The Mortensons’ March Update

March 2023


Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you so much for your faithful prayers, encouragement and financial support. This past month has been a busy one. If I had to characterize it with one word, it would be the word: Collaboration. The task of world evangelism is too great for any one of us, but Christ has called all of us to join together so that all may hear the good news of salvation. A great example of this is in the number of missionaries serving the Lord just here in Honduras. There are many ministries here and yet there is still a need for more.

Along those lines, every year on the first weekend in February, we, as a ministry team, host an enrichment conference called “Come Away.” This conference is in English and is designed to be a time of refreshing for missionaries in Central America. This year all of the attending missionary families were from other parts of Honduras, but in years past we have even had some come from Nicaragua and El Salvador. The conference is just 2 and a half days, but full of fellowship and great Bible teaching. This year’s speakers were Pastor Jeff Redlin (the pastor at PCC Campus Church) and his assistant, Pastor Tim Zacharias. Both men and their wives were a tremendous blessing to all in attendance (close to 80 including the missionary kids).

Later on in the month Cori and I were invited by missionary Sam Conover (who is ministering about an hour from us in San Pedro Sula) to come to their church Valentine’s activity. It was a privilege to preach on true love exemplified by our Savior to the group of about 20 couples, and it was also exciting to see how the Lord is at work in another part of Honduras.

Again, speaking of the idea of collaboration, two weeks ago I was able to work alongside men from three different churches as we mixed and poured concrete for the second floor of a building that will be used for Sunday school and children’s ministry at Pastor Alex’s church in Santa Barbara (about 2 and a half hours from where we are in the country). Again, it was a visible reminder that God is at work in many parts of Honduras, and it is such a privilege to serve Him.

Thank you again for your partnership in prayer.



  • Pray for God’s continued blessing in the Gospel’s advance not only in our city of Progreso, but all around Honduras.
  • For wisdom as I finish teaching the 3rd module of the theology class.
  • Continue to pray for wisdom as we grow in our understanding of Type 1 diabetes, and how to best help Blake. February 16th was the date just one year ago that we received his diagnosis.  Wow, has God been good!


From Honduras,

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
