God is working in my life in a powerful way, and I wanted to share a little of my story with you.
Brandon and I have been planting Grace Hills now for two years, and God has been so faithful. We love our church, our community and most importantly, seeing people far from God coming to know Him.
This November, a group from Grace Hills is going to Honduras on a short-term mission trip, and I have the opportunity to go. Going on a mission trip has always been a “someday” wish of mine, and having Drew this year seemed to push it even further into the future. But as I prayed, the Father made it clear to me that His will is for me to go this year.
I am excited about this adventure, as well as being a little scared. I become easily overwhelmed when I hear about the Honduran people. I’m praying daily that God would further break my heart with love for the people of this nation.
Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America. Two-thirds of all children are malnourished and lack access to basic needs such as clean water, adequate shelter, medical care and education. Our short-term mission trip will not cure their poverty or provide them with those basic needs long term, but we can give them the greatest gift mankind has ever known… Jesus, and this is my greatest desire.
I want to go out of a desire to care for the poor, especially orphans (James 1:27); to be a fisher of men and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost (Mattthew 4:19) and out of a deep sense of accountability before God as to how I meet the needs of others (Matthew 25:31-46).
During our time there we have a few goals we want to meet:
- Setting up various medical clinics in local churches
- Caring for and loving on the local children and orphans
- Laying concrete floors in people’s homes
- Sharing the Gospel with as many people as we can
I need your help. I need your prayer most of all. The Father has chosen to communicate with his children through prayer, and He invites us to make our requests known to Him because He hears our cries. Would you pray now for the Honduran people that I will meet? Pray that their hearts are softened and that they will be receptive to the life changing message of Jesus. Pray also that I will have courage to leave my 3 kiddo’s behind for a week, to lead well as I go with 19 other servants from Grace Hills, and courage to unashamedly share Jesus.
God calls some people to “go” and often leads other people to “send” those who are going. I believe firmly that what God orders he pays for. I don’t doubt at all that He can and will provide for my mission trip. However, I would be honored and grateful if you would pray about being a part of the trip by supporting it financially. The cost of my trip is $1700.00. If you feel led to give any amount you can make checks payable to me or to Grace Hills Church with “Angie Cox Mission trip” on the memo line and mail them to:

I’m so thankful for you and I look forward to updating you. Thank you in advance for loving me and praying for me.
