Honduras III

The time for preparation is upon us once again.  I've had a very late start this year, but I am less stressed about this year's trip to Honduras.  We have a great group going and it is very growing and evolving.  I am providing a link to the letter describing events this year:  Hope for Honduras 2013 Letter.

I have also summarized the major activities at the end of this post.  I hope you will consider becoming or remaining involved in this trip in the following ways:
1.  Prayer is always first.  Pray for those going to Honduras, those already working in Honduras and those who will be receiving assistance.
2.  Supply Donations are always needed.  If you see an activity that you would like to support with a physical donation, please contact me.  Any and everything will be accepted and given to the people we work with.  In the past, we have given shoes, clothes, medical supplies, bubbles, coloring books, soccer balls, silly string, super balls, balloons (they LOVE balloons and balloon animals)... the list goes on and on.
3.  Monetary Donations are still needed.  Please consider supporting me financially for the journey.  All funds are 100% tax deductible.  Details on this can also be found in the letter.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and keeping up with the work that we do.

"But Jesus looked at them and said to them, 'With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'"- Matthew 19:26

2013 Activity Summary

VBS: Last year, this activity was highly successful and extremely fun.  The entire event is conducted in Spanish.  It included crafts, skits, puppet shows, snacks and fun.  We made new friends and provided an opening for children to learn a few action packed Bible stories. 
Boys’ Home Project:  If you visit my Boys’ Home (30.06.12) post, you will read of an earth shattering experience. We hope to spruce up the living conditions by providing mattresses, paint and athletic surfacing on their existing concrete soccer courtyard.
Build a church/ Repair a church: A local missionary from South America visits the mountains to preach to individuals in tents and temporary structures.  We are going to pool our energy, resources and various talents to build a two-story church to support this work.  Also, the same minister’s home church suffers from heaving in the foundation.  We intend to repair the foundation and provide a new floor. Both projects are going to be quite interesting.

City Dump:  People live in the city dump.  They collect scraps and re-sell/recycle them and/or build shelters and beds.  We will provide food for them.  We will also worship with them.  I must say that this is one of the most beautiful services I have attended in my life.  In the midst of the dump, you can see people that have a sincere love for God and the blessing he has given them.
