Honduran Staff


Abner & Alisson Mejia
The GSCH has been without a pastor since November of 2010. For 16-months, many of you have been praying alongside us while we have been searching for a God-called pastor. Pastor Abner Mejia, and his wife, Alisson, have answered God's call to come serve alongside us to minister to the children, youth, staff, community, and local missionaries. Praise God for answered prayers!!! Please pray for Abner and Alisson as they begin their new roles on May 28.
Abner, born on July 12, 1982, has an extensive and impressive resume. He graduated from the Seminario Biblico Centroamericano de Honduras in 2005 and is a professor of theology. He also obtained his license with a speciality in Bible and Theology studies from the Seminario Teológico Centroamericano SETECA in 2008. Abner served most recently as the national director of ICTHUS. He loves to read, cook, watch movies, and spend time with friends. He is very outgoing and fun to be around! Pastor Abner can be reached at abner@bmdmi.org. Alisson, born on May 24, 1985, graduated from the school of dentistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Honduras. Alisson’s resume is equally impressive as her husband’s. She is a talented musician and vocalist. Alisson served most recently as a dentist in a hospital in Siguatepeque. She loves art, cooking, watching movies, going on trips, and spending time with friends. Alisson can be reached at alisson@bmdmi.org.

Avigail de Los Angeles Calona Nunez
Tía Abigail joined the GSCH staff on 6/5/2010. She serves as a house mother in casa verde and fills in as cook when necessary. Tía Abigail lives 45-minutes from the GSCH. Abigail's testimony is amazing and it is something that we must tell you in person. Her dedication became even more evident after we experienced her daily commute. She climbs up hills, steps on slippery rocks to cross creeks, crawls under fences, and walks through mud during the rainy season. Abigail never misses work; even during peak rainy season.
Abigail is a Christian lady that is working very hard and instilling great values into her children. You will absolutely adore her daughter, Maria Louisa.

Today, Carmen's daughter, Evelyn, is attending a university in Tegucigalpa and is pursuing a degree in Psychology. Carmen's son, Josue, graduated from high school in 2011 and is currently studying at a university in Tegucigalpa. Both Evelyn and Josue are very active in church and are wonderful Christian examples to the other children of the home.

Merlin Lizet Lagos
Tía Merlin joined the GSCH staff on 7/5/2011. She serves as house mother to girls in casita #1. As a new tía, we placed her with tía Carmen, one of our most seasoned tías, to give her an excellent opportunity to develop her skills as tía.
Tía Merlin lives at the GSCH with her young son. We weren't sure how we could keep her on staff. At one point, we thought we were going to have to terminate her employment due to low finances of the home. She broke down and explained that she was the only person working and earning income in her home. God gave us a way to keep her on staff and we're grateful that this young tía is learning and growing in her faith.
