"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed, but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.” James 2:14-18

BACK 2 SCHOOL.... 2018!!!

A new year begins and with it comes a moment of reflection on the year that has passed but, and maybe more importantly, a new hope for the year ahead. After nearly 11 years of living in Tegucigalpa and almost 19 years of serving in Honduras, one thing has become crystal clear...... education is an important part (maybe the most important?) of children living in extreme poverty realizing the hopes and dreams they have. Smiles like what you see above are the norm when these children receive the necessary tools and supplies to fully engage in their own education. Our experience has shown us that education is vital in a child's ability to influence their own future, to break the cycle of generational poverty that exists here in Honduras, and realize the hopes and dreams that each new year can bring. 

In 2017 we assisted almost 750 (a record high) students from kindergarten to university all because you cared enough to help.  Well, it is that time of year again (kids start classes in February) and we again hope you will partner with us. We need your help to continue this life changing assistance for as many children as possible! The students and their parents are beginning to call and we will soon be receiving hundreds of school supply lists. The ladies at the Mi Esperanza sewing maquila are already making uniforms...... it's an exciting time here in Tegucigalpa.

Help us fill each one and turn no one away! 750 is a lot...but there is always more to do. If you are able, please help. Simply click below, follow the links to donate to the "work fund" (or mail donations to the address there) and together we can make a difference one child, one family, one community at a time!
