Luanne Gasparek Mission to Honduras - Feb. 2020
While on a Mission trip to Honduras, I was able to help distribute the socks and underwear that the wonderful people (especially the kids) of our tri-parish donated. The Honduran kids were so exited and thankful! One picture shows a young man smelling his new socks, his look of joy was truly priceless! It really reinforced how little they have and how much your donations meant to them.
The mission team spent the mornings painting one of the children's dorms and building a cinder block wall around the elementary school area. The afternoons were spent with the kids doing crafts, playing games, and singing songs.
Once again, thank you for your generous donations whether it was socks, underwear, soap, shampoo, suitcases, religious items or money, they were greatly appreciated! And thank you for all the prayers for safe travel.

'Go Green' Re-usable Shopping Bag Campaign
The amazing women of the CCW&M responded to a request to create reusable shopping bags and as usual they outdid themselves. Combined they made 136 bags that are being distributed in each of the tri-parish churches. They plan to continue their sewing (and crocheting) to make sure they have a sufficient supply when the "snowbirds" return in the spring.
