OUR WORK IN HONDURAS

As missionaries, we work on many fronts. Here are just a few:

  1. Children's Homes
    Family Style Homes, Children's Homes, Foster Care
    2
    We are building family homes for long term care of children who have been removed from their families but cannot be adopted or reunified with family. Family style homes allows close relationships, modeling work and family life, and walking in the path of Christ together as a family.
  2. After School Program

    M.O.M. provides a safe place to learn and grow for 70+ children. We provide homework help, nutritious lunches, medical and dental care, and clean water for engaged but disadvantaged students in our community. Most importantly, we provide discipleship and share the Gospel with these children and their families.
  3. Gateway Homes

    Providing homes for abandoned, orphaned and vulnerable babies separated from their families until a more permanent placement can be made in foster homes, adoptive homes, or family reunification.
HOW DO WE HELP THEM?
Mission On The Move started an after school program in 1999 in a small mountain town of Santa Elena. In a country with only about one third of all students continuing past the third grade, we focused on education and used it as a platform for discipleship. This program is thriving today, serving 70 students.
 
Support from our sponsors provides an education, all school fees and supplies, healthy meals, healthcare, and clean water for children in our community. Through this after school program, our teachers are able to share the Love of Christ not only with the children but with their families as well.  

We look at this program as a discipleship program with three goals - to share the Good News of the Gospel, to improve educational outcomes, and to provide better nutrition through hot balanced meals every day.

Allison and I were honored to join this mission in April 2013 and continue to grow with our Honduran staff and the families we serve. Thank you for the opportunity!

In 2016 we started building children's homes for abandoned, orphaned, and vulnerable children and in 2017 we hope to open both our Baby Crisis Center (Casa De Mariposas) and our first family style children's home (Oaks of Righteousness).

We are especially grateful for our partners, supporters and prayer warriors! We couldn't be doing this work without you. Thank you for taking this journey with us!

 
 
"... and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called OAKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor."


Isaiah 61:3

ABOUT US
Allison and Ernie Sizemore serve as missionaries in Honduras. Additionally, Ernie serves as Executive Director of Mission On The Move, providing guidance to the Board and support to our missionaries. They lead a team of Honduran men and women to disciple children in the small mountain village of Santa Elena in central Honduras near Lago de Yojoa, as well as a team of missionaries who are building children's homes to care for abandoned, orphaned and vulnerable children.

We have always felt called to work with children, particularly orphaned, mistreated, and neglected children. After working with Georgia Department of Family and Children's Services for seven years as foster parents, we began to explore our call to do more.

We began to engage more in ministries within our church and ended up serving under a bridge in Augusta with New Hope's Bridge Ministry as FBC began a partnership with them.

Through several years of serving, we began to explore international missions and in the process discovered Mission On The Move, an interdenominational missions agency in Springfield, Georgia. In September 2012 we were commissioned as missionaries to Honduras by our church (First Baptist Church Augusta) and Mission On The Move.

In April 2013 we moved to Honduras to begin our journey. The past few years have been wonderful as we have seen God working in our community and in orphan care in Honduras. We are grateful to have a small part in the work God is doing in Honduras.
WHAT WE DO
OUR HISTORY
We are a family of five serving the Lord and struggling to be obedient through our fear, pride, and ignorance. We pray each day that the Holy Spirit will lead us and guide us, regardless of our desires, goals and directions.

We are both from the Augusta, Georgia metropolitan area. After meeting at a rugby game and dating for more than six years, we were married at FBC Augusta, GA in November 1999 and have since adopted three children - Chase, Maddie and Graham.
