Honduras Outreach 2023
“Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can” John Wesley
Again, I am returning to Honduras. We are traveling on June 17, 2023. Many know, because of my neck injury I was unable to go last June with the team. However, I had already purchased medical supplies and medications with the money given to me by my church family and friends.
In April, we had packed and shipped them and other, VBS and construction supplies. Two team members trucked the boxes to New Orleans port and they were put on a ship to Honduras. (It takes about 6-8 weeks for them to be transported and unloaded.). They were there when the team arrived.
The money given to me after shipment,
I purchased last minute request and a team member took them in a piece of luggage. Also, money to buy food for the very poor. Unfortunately, if you made your check out to the church, because of privacy of church members, I was not given the name or the amount of those that were so gracious to support our ministry. That was the reason you did not get a thank you note nor receipts, as you have in the past, on what I purchased with your generous donation.
Saturday, we had a team meeting, and we decided to again purchase early,
pack and again ship before the team goes. This has worked well the last two years. This method is easier than having to deal with each of the team having so many pieces of luggage to be responsible, and a chance it might not get there. We will be shipping the last of March or early April.
A list of most needed items is included. As in the past I will be happy to purchase for you, and send you a receipt. In order to do this, please make your check out to me.
My heart is full of gratitude and just a big Thank You for you support.
