Christmas Party at Cerro de Hula

Image
It all started over breakfast.   Santito, who cleans our five story building, told me she does like not Christmas.  When I asked her why, she explained that she lost her mother when she was thirteen. After that her father showed little interest in her.  Her childhood was without Christmas and hard. It was a time that made her sad. Knowing that Our Lord always loves a party , I asked if she would like to throw one in celebration of Christmas for herkids and the community.   With a smile, she said, "Yes."

This is what happened.

Your support has allowed the following projects to go forward in 2016.  
Thank you.

1. Good Shepherd Church, Santa Maria, El Paraíso. In July of this year we consecrated the church as a culmination of a ten year mission project. For more information, click here.

3. Zamorano Diocesan Retreat Center, Zamorano, District of Francisco Morazàn.  Last year we finished the schematic master design for the retreat center.  But because the funds are currently limited, we decided to build the cafeteria first.   We will be starting the foundations shortly.


4. St. John's Bilingual School, Siguatepeque, Comayagua.

There is no air conditioning.  The roof is insulated and large windows open to the cool breezes outside.   



5. Taffy Hospice, Corinto, Puerto Cortes. This hospice is being redesigned …
