Summary of 2020
We were not good about updating the blog in 2020, 2021 or 2022.
For that reason, we are adding summaries and will add pics later.

Accomplishments in 2020
The worldwide pandemic disrupted our plans in 2020. We thought it would be the year to be mobile and to reach more people. However, the government of Honduras sanctioned strict restrictions and laws which prohibited us from having direct contact with the people whom we serve in Honduras. It was a difficult year, but God helped us to find creative ways to provide hope.
Some of the highlights from 2020:
Averaged 40 in attendance at Iglesia Senderos de Fe from January 1 to March 16, 2020.
Hosted two training conferences for 53 pastors and church leaders in February.
Worked alongside a pediatric back-to-school team which performed physicals on 246 children at 7 rural elementary schools.
Hosted and worked with an additional 11 volunteers from the USA on a dorm renovation project, tractor repair, physical therapy and other community outreach activities.
Helped 39 local farmers by donating beans, corn, fertilizer, and pesticides.
Donated funds, medicine, supplies, clothing, mosquito nets, mattresses, baby bed, and food to a church, therapy center, health department, a children’s home, and a women’s center.
Continued to provide a refuge for Roy, a gravely ill special needs child with cerebral palsy, and his mom whom we discipled, counseled, and provided personal care items and food.
Grieved with Maritza and helped her with every aspect of the funeral for her 5 ½ year old son, Roy, who passed away on April 23, 2020.
Secured a position for Maritza at a children’s home and helped her return to her home in La Mosquitia, a remote area of Honduras. We are paying a monthly stipend to fund her work.
