Thousand Islands Church - Supported Missionaries
Rick and Ena Ward
Rick and Ena Ward are members at TIBC and serve the winters in Honduras. TIBC is their sending church and supports them through prayer and special projects.
Ena is one of the administrators for Child Sponsorship – Casa Hogar, Honduras. She administers sponsors in Ontario and Western Canada. Child sponsorship enables vulnerable children a loving place to live. A place where they are valued, are shown and taught the love of God, are nourished physically and spiritually, and are provided an education. For more information on Child Sponsorship or to sponsor a child, go to the following link.
Rick and Ena were both raised in Christian homes at opposite ends of Canada. They met in the military and returned to their faith walk when they had children. They have two sons. Moving multiple times within Canada, they made many new church homes and have friends across the provinces. Rick and Ena have both retired after 30 years in the military. They have felt the call to be used for the Lord’s work supporting our Fellowship missionaries already out on the Mission field. They call it “Snowbirds with a purpose!” Fellowship International has appointed them with FAIR, serving in Honduras with Melodie Francis at Casa Hogar. Their work requires competence in the Spanish language to daily interact independently with those around them. They have taken intensive Spanish lessons at the Spanish Institute of Honduras in Siguatepeque and are now linguistically ready to volunteer winters at Casa Hogar helping with maintenance, projects, Mission Trips and whatever needs arise.
