A Closer Look…
We are a faith-based ministry and receive no government funds from Honduras or any other country. My husband and I live on ministry grounds and have intentionally chosen to live without many modern luxuries in order to be better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us. It is our commitment to ensure that the funds donated to us go toward helping those in need and providing meaningful employment to dedicated Honduran Christians. This, in turn, helps diminish the tidal wave of Central American immigrants seeking a better life on American soil.
We generally have need of shoes, school supplies, musical instruments, etc., but the best way to help in those areas is through a monetary donation. It ends up being more cost effective to purchase what we need here rather than having it shipped to us from afar. Also, this way we support the Honduran economy and help sustain local workers.
Our ministry has grown considerably since its inception in 2013. We began by serving three children and now actively shepherd over 40, not including our students’ families and neighbors who are frequently involved in our ministry activities. Our monthly expenses generally include:
- Pay/sustenance for our dedicated team of Honduran missionary-teachers
- Upkeep costs for our household with our 6 foster teens
- Legal and educational costs associated with operating a school/ministry
- Gas and maintenance for our old truck, electricity for our property, food for our guard dogs, etc.
If you desire to take the route of supporting this ministry financially, you can go to www.CTEN.org/JenniferZilly, click on the “Donate USA” button and then follow the steps to make a one-time or recurring monthly donation, all of which is tax-deductible. We directly receive 93% of the funds given through Commission to Every Nation (CTEN), as the other 7% is shared with our missionary cooperative for the accounting and newsletter services they provide us.
From there, you will be put automatically on our newsletter list, which we send out in printed form a few times each year with testimonies, prayer requests, etc. (The envelope will say “Commission to Every Nation” with our name or Living Waters Ranch written somewhere on it.)
