Prepare, count, pack, repeat…Jan. 2017

Getting ready for a trip requires months of preparation, gathering and planning! Many hands help to put the final touches on the trip on PACKING NIGHT!! For this trip, donated items include: school supplies donated by our RELIGIOUS EDUCATION program, blankets made by our PARISH SCHOOL, SOCKS donated by a bible study group and CRHP Team #3 women, BOOKS donated by the WEIST family, ROSARIES created and donated by the LEBLANC family,  holy items donated by the DAY family, jeans and sweatshirts donated by the NICHOLS family, and numerous backpacks donated by the Honduras Committee to name a few!!  Additionally, activities this week will include: a carnival, exchange of pen pal letters, a Quinceanera celebration, recreational activities in each home, serving at a homeless shelter/food kitchen and a visit with UNBOUND to local sponsored families homes.

The team will travel Jan. 7-14 and includes the following parishioners: Jill Andersen, Ann Ekis, Jill Ellena, Jenny Fain, Mary Fain, Mallory Hickory, Chris Kopecky, Dani de Leon, Fr. Nathan Miller,  and Mike Pollock.  Please pray for the residents of each home in Honduras as well as those we seek to serve in the community as well as for our team!

Most Loving God,
Shine your light down on the people in Honduras and let them always feel the warmth of Your love. While they may be lacking in material things, we ask that You bless them with the joy and peace that only You can provide. Guide our thoughts, words and actions as we work together on this mission project so it is Your work and Your purpose we strive to accomplish. May our hearts forever be changed as we witness Your presence and love and may we be inspired by the faith of those we seek to serve in Honduras. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
