Sadly I must advise that our ECOHS sponsored mission team to Honduras had to cancel our trip. Political unrest with protests and road blockages across much of the country would have made it difficult for us to complete our work. Amanda Scott, volunteer coordinator for LAMB in Honduras, advised us that we should not travel there during our scheduled week starting June 22nd. We will be working with Amanda to determine some other opportunities for some of our members to travel to Honduras later this year. Right now, LAMB is operating on a week by week basis with mission groups as they monitor the situation.
Several of our parishioners were able to travel down to Honduras on June 14th as part of the other Atlanta team. They were able to interact with an Alonzo Movement group in Flor del Campo, spend Sunday at the Children’s Home and work two days there on projects. They also went to the Valley of the Angels for a mid-week break. However, because of the protests, they stayed at the Casa LAMB residence house for the last two days before flying home to Atlanta. Three of our youth had planned to stay and join us for the second week, but that was cancelled because of the situation and all came home safely on June 22nd.
Thanks to all who contributed clothing, toys, over the counter meds and hand made blankets for the trip. Many of these did make it to Honduras and were greatly appreciated by the children and staff of LAMB. The remaining items will go down on future trips as we get the opportunity to take them.
