It is just five weeks until our annual Celebration of Ministry featuring The Roast of Bill Floyd, on November 11.  To secure your seat, we encourage you to register now.  We don’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to share in this experience.  If you have already registered, we thank you and look forward to seeing you!

We have a lot to celebrate and we are looking forward to a night of fun and friendship as we honor our good friend Bill.  He is excited about the evening but a little nervous as you can imagine.  Roasters include Stacey AbramsLarry MinnixPatti GarrettWalter Drake and Jerry Eickhoff.

We are pleased to announce that Reverend Don Harp, former Senior Pastor of Peachtree Road UMC, will be in attendance.  He will be honoring our nation’s veterans for their service in his own special way.  You won’t want to miss it!

While the evening promises to be a lot of fun, with many laughs, great music and outstanding silent auction items, it is also a time to remember that this night is about the people of Honduras and Nicaragua.  This is your opportunity to honor Bill, remember our nation and celebrate our shared compassion for those who are often forgotten. 63% of the people in Honduras and Nicaragua live on less than a dollar a day and over 30% of Hondurans have no access to health care.   The proceeds from this night will benefit those trapped in poverty and illness. It will be a great night for a great cause!  If you have not already purchased your ticket, you can now by clicking here.

Also in attendance this year will be Dr. German Jimenez.  Dr. German has served the people of Honduras for over two decades.   He is a selfless servant whose heart radiates love and compassion for the people of Honduras.  He is excited about HOI’s recent expansion and vision for the future.  So, he is setting aside his aversion to airplanes and will be joining us that week.

Dr. German will be accompanied by Jose Mondragon, Director of Operations in Honduras, and Camila Reina, our Central American liaison.

There are several ways you can have an impact this night:

  • You, and members of your mission team, can purchase tickets for the event.  Your ticket purchase goes towards HOI’s mission operations and furthers your impact in the Agalta Valley and other parts of Central America.
  • You, or your company, can become a table sponsor, or a co-table sponsor.  Please feel to call HOI’s office to learn more about this outstanding opportunity.  Thank you, to those of you who have committed and those who are still planning to commit at this level.
  • You can become a “Friend of Bill” with a $1,000 tax deductible donation to HOI. We will make sure your name is listed in the program and if you are able to attend, we will save you two great seats.
  • Whether you are able or unable to attend, we welcome items for the silent auction.  Popular items, for tax deduction, include a week at a vacation home, airline passes, restaurant gift certificates, or new unopened electronic items.   If you have an item to donate, or want to suggest one, please give Dave or Caitlin a call at 404-327-5770.

Most of all, Dr. German, Bill, Jerry and all of us would love to see you there.  There are still tickets available, but we don’t want you to miss the deadline.
