Week I (Landscaping/Construction) – July 15-21
Week II (Medical and Dental) – July 22-30
For ten years (and in some ways longer than that), St. John’s has had a missionary presence in Honduras. Over that time, our parish has developed a close friendship with Espiritu Santo, the Episcopal parish in Tela with whom we partner each year. As with all missionary endeavors, the relationship is reciprocal—we consistently receive as much (probably more) than we give. After two years of scaled-back efforts, St. John’s is thrilled that we can resume both annual trips to Honduras.
This July, we will take two groups to Honduras. The first focuses on construction and landscaping. Open to participants ages 16 and over, this trip allows people from St. John’s to work alongside people from Espiritu Santo, to work on the church facilities and grounds. The second, which is open to participants 19 and older, is a medical trip, which combines the expertise of medical professionals with the willingness of non-medical participants in order to provide important care to the residents of Tela and the surrounding area.
If you have any questions, please contact the Rev. Robert Wisnewski (firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-262-1937).
Espiritu Santo’s (Holy Spirit’s) was built with help from St. John’s and other mission teams, along with funds from a gererous United Thank Offering (UTO) Grant from the Episcopal Church Women (ECW).
