to tithe as a unit. We have been blessed and felt the calling. That day, we decided to sponsor a child through Sparrow Missions. This sponsorship not only provides essentials and education for the child, but more importantly, the children are surround by a community of believers.
It was such a blessing to be able to meet families and see the impact Sparrow has had on them. Being able to visit with our Sparrow and all the other kids was wonderful, many relationships were formed, and we are so grateful for that. Since then, we have grown our “Sparrow Family” and now sponsor two children.
We are looking forward to building relationships within the community, and spreading the Word. We had so much fun last time, how could we not go back? We are very thankful for Christ Community helping us connect with Sparrow Missions.
