Iain and Liz

Honduras

Central America

 
     
Iain and Liz McKenzie were sent out from the King's Fellowship in Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, and have been missionaries to Honduras since 2004.  They lived in the small very rural village of Balfate on the North Coast of Honduras.  Iain and Liz are currently in transition, having recently returned to Scotland.

Whilst in Honduras, Iain and Liz worked in partnership with the Cornerstone Foundation, which has built and developed a charitable hospital, Hospital Loma de Luz.  As part of the call, Iain and Liz had a vision for a new purpose-built Children's Centre.  This became a reality when construction of the new Centre was completed in June 2008.  The Centre facilitates:
  • Looking after children who need ongoing medical care at the Hospital but do not need to be in-patients, and also children whose parents need to be hospitalised.
  • Offering places to children from even more remote areas in the mountains and islands where there are no schools.
  • Responding to other family needs and family breakdowns, offering places of safety, and always seeking to work towards family reconciliation.
The Centre can house 24 children, and runs pretty close to capacity most of the time.  The McKenzies feel blessed and privileged to have been called by God to do this work.

Although they have now returned to Scotland, the work continues in Honduras, and Iain and Liz have moved from a parenting role to a grandparenting role, supporting the work relationally and financially, and making frequent visits in this transition phase.
