Monthly Update: Thank you!
God is so good!
A BIG THANK YOU to all of you who came, gave, & prayed for our first Honduras Team Reunion/Fundraiser. I think that I had my fill of papusas (we had a few leftover)! But, I think that I will be ready to eat some more when I return to
Honduras with the January 2018 team.
I also need to personally thank the team of people that helped with this event: Jane & Leo Neuman, Emily Peterson & family, Jen Nelson, Deb Hannah, The Rice family: Michael, Shelly, & Meghan, Linda Goodno & family, Nancy Lindberg, Lisa Engh, & Kristi Myre! Also thank you to Crossroads Church Cottage Grove campus for providing the venue. The wonderful food we had came from Las Palmas in St. Paul. Pastor Peter & friends from Linaje sent a video for us to watch. It was fun catching up and meeting new people who all have the same passion!
The Silent Auction brought in over $1000 to purchase items needed in the new Senior Center.
The donations for the library brought in $500!
Other donations amounting to around $1400 will be used to help pay for Scholarships!
I just have to smile knowing that the ministries that Milk and Honey Missions support will be able to continue for another year. AND that our new ministry of a community library is coming to fruition! A building was found near the square in La Villa AND this building is in pretty good condition! We do need to help pay for rent each month, find furniture, tech equipment, books, etc.
So if you are considering donating some money on GiveMN Give to the Max Day Thursday, Nov. 16th, please consider the library in La Villa for your donation! Even $10 goes a long way in Honduras. We have a $5000 matching grant in place!
Thank you again for all of the support and prayers that you have given to the people of Honduras and to our little non-profit of Milk and Honey Missions, Inc. We could not support the ministries without others who have a heart and passion for these wonderful people.
