James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

“In April of 2003 my perspective on life was radically changed. I traveled the countryside of Honduras, seeing first-hand the extreme conditions; families living in shacks with dirt floors and no running water, poverty, hunger, disease, sickness, desperation, and hopelessness. My eyes were opened to a simple fact; the majority of people in the world do not live the way I live here in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. I was moved to the core of my being. I felt overwhelmingly blessed to have what I have, but more importantly, I was compelled—obligated to do what I could do to make a difference, here in Honduras.

I couldn’t go back to life as I knew it. I was forever changed, and determined to make a difference. Even if it was just a little change, even if it was just scratching the surface, I knew I had to do something.

We developed a relationship with a Christian man who was, at that time, working with children and youth in a soccer outreach program. We approached him about working with us in a new program that we were proposing—designed to change the lives of the people in a small village in the mountains of Honduras, called Los Pinos. We started out trying to reach the youth in the village through a soccer program.

We purchased a small plot of land and we began building a facility, which would serve as a church, a youth center, and vocational training center. We also have medical clinics at the facility. It took us 4 years to complete the facility, but it is now up-and-running and serving the community.”

Today, we have 4 primary areas of the mission:

  • Community Center
  • School
  • The Dump
  • Orphanage

Our future goals include: building the orphanage, more advanced medical services for families in the village, a sustainable form of commerce that can support the ongoing financial needs of the ministry (we are currently researching a coffee cooperative), and a sustainable clean water program.

I am excited about what the future holds for Honduras. Please consider visiting Honduras with us or supporting this ministry in some capacity.”

Making a difference,
