Honduras Mission

Charles & Judy Echols (members of St. Mark's), along with a team of 14 or so, take yearly trips toclinic site in 2015 Iglesia San Marcos in Honduras.  This year's trip was October 21-29, 2016.  They took with them medicines, prescription eye glasses, sun glasses, readers, water filters, toothbrushes, Bibles, Sunday School supplies and crayons and coloring books to occupy the children while they waited to be seen or get their prescriptions.

 

This team (which comes from several churches in different parts of the US) is the only medical help they receive.  In addition, each year the team addresses maintenance and construction expenses that become evident in setting up the clinics.  This year, electrical outlets and bathrooms are being upgraded and screens are being added to windows (remember zika virus).  Fans in the clinic building are also being added and a children's swing set in the church playground is being repaired.

There is also a crayon ministry that helps occupy the hundreds of children who come to the clinic with their parents while they wait.  The kids eagerly color, sharing their crayons while srawled over benches, pews, stairs and the floor.

 

Additional pictures of our most recent mission trip are found in the Photo Gallery.

 

Pray for safety of the team and the success of this work of mercy.
