This is a quick video that a short-term missions group from Seacoast Church in South Carolina made after their time with us. It shows our English classes, library, and other ways that we reach out to these kids.
Thanks Christine for your hard work and great attitude! We love having you around and we hope your heart gets stuck in Honduras.
This month we are pouring our energy into building a wall around Instituto El Rey. That's the secondary school where Jason and I (Sarah) taught the first year and a half we lived in Honduras. Due to a recent security incident there, it is the right time to make the place more secure.
The parents are so committed to Instituto El Rey and the education provided that they are volunteering a day of work per student to help us build. Still though, this project requires a lot of finances. If you believe in the vision of the school like we do, and like the parents of its students, please consider donating towards this wall. You can go to our Give Page and just add a note to your check or paypal donation that it's for the wall. Thanks for your support!
I wanted to update everyone on the progress we've been making on our house for volunteers and groups. This building has come up so fast compared to our previous houses. A lot of that is the fact that all our workers are just focusing on that one project instead of several at once.
When we're finished with this it will have two dorm rooms that will each sleep eight people, to accommodate groups that come to help us. On the other side of the house we'll have two rooms to house volunteers.
We have the walls almost all the way up and the fill dirt in, but after this photo we are pausing this project for awhile and working on the "Great Wall of Rio Viejo." We'll fill you in on that soon...
