Jorge Espinal is a former missionary who served the Cause of Christ many years in Honduras. Jorge is in great need at this time and a touch from those who love him would be a wonderful testimony to the grace that God has shown us in Christ.

Thank you for visiting this site. My name is Paul Whitmore. I’m writing on behalf of Jorge Espinal, a former missionary with World Reach and friend who served many years in Honduras. First and foremost, let me thank you for your prayers and for the support that you provided in years past for the Espinal family. We praise God for your faithful partnership. God used Jorge in significant ways for the Cause of Christ, including helping start the World Reach Mobile Bible Institute.

Though no longer with World Reach, Jorge is a brother in Christ who now finds himself with a tremendous medical challenge. Jorge went through a major surgery this past November, 2009 to remove a tumor that was wrapped around the pancreas. Without insurance and very little financial resources, through the generosity of churches in Honduras and donated medicines the Lord provided for his immediate medical needs.

After recovering somewhat from his surgery, Jorge received unexpected news after follow-up testing. He was told that he has nodules in his liver and therefore he must go through 6 cycles of chemotherapy treatment. Each cycle has two treatments and the cycles are about two to three weeks apart. He has completed the first cycle and we praise God that financial resources were provided for this first cycle treatment. However, the reality is that our dear brother lacks the resources for the remaining treatments.

This brings me to our appeal. Jorge is in great need at this time and a touch from those who love him would be a wonderful testimony to the grace that God has poured on each of us through Christ. Please pray for Jorge Espinal and if God lays it on your heart, would you prayerfully consider helping make the remaining treatment cycles possible? The total cost for the five remaining cycles of treatment is about $6,700 or about $1,340 per cycle.  I know that in total this is a large amount; however, any donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.  Jorge's daughter, Linda, who is curently working in the U.S. will receive the funds on Jorge's behalf and transfer them to Honduras for help with Jorge's medical treatment.

Thanks again for your expressions of partnership over the years in the Cause of Christ and your love for our brother Jorge.
