If you are looking for a way to give back this Christmas Season, we’d love to invite you to help support the mission organization that we partner with in Honduras!! This amazing company, Children’s Cup, has Care Points across Honduras where they care for physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children. Sometimes the only love or food these children receive comes from the Care Points. The stories of the impact they are transforming the lives of children across the country and the impact on the communities as a whole are absolutely incredible. Children’s Cup truly brings the love of Jesus in very practical ways. Below is a link to learn more about helping make this Christmas a little brighter for the children of Honduras. And remember — the students in our Upper School who go on the Honduras Mission Trip will be visiting these very children in April! https://friend.childrenscup.
