CHRISTIAN HEALTH SERVICE CORPS
Mission: To glorify Christ through healing the sick, alleviating suffering, comforting the afflicted, and restoring the outcast.
Christian Health Service Corps (CHSC) is my SENDING agency. They receive all of my monthly support to deposit into my account so I can do ministry in Honduras. They have also provided opportunities for me to be trained and equipped in the medical ministry the Lord has called me to, including Village Healthcare Intensive and Community Health Evangelism.
CHSC have medical missionaries in Honduras, Peru, Haiti, Pakistan, India, Ukraine, Kenya, Uganda, Angola, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, and here in the United States.

HOSPITAL LOMA DE LUZ
Mission: To provide the best possible witness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through our words, our actions, and the living of our lives, while providing the best medical care possible to the people of Honduras.
Hospital Loma de Luz, through Cornerstone Foundation, is my RECEIVING agency. This means I will be partnering with them once I am on the field in Honduras. My ministry will entail working at the hospital alongside Honduran nurses, training Honduran nurses, taking care of and disciplining children at the Sanctuary Children's home, some of which have been abandoned at the hospital and have special needs.
Hospital Loma de Luz is the main hub for many Cornerstone ministries. The Children's Center, Bilingual School, Community Development, Evangelism/Chaplaincy, Church Planting and Agriculture Ministry was birthed from Loma de Luz, which employs approximately 80 full-time and 150 part-time Honduran staff.
The hospital itself is a 40,000 square foot, 50-bed mission hospital (in Balfate, Honduras) with 3 operating rooms, a recovery room, 2 labor & delivery rooms, an emergency department, wound clinic, physical therapy, a 2-chair dental clinic, optometry clinic, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, 18 higher acuity beds, and 8 outpatient examination rooms. The completion of the "casitas," is almost complete, providing more lower acuity beds for patients who need dressing changes or continued monitoring before being discharged home.
Each year, Loma de Luz serves 20,000 patients and performs 1,200 surgical procedures (between triage, outpatient and inpatient services, emergency room, and both inpatient and outpatient surgeries). Loma has a primary catchment area of roughly 50,000 people, and take referrals from Honduran physicians, nurses, and public health facilities from all over Honduras.
