In 1990, South Carolinian Suzy McCall went to Honduras as part of a church planting team. Nine years later, she felt God’s call to begin a ministry to train native Hondurans in Christian mission work.
Nearly two decades later, Suzy McCall is still living and working in Honduras. But the ministry she helped build – the LAMB Institute – now includes two partner organizations: LAMB Honduras, based in the capital of Tegucigalpa and staffed primarily by Hondurans, and LAMB U.S., based in Charleston.
The work of LAMB is multifaceted and unique, as they seek to bring the Gospel of Christ to bear on Honduran people in many walks of life. The Honduran team operate ministries for orphans (God’s Littlest Lambs Children’s Home), young students (God’s Littlest Lambs School), at risk youth (Alonzo Movement), small business owners (Microcredit Program), and victims of human trafficking (New Life Program).
The U.S. team provides support for the work in Honduras by overseeing organizational development, donor relations, and relationships with U.S. partner churches.
According to Board Member Tammy Gottshalk, a current focus is education. “At LAMB,” she said, “we recognize that God changes lives through education and that each child’s educational needs are as different as that child.”
“As a result, we have children in many different types of educational programs – some in traditional schools, some in tech schools, some with special needs in schools that serve them best, such as our children in the school for the blind.”
One student who came to the Children’s Home as a six-year-old is now a 17-year-old University student studying interior design. Gottshalk and her LAMB Institute team members hope to continue their good work in the future, for the sake of the the Gospel and for Honduras’ next generation of Christian leaders.
