The Honduran Fellowship of Missionaries and Ministries is a ministry that has long been in the heart of John and Adriana Mattica. Since their arrival in 2002, they quickly noticed they were not the only missionaries in Honduras. They also found many of these missionaries were tired, burning out, and most of all, feeling alone. In 2009, the Mattica’s started this new ministry with the purpose of promoting unity among missionaries through the creation of a network of communication and a commitment to helping each other as co-laborers of the Kingdom.

John is responsible for the leadership and overseeing the programs and strategic plan of the organization. He also manages the day-to-day operations including committees and staff.  Contact him for Honduran Fellowship policies, all residency questions, and applications for donation processing.

Marcy Fenn began volunteering with Honduran Fellowship in the fall of 2011 and is the Director of Member Care.   She is married with four children (2 in the States and 2 in Honduras) and has been a missionary in Honduras since 2008.  She currently resides in Santa Lucia (outside of Tegucigalpa). 

Marcy got involved in member care is because she saw a disconnect between what missionaries needed and what was available to them.  From her own experiences of being kicked out of a ministry, having to find a new place to live in 3 weeks with a family of 6, living in the countryside and then the city, and transitions involving physical moves and changes in ministry, she wished there was help with conflict resolution, processing dashed expectations, understanding transition and culture, and even the practical items such as how to cook with limited or substitute ingredients and where to find a dentist.  It then became her mission, in helping others answer the call of God on their lives, to figure out not only what missionaries needed to know, but to create a support system of resources, trainings, and help so they did not have to walk out their calling alone and so they can walk out their calling with joy.

Michelle Crotts began volunteering with the Honduran Fellowship in 2016.  She has been in Honduras as a single missionary since 2002.  She also helps run a camp and conference center going out of Tegucigalpa toward the south called Campamento Converge.  She primarily runs camps for the disabled population.          

Michelle became interested in missionary care is because she’s lived the lack of it.  She’s had seasons of life here in Honduras of great unhealthiness, of great isolation and of great emotional and spiritual turmoil.  In 2014, she was at such a point in her life that she took a sabbatical and was unsure of whether she would even return to Honduras. 

 We need to know that we have some place to turn.  THAT is why she joined the missionary care team.  We want you to know that you are not crazy and you're not alone.  Those questions, struggles and doubts?...we've had them too.  And we are here to help you walk them out.

Gordon MacKenzie began volunteering with the Honduran Fellowship in 2017.  He is married and has two grown, married children and one grandchild. He and his wife have been “empty-nesters” now for almost 8 years.  They have been in Honduras since 2014.

 

 Gordon came to Christ in his mid-30’s, graduated from Bible College at 40 yrs old, was a Senior Pastor for 7 years, obtained his Master’s in Counseling Psychology at 49 yrs old, then was an Associate Pastor in a second church for 5 years before moving to Honduras. From the time they felt called to come to serve in Honduras, he had struggles & challenges with the transition. He struggled and sometimes still does, with the many losses, cultural adjustments and transitions that come along with moving to, and working in, a cross-cultural setting. Not to mention, attempting to learn a 2nd language in your 50’s.

 He got involved with the member care team as a counselor because he has a passion for relationships:  to see them healthy, strong and growing.  Being a part of this team and serving missionaries has given him another way to serve here in Honduras and helped him to make even better sense of his call to Honduras.
