Fall Newsletter 2018

Merry Christmas! As we enter into this time of giving, we need to especially thank our monthly donors. We couldn’t do all that we do without your continued support. With your help we are able to run our weekly mentor programs to spread the love, joy and wisdom of God to the least of those in our world.

Secondly, thank you to all who came out on that rainy Saturday in October for our biggest fundraiser of the year! It was perfect weather for a mud run and the Rock Run Raiser event was able to contribute $1700 towards our ministry. Thanks so much Heidi Mongeau and Rock Church for your support in helping our mission: Providing hope to the future of Honduras.

Speaking of our mission, we wanted to take the time to share with you how your contributions have blessed so many in Honduras these past couple months.

During the months of October and November, Heart4Honduras has carried out many activities to shape the future of the youth and children of Honduras. Check all our activities:

Devotionals in Hogar Senderos de Amor. Every Sunday of the week we carry out different activities with the children of Senderos de Amor orphanage, strengthening their physical abilities and supporting the mental and spiritual growth of each one of them. During our visits to Senderos de Amor we perform devotionals with them and share a small snack.

Scholarship program. During the last few months we have worked on a program to support young people in homes so that they can have more opportunities to work in the future. There are two young people who are in English classes.

602DFE7C-DAC7-4E2A-9EF5-4EDDA157F6D5

Name: Camilo José Alberto

Age: 16 years

Motivation

Camilo’s motivation is to learn English in order to have more opportunities and get a job when he turns 18 years old. He also wants to learn English to speak with “Los Gringos”.

366CF5AF-9B7F-4428-A554-B5F33FD7A403

Name: Ivan Enrique Sarmiento.

Age: 19 years.

Motivation

Ivan has lived for many years in Senderos, being of legal age, Ivan had to leave Senderos de Amor, now he is a volunteer for Heart4Honduras. Ivan expressed that he would like to learn English in order to have more employment opportunities and thus be able to rent an apartment and study at the university, he also expressed that he would love to talk with his friends in United States.

Student motivation program. Currently, many young people do not want to continue studying, which causes them to have fewer employment opportunities and in case they get to have a job, they receive a very low salary to pay their expenses. Therefore Heart4Honduras has this student motivation program in which young people will become aware of the reasons why they should continue studying, every month we try to go to a different place, our last workshop was at the Compassion Center in Rio Blanco, San Pedro Sula.

Just a few more blessings… A couple of weekends ago, to celebrate thanksgiving, we surprised Alex’s family with groceries for his family, we celebrated birthdays with cake for two of our boys’ at Senderos and this weekend we helped another local organization, Identity Mission, at their annual teen retreat.

Thank you very much for your help and collaboration, each of your donations is being used in the best way to promote the development of the future of Honduras.

Blessings! And Merry Christmas with love from Honduras,

– Ernesto Sorto, Program Director
