John and Sharron Harvey
Equipping the Saints
John and Sharon lead ASELSI, Equipping the Saints International. This is a ministry dedicated to the equipping and training of pastors and leaders in Central America and to providing health care and teaching to families in poverty.
John serves as a teacher and Sharon serves as a nurse. Through a permanent Bible training center and a mobile educational classroom, they provide the only centralized, non-denominational Bible training in their region. One hundred seventy students attend classes in either a two or three year program. John’s vision is to impart sound, Biblical principles that will enable these men and women to lead in understanding the love of God.
Sharon runs a clinic which serves people who would not otherwise be able to receive care and medicine. The clinic includes examinations, pre and post natal care, eye clinics, health education, a pharmacy stocked by donations from the States, and the Leche (milk) Program, which provides milk, formula, cereal, vitamins, and vegetables from our garden to undernourished children and pregnant or nursing mothers. We continue to see high-risk infants and children who may have died gain weight and begin to thrive.
