Missionary of the Month

February’s Missionary of the Month

Dagoberto and Dilia Zelaya

Dagoberto and Dilia Zelaya are our Missionaries of the Month for February.  They are Associate Missionaries appointed by IM in partnership with the First Baptist Church of Marshalltown, Iowa.  They are responsible for developing and supervising the Ministries of Faith and New Life in Azacualpa, Honduras.  This ministry is home to sixteen children, providing for all their basic needs – food, education, health, and spiritual. Besides this ministry, the Zelayas have also launched the Escuela Cristiana Vida Nueva (Christian School of New Life), a bilingual school that includes a classroom for students with special needs.  They also have a feeding program that provides a meal five days a week to approximately 50 children in need, and a soccer program dedicated to teenagers from the community.
