The First Volunteer

Several posts ago Emily asked for people to come volunteer to help teach English in classes at Jubilee.  I had not read that post until now.  I had the amazing opportunity of being the first volunteer to come work at Jubilee in the classroom.  I spent two weeks working at  Jubilee and loved  becoming a […]

Visit to Chiminke – Children’s Musuem

Last week, we continued our yearly tradition of taking all of our students to Chiminke, a very modern, new, and state-of-the-art children’s musuem here in Tegucigalpa.  The school has a sponsorship program for kids coming from schools in poor at-risk neighborhoods, like La Era, where Jubilee’s Christian school is located. After filling out all the proper […]

Father’s Day Celebration

March 19 was Honduran Father’s Day.  For some reason, Honduran and American Mother’s Day always coincide, but not Father’s Day.  Father’s Day has never been as big or as attractive of a celebration as Mother’s Day, probably, mostly due to the fact that so many Fathers are absent in the line of duty.  This year, […]

5 Reasons we’re excited about Jubilee!

1. 80% of our students come from families that have no connection to the church, children who otherwise might not hear the Good news of Jesus.    2. Many local Honduran Christians are getting involved in Jubilee’s ministry  volunteering, praying, and giving.  We give thanks for Hondurans like Pacita.  She sells tamalitos every weekend and […]

La Graduación

On Oct 29 Jubilee graduated over 80 Pre-K & Kindergarten students  in the community of La Era in Tegucigalpa!  In Honduras it is very common for Pre-K and Kindergarten students to have a graduation ceremony once they have completed the school year. One year ago we could not have possibly imagined all the Lord would […]
