Advocating for Honduras
With all the news about people / children fleeing Latin America, I am even more grateful for Compassion International’s presence and ministry with children and their communities. I visited two of my Honduran children in May/June, and their poverty is acute. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Central America, and is faced with much violence. While staying in San Pedro Sula, one of the most violent cities worldwide, there were armed guards everywhere… in front of my hotels, in front of each entrance to the mall, guards patrolling through the mall, and even stationed in front of each bank inside the mall. Definitely not our typical shopping experience back here at home, but the reality they face for a culture spiraling out of control.
I was blessed to visit the two projects that Yolani and Daniela attend. Below are a few photos from Daniela’s project, Breezes of Paradise.
Walking up the steep dirt road to Daniela’s home… This photo is very typical of what the roads and homes looked like.
As a result of my visit, my heart has been turned even more toward these Honduran children, and as an advocate with Compassion International, I am personally advocating for children who attend the same projects as my own children. I invite you to consider changing the story for one of these precious sweeties, and giving them a new hope for their lives. You can see the children I have available here.
