Hord Family Missions - Joyfully Serving Him in Lesotho, Africa
Ashley and Tracey both previous missionaries, met in Botswana, Africa and were married in Tracey's home country of Zimbabwe on April 30, 2005. After moving back to Houston, Texas, where Ashley was born and raised, in July 2006, God blessed them with three beautiful children. Esther is twelve, Joseph is eight, and Hannah is seven. While in Houston, they fellowshipped and served at The Crossing Church of the Nazarene.
The Hord family has been serving in the country of Lesotho, located in the southern African region, since March 2016. Their assignment is in children’s ministry, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ along with discipleship through Good News Clubs in public and private schools as well as local villages. The gospel has been shared with more than 3,000 children in the last three years. In 2019 they have started the Reach 4 Life program with high school students, where more than 1,000 students are being presented with the Word of God each week. Working with local pastors, they have assisted in church development through Children’s ministry training. They have also helped begin an elementary school, Cornerstone Nazarene Primary School, which started out with 6 students in 2017 and has grown to 58 students now in 2019.
Please pray for:
-God to bless the people with whom we will be serving.
-God to use us to further His kingdom in Lesotho.
-More helpers to grow the ministry in the schools.
Going Where the Church is Not Yet
Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
