Remember Hurricane Mitch? In 1998, following this dreadful
hurricane, much of the infrastructure of Honduras was
destroyed, leaving thousands homeless, jobless &
our board of directors, assisting other mission groups,
were appalled by the destruction, devastation &
poverty left in the wake of that hurricane. We felt God's
calling to go a step further to help improve the lives of
these dear people. Hence, in 2002, a mission house was
built in the village of Bonitillo, enabling us to take
down volunteer groups & work in the surrounding
villages. The love and gratitude of the Hondurans has been
a blessing to us.
the Lord, Thanks to many willing workers & donations,
God has enabled us to build and operate a school in
are proud of "Escuela Privada Neuvo Horizonte"
which opened in February of 2007. We started with 2 grades
and have increased yearly to include kindergarten to Grade
6. We have a Honduran staff of 13 & approximately 225
students annually. We pray we are helping to make a
difference in the huge illiteracy problem in Honduras.
Our school is funded by our Canadian sponsorship program,
which is $35.00 a month, this helps cover the costs of
teachers and supply the children with uniforms, shoes, all
their books and materials for the year.
We are excited to carry on the Lord's work and educate
these precious children at the same time. This school has
opened doors to us that we would have never dreamed about.
We continue to use our school bus to bring children from
other villages and we also updated our playground with
some new additions and paint. Many hours of fun for all.

If you are thinking a year ahead, sow a seed. If you
are thinking ten years ahead, plant a tree. If you are
thinking one hundred years ahead, educate the people. By
sowing once, you will harvest once. By planting a tree,
you will harvest tenfold. By educating the people, you
will harvest one hundred fold.
