Opportunities from His Hands for Honduras - We are in our planning stages for our medical brigade trip to Honduras in January and are hoping that some people from your church might like to join us. We need medical and non-medical people to go with us. The cost is $2,200 and includes medicine, flight, hostel, transportation in Honduras, insurance and food. Project Compassion and His Hands for Honduras are partnering together to help about 250 children/adults a day in three different Cristo Centro church communities: one day each in Nueva Florida and Zolano, and two days in Rio Blanco. We are also planning a day of relaxation at the beach on Friday. If you would like to go on the trip, a commitment needs to be made by the end of October. The following will help you to understand how you can do that: Go to projectcompassion.org -> Mission Trips -> 5 Easy Steps for details on these 5 steps: 1. Fill out an Outreach Application, 2. Trip Acceptance Verification, 3. Trip Preparation, 4. Trip Cost, 5. And you’re off!
