Our adult mission team will return to Honduras from Wednesday, October 21, through Thursday, October 29.  Help us to serve others and seek their good by sharing God's love.  The men will work alongside Honduran men, building a house for a local family.  Women will host Vacation Bible School for the children, telling Bible stories to children who have not heard of Jonah or Nicodemus, and they will also interact with the children on craft activities and music.  There will be Bible studies for the Honduran women.  Let's make the world a better place and uncover the real human value in women and children.
