Kok Bin Ong and Guadalupe Mayo on campus this fall
Kok Bin Ong and his wife Esther are the 2014 recipients of the Hogan-Cate Asian Missions grant. They come from the Church of Christ in Seremban, Malaysia where he has preached since 1988. They come with a wealth of ministry experience and are highly respected as great servants of God. They have three grown children. This sabbatical will give him an opportunity to “recharge his batteries” in a context where he can enjoy fellowship, have access to a great library, audit several classes and do some writing.
Guadalupe Mayo is the recipient of the 2014 Latin American Missions grant. He has a degree in Industrial Psychology and is a 2006 graduate of Baxter Institute in Honduras. He has been the director of the education program at the Kennedy Church of Christ in Tegucigalpa since 2005 and Director of Practical Ministry and Student Life at Baxter Institute since 2007. Lenin Munguia, a recent graduate of HST, says “he works tirelessly on behalf of the cause of Christ.” He is here to see what it would take to start a counseling program to address the spiritual and emotional needs of brothers and sisters in his community; to gain new perspectives for his ministry; and be an advocate for Latin American missions. His wife, Patti, is in the last year of medical school, and could not join him. They have a 2-year old son, Isai.
