This Sunday morning we have the privilege of seeing and hearing from one of our missionaries: Aaron Halbert. Be sure to greet him when you see him.
Below is from their MTW Page:
Aaron was born in Honduras and lived there until he was 10. Rachel grew up in Mississippi. They met on a blind date in 2004 and quickly realized they both had a passion for missions. Because of Aaron’s background, he had a desire to one day return to Honduras. Rachel served on several mission trips to Haiti, during which she realized the great need for God’s Word to be preached worldwide. In 2006, they married and moved to Honduras to teach in a bilingual school outside of Tegucigalpa. While there, they became even more aware of the need for churches that teach the transforming power of the gospel (Rom.10:17).
Aaron and Rachel moved back to Mississippi so that Aaron could get an M.Div. from Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) in Jackson. While there Aaron served at Second Presbyterian in Yazoo City as the youth director and intern. Rachel taught at the local Christian school, then later left the classroom to be a full-time mom.
The Halberts are starting a new team in the capital of Honduras, Tegucigalpa. They are excited about what the Lord has in store and hope you will partner with them through prayer, financial giving, or both.
