We are planning to send another shipment from the US to Honduras in the month of June. We need a lot of school materials right now because, even though we cannot meet in-person right now, the government says they will open classes in a few months. We are are providing all the school materials for the students at home to do their work right now and will need much more once the classes are open again.
Here are some things we will need: spiral notebooks, pencils, erasers, glue, crayons, pens, sharpeners, folders, notebook paper, colored pencils, scissors (for little kids as well as some for older ones), construction paper, etc.
Also, we are getting ready to finish the lodge in the next few months and with our new church so involved in discipleship groups and with plans for camps coming up as well, we are going to need to get it ready by early August. We need the bedding for all 45 beds. We need 45 sets of twin sheets, 45 pillows, 45 light blankets, about 90 towels, and some kitchen pans, plates, cups, etc. John Turner is going to check into getting us “beds in a box” at a good price since they are thin and yet comfortable. Pray for him to find a deal for those mattresses.
As always, I need used clothes and shoes for my 24 kids and we are so thankful for anything you can get from your hand-me-downs in your homes. We have girls sizes: 4, 7, 9, 11, 13, women’s size 1, 3, 7 and 8. For boys we will need sizes: 3, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, men’s small and medium. We can also use any soccer cleats you may have as well.
Thank you for your generosity and we are so grateful for anything you can do to help us collect the needed items. You can use Amazon to order and send to Destino del Reino, 1494 Wrightsboro Road, Augusta, GA, or if you are in the Augusta area you can take any items to Turner Transport at that same address. If you can’t help collect things, please pray that others will be able to give. Thanks for your prayers.
I will send another update more about the ministry in the next few weeks and update you on our new church and school activities, etc. Remember that you cannot hit “reply” to this email, but you may write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Love to all of you,
In His grace,
