Orphanage Emmanuel – Honduras

Vision: To evangelize and disciple the children so that they may grow up to be living lights and good examples in the ways of God to their countrymen.

As of March 2020, David and Lydia have 426 children at Orphanage Emmanuel. In 1983 while sitting in a bible study here in Oxnard, the Lord gave them the vision for this ministry. (Go to their website to read the complete, miraculous story.)

They left everything and went to live in Honduras. On December 22, 1989, the orphanage was born! Several of our church family have traveled to Honduras to be a part of this ministry.

Connect with Orphanage Emmanuel through their
Facebook for more information.

Please pray:

  • Provision and Health for David and Lydia
  • Provision and Health for the children
  • Christmas to be a blessing to them
