Medical Supplies down to Honduras
In just a few weeks we will be sending some much needed medical supplies down to Honduras Central America. Two large containers are being filled up out of two warehouses in Pennsylvania with over 700 boxes of assorted equipment not to mention the 18 hospital beds, 50 wheel chairs, and much more which has been estimated to be over One Million five hundred thousand dollars. It is being shipped to the Port of Cortes just outside the city of San Pedro Sula. The cost of shipping these containers within the United States have already been covered.
Once it arrives at customs in Honduras it will need to be transferred to the City of La Cebia where it will be distributed to several locations throughout Honduras as well as the country of Guatemala. The total cost of getting them out of customs and shipped across the country has not been determined as of yet but the estimation is over $5,500.00. We are in negotiations with them in to try and get that cost down.
We are scheduled to leave for Honduras Central, America on the 17th of April 2015 with a small team of men to help facilitate the execution of the distribution of equipment to serval locations. We are in need of your help to offset these expenses.
In addition to the expenses of transporting the equipment across the country we are in need of raising our airfare for five persons which is at this present time $560.00 and $930.00 for the 12 days that we will be there. We will be holding several crusades across the country as well.
The success of our ministry is largely credited to people like yourself who our gracious with your financial support. We ask that you prayerfully consider helping us to achieve our goal in getting all of this equipment to the hospitals and medical facilities there.
As you can see, your financial support is extremely important to the ongoing vision of CGM. “Touching the Heart of a Nation.”
We want to thank you once again for your prayers and your consideration as we attempt to achieve or reach our goal and to finish our race.
Mardi Gras 2015
It’s hard for me to believe that the Mardi Gras outreach has come and gone. But we had some really exciting God appointed times coming and going there. I personally want to think all of those who helped shocked my buses. It was a smooth ride for sure.
On this trip we witnessed some amazing things happen. One of the elders of the first church that we stayed at received a healing. They said that he had colleen cancer but they could not do surgery because his heart wasn’t strong enough to endure the stress of the operation. Last report was that there was nothing wrong with his heart and that he was a candidate for the surgery. If God can heal the heart, then I think that he can remove the cancer as well don’t you? Amen!
We say huge amounts of people standing on the parade routs with their hands in the air as they prayed with us. There was one man who was with God Cares Ministries that carried a big cross in front of our floats. Over 100 people broke through the barrios on the sides of the road and ran up to him and hugged him and then they kissed the cross. Loyld said that he had never seen anything like that in all the years he’s been working the parades.
I don’t know what it was like in the other four camps that were with us, but in ours we experienced the loving touch of Gods hand as he healed the broken hearts that were there. Many received a deeper walk with Him and returned home with a fresh zeal to serve God. Working to be better husbands, employees, as well as serving in the home churches.
We are now making our arrangements for the next adventure for the team at Common Ground Ministries. We will be leaving for Texas to hold a tent meeting with a good friend and Pastor Hugh Varner. We have worked together throughout the years from the prisons to New Orleans, as well as into the country of Honduras, Central America.
We are leaving on the 30th of March and will be there until April the 5th. Unless the Lord wants the meeting to continue. We are open to what he wants for us.
Easter at CGM
It has been a tradition for CGM to host an Easter Celebration on the Property. Starting at 1:00 bring chicken and a dish to share and get ready for a day of refreshing and fellowship. There will be an Easter egg hunt and lots of games for the kids so come and join us if you can. Fishing is great on the lake and the food is always off the charts. It’s a time that you don’t want to miss. Not charge just good old fashioned fun with family and friends.
Plans are being made to go to Honduras, Central America on the 17th of April and then returning on the 28th. If you’re interested in going with us then you need to contact us ASAP please. The information for the trip will be posted soon. If you have any questions you can call me (Wayne) at 918-231-5664.

Hello mighty men of God
I read an article that I found on the internet from a Susan B. Bosak and through that I would just quote from her paper as she said:
What is Legacy?
“Legacy is about life and living. It’s about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future.
Where do you think it's best to plant a young tree: a clearing in an old-growth forest or an open field? Ecologists tell us that a young tree grows better when it's planted in an area with older trees. The reason, it seems, is that the roots of the young tree are able to follow the pathways created by former trees and implant themselves more deeply. Over time, the roots of many trees may actually graft themselves to one another, creating an intricate, interdependent foundation hidden under the ground. In this way, stronger trees share resources with weaker ones so that the whole forest becomes healthier. That's legacy: an interconnection across time, with a need for those who have come before us and a responsibility to those who come after us.”
NGL has left us at Common Ground Ministries with a Hugh legacy that has helped to equip men from all walks of life to grow healthy and strong in God. I have personally learned and benefited from years of experience that has been handed down from NGL training.
It is my desire to continue in the legacy that has been left to us through the ministry of Fred Bishop of No Greater Love ministries. Together we can make a difference for our future. Won’t you consider coming to the Indy 500 Race 2015 and help to make an impact in our nation?
We are limited in what we can do by ourselves. But with your help we can, and will continue in the legacy “learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future.

News Letter Nov-2014
Hundreds flooded the alters to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior and many more came to rededicate their lives to Him. Honduras has been torn apart from the gangs that ruthlessly take away lives for seemingly no reason. The fear that has swept across the nation has paid its toll on the people.
Yet, out of all this chaos, there is an emerging fire igniting within the hearts of the people a desire to return to God for the protection that has been evading them for so long. I want to personally express my gratitude for all of you that helped send us to this country that God loves. It may be a third world country, but it is filled with first class people.
