Mission Trip to Honduras

In Summer 2013, my family (Jason, Jessica and I) will be traveling in a team of 13 from our church to work with the Manuelito Project in Honduras. We feel very blessed to have this opportunity! 

50% of the population of Honduras is under the age of 18.  53% of the population live below the poverty level, and thousands of children are homeless. Many are orphaned or abandoned, living on the city streets.

The streets of Honduras are dangerous places. Many of the street children live in abandoned buildings, cardboard boxes, old cars. Many are drug addicts, are abused, are murdered.

The Manuelito Project was founded by Pastor Jorge - he was once homeless himself. Pastor Jorge gives a home to approximately 40 of these children. They are given a loving place to live and an education so they can eventually join society with a positive role, instead of a desperate one.

We will be joining them for one week, ready to serve in whatever way God is calling us. Our church is generously donating 50% of the cost of the trip, and we are raising the rest.
