Fifteen adults from Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Indianapolis traveled to our Honduras mission in the beginning of February. Here is what they did:

  • painted the interior and exterior of Hogar Sol, a children’s home with 11 kids

  • constructed a guard house for the Vistors’ park

  • did an extensive home makeover (which included new bedding, towels, pots & pans, dishes, cups, silverware, laundry baskets, bathroom mirrors, shower curtains, shelving units, curtains, appliances and more)

  • paid for re-tiling of kitchen counters and left extra money for re-tiling of shower floors

  • Took 35 bags of food staples to needy families and elderly single people at a very poor parish in nearby city of Morocelí

  • Provided new backpacks for 150 children at Nuevo Paraiso, another 30 children of employees, and 10 gate guards

  • Hosted parties for the children of Pedro Atala and Nuevo Paraíso

  • Brought Santiago boys to our dining hall for chicken dinner and fellowship; afterward Daniel Matus, a grown child of SAN and current university student, gave the boys a talk about working hard and following their dreams
