Honduras Mission Opportunity
RUMC has partnered with Lunches for Learning, Inc., to “adopt” the Manuel Bonilla Elementary School in the remote mountain community of Las Tablas in southern Honduras.
A trip April 20-27 will build upon our previous trips in 2015 by continuing to strengthen relationships with key local church and community leaders. Our hope is to build a long term relationship with this community and help them lift themselves out of oppressive poverty while developing their spiritual health. Projects will be discussed at our planning meetings.
This is a great opportunity for first-time mission trip participants. A Honduras Mission Team Information Meeting will be held Monday, Dec. 5, at 6:30 p.m. in the dining room . Details: Katherine Simons, firstname.lastname@example.org . At the planning meeting you will see slides of school and facilities, meet the lead team and participate in planning.
