Working with Immigrants and Honduras
At the age of 47, Star Ferdinand went on her first mission trip to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Four years later, the words ….“Your heart is in Honduras” echoed in her mind as she wrote in her journal, “I’m not ready to move there permanently, but I definitely want to spend more time there after I retire.” On June 9, 2011, at the age of 55, Star moved to Tegucigalpa.
After teaching English to teenagers and adults at Iglesia Misionera de Cristo in Tegucigalpa for several years, Star returned to the USA to work with immigrants. Following the Lord’s leading in 2018, she helped her home church, Westside Fellowship in San Antonio, establish a Language Ministry to help immigrants and international students learn English or improve their existing English language abilities. This ministry includes four programs:
- FriendSpeak (conversational English for intermediate-level speakers)
- Square One (conversational English for advanced beginner-level speakers)
- Basic English as a Second Language
- English for Advanced Beginners
Star also plans to return to Honduras periodically to continue helping the people of Iglesia Misionera de Cristo.
I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. -Romans 15:30
