Meet Our 2018 Families

 Deisy Avila is the mother for family #1. She and her family are living in a borrowed house at the moment. She has a total of 8 children, but only 3 are still living at home with her. She works at Santa Teresa School as a cook. The school pays her by giving her a little food and money.

outside walls to keep out the drafts

Deisy and two of her children pose in the back of the pickup.
They were all extremely excited to hear
they would be receiving a new home in March
from Gehlen Catholic Mission Honduras.


Family 2 is made up of 5 children, a father, and a mother.
Aleida Maria Betanco is the mother. The father
works as a watchman, as does their son. One of their daughters
is at college. Pictured above, you see Aleida and
the 3 children who live at home.

which they are renting

Outside the door you can see the
laundry piled on the stone that
Aleida uses for her washboard to do
the family's laundry.

We will build home 3 for a single mother
named Adelina Mendoza. She works as a
cleaning lady and has 2 children.
Her brother owns this brick house
but allows Adelina and her 2 children
to live with him.

One of the girls stands in front of the
laundry hanging inside the house.

2 children.
