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.

Father’s Day Celebration

March 19 was Father’s Day in Honduras.  Father’s day is not widely celebrated in Honduras; it is nothing at all compared to Mother’s Day.  Much of this is due to the fact that the father figure is so often absent from his role as father in the Honduran family. Last week we celebrated Father’s Day […]
