Mark Mueller : June 2006 Update - Hands of Mercy Physical Therapy: Honduras Mission

Posted in Mark Mueller
[Mark and Hulda get married June 18, 2006]

When I last wrote I had just moved to another city, San Pedro Sula, to serve with Cure International, a mission that performs pediatric orthopedic surgery. Currently Cure is planning to construct a pediatric orthopedic hospital in San Pedro Sula, however this project has been delayed.

Previously I was going to have a larger role in the ministry but Cure informed me that my participation will be less until the hospital is completed. Cure has orthopedic surgery teams come periodically. For now I am going to help the teams as a translator and help parents with therapy for their children who have surgery. I will also refer children who need surgery from La Ceiba, the city where I was previously serving.

Supporting the Therapy Clinics: I have been traveling monthly to La Ceiba for a few days to support the two therapy clinics I started there. We had a team from Cure in La Ceiba in May where we evaluated 52 children for surgery. I referred many children from the clinics. A few needed surgery and were operated on at Cure's base in San Pedro Sula.

New Service Opportunity: In other activities I have been revising and updating my training program and exploring new opportunities to train people in pediatric physical therapy. I found an orphanage that has 70 children and most need therapy. I am starting the ministry there and hope to train a few people in therapy for the children.

Please pray for our wedding this Sunday, June 18, 2006, that God would be glorified and the guests that do not know the Lord would be touched by God's love and receive Christ as Savior!

Other Prayer Needs:

  • Financial Provision for my needs and the needs of the ministry.
  • That God would open new doors of service and bless the plans of the ministry.
  • Safety and Protection- San Pedro Sula is a city with much crime and violence.
  • Direction, Guidance, Wisdom, and Health.

Thank you for praying for the health of Hulda's father who had a stroke. He recovered briefly and then passed on last month. He was a believer and we are confident that he is with the Lord.

Note to financial supporters:
