Sharing the Gospel on the street
To go to the lost, share the good news of the grace of God through Jesus our Savior, and equip believers in all circumstances to passionately serve the Lord.
To eliminate barriers of opportunity by helping to train, equip and empower the marginalized residents on the island of Roatan develop their local resources.
We attempt to follow Jesus’ examples of “caring for the least of these” by showing and demonstrating love and respect with a servant’s heart. We attempt to demonstrate His values by loving everyone, but with extra effort given for the marginalized.
- Love our neighbor as ourselves.
- Wisely use our finances and individual gifts to help advance the Kingdom of God.
- Help provide for the welfare of marginalized people by providing jobs.
- Teach as Jesus taught with respect to family values.
- Evangelize the lost and make disciples who make disciples.
Bill and Vickie Greer have had a vision for the nations for many years and have served on a number of short-term mission trips. “Our vision for IFM on Roatan began in 2017 when we went to the island by invitation of friends to observe the beauty of the land and the people,” Bill says. It wasn’t long before they met Dave Granada, pastor of Capilla Punta Caliente, who had been faithfully laboring among the impoverished people on the eastern end of the island.
Bill and Vickie immediately sensed a calling from God to provide a safe, clean place for the Granada family to live, and the need to build a separate mission house and kitchen to accommodate short-term trips from the United States. This mission house could serve as the base for visiting missions teams to work alongside local churches and ministries and serve in the ways God had laid on their heart to help the people of Roatan.
Land was purchased in Politilly Bight and a water cistern was constructed in 2019.
The first building on IFM’s mission campus, called Misión de Aqua Viva, began with the construction of the single-family home in December 2020, The mission team’s/admin house is expected to be started later in the the year and completed by late 2021.
IFM is a support organization that partners with local churches & ministries in their calling to provide physical and spiritual food to the impoverished areas on Roatan.
In December 2020, IFM received its 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit tax exempt status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.
