Hola amigos,

Thursday, February 26, we heard from Kelly Beers, reporting for the NY/HELP mission group. She says the trip went really really well. They accomplished a lot; all the doctors kept really busy and the time in Honduras was a success. The group is now taking a day of vacation before heading back to the states this weekend.

More will be reported after they return and we have a 'wrap-up" meeting.

Thanks for your prayers and support.

February 2009 NY/HELP Mission Trip

This morning (Monday, February 16, 2009) 14 volunteers left for Honduras for a two-week mission trip. They have an ambitious schedule they hope to work on while there. That includes: 1- working on the construction of the 5th (and last) class for the middle school, which will serve as laboratories and painting and packaging of management and library; 2- supporting construction of 4 roofs, 10 Lorena stoves, 6 latrines and 5 floors in four different communities; 3- The doctors may run a mobile clinic in one of two outlying communities while others in the group do other work in that community. There will also be the traditional soccer tournament in one of the communities.
