I thought it might be fun to kick off our 2016 mission trip by taking all of you through our preparations. Our mission team needs everyone's help in many ways. We need your prayers now and during our trip. We also need your help in collecting various items that we will sort and distribute to the poorest families of Nueva Capital. We will be sure to post photos of our missioners as they distribute the items to these families. We want all of you to take the mission journey with us!
Each week we will be asking for specific items that we need. Please feel free to bring other items on the list, even if they are not the focus item.
This week we will collect regular sized bars of soap
and large bottles of shampoo.
Please check the blog daily as I will update it with what we are doing to get ready for the trip. I hope you will become a follower of our blog so you can post comments, especially while the team is in Honduras.
Sunday, February 17, the mission team and parents had a final meeting to go over the information everyone needs to take part in the mission trip. Missioners were even given a specific list of items to pack for themselves so we will have plenty of space in the black duffle bags for your donated items. Every missioner also carries a second black duffle bag filled with items for the families in Honduras.
Francis Seivert has been in Honduras for almost three weeks now. Both he and Marta are busy getting quotes for the items we'll need to build the homes and bunk beds. They also need to line up our buses and drivers, make sure we have water to drink and bathe, plan the meals, and much more. Lots of preliminary work has to be done to ensure a successful mission trip.
Thanks for joining us on this journey. I look forward to sharing with you as we put our faith into action!
