July 22 – 29, 2019, San Pedro Sula, Honduras
The church’s longest running mission continues to flourish in this country with one of the poorest economies in Central America.
Over the past quarter of a century, our mission teams have built many meaningful relationships with our friends at Our Little Roses Home for Girls in the city of San Pedro Sula. An intergenerational trip to Our Little Roses Home for Girls, a refuge for girls aged 9 months to 20, whose families cannot care for them. We plan and lead a “summer camp” for the girls, which can include games, sports, arts and crafts, bible school, cooking, science experiments, field trips to pools, the beach, the movies, etc. We learn about Honduran culture. We develop relationships with the girls at Our Little Roses. We worship with them. We learn about ourselves. Most importantly, we provide lots of needed LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, which touches the lives of these girls as well as ours!
The Honduras Mission is open to adults of all ages or youth (current 8th through 12th graders) who are accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. This is a great opportunity for a parent/teen experience! The projected cost for the trip per person is $1,400. The deadline for sign up and deposit is March 15, 2019. For details and sign up, please contact trip leaders David Wade (firstname.lastname@example.org), Stacey Branch (email@example.com) or Robin Jager (firstname.lastname@example.org). There is a flyer with trip information available here.
Take a quiet moment to watch and reflect on the words of Frances, a graduate of Our Little Roses, her 11 minute sermon to Christ Church at the end of February 2017 is below. She beautifully and powerfully articulates the importance of missions to OLR and how they have impacted her life. The best message is toward the end…so please listen all the way through.
