Reliance church recently studied an Acts series on missions. We believe in pouring into our Jerusalem and continue with our homeless ministry, and pouring into the lives in St Petersburg, Florida, but we also believe in going out, even to ends of the earth and helping where we can. (Acts 1:8) This past Sunday, we got to meet with the founder of Finding Hope Honduras and share her vision with her. Katlyn has been in the states raising support for a few weeks. It was great to see first hand what we would be doing and listen to her stories. We will be working in El Porvenir, Honduras and it's about 3 hours from where we will fly in. It is a very rural area.
If you would like to give for this cause, " Raise the Roof Honduras" Here is a link for you to give, it's our church give site, but about middle of the page it says apply my gift to- there is a drop down box that says missions, or you can write it in the memo. We can also offer you a charitable donation receipt for tax purposes as well.
Katlyn's vision was to build a Women's center there or community center for the women and children. There will be a beading room, a sewing room, a nursery/daycare/preschool area and a women's shelter. Haley Krieg is co-founder and shares this vision and mission. This is the website if you would like to read more about the mission there. http://findinghopehonduras.org/#/ They are in the process of building the shelter/community center but lack a roof and that is where we will come in. We need to raise $2500.00 for the roof. On June 13th, we will have a Garage Sale at 2750 5th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL 33713 also to raise money for this cause. It is not too late to donate !!! We have volunteers to come and get any stuff donated.
Most important we desire prayers, prayer for safe journey, for a mission heart, for health and for our hearts to be in a place of worship and fellowship with God so that we can touch some lives there in El Porvenir.
