Honduras Trip 2012

In less than one week our team from Rincon Mountain Presbyterian Church (RMPC) will be boarding a plane to Honduras.  We will be in the country from August 4th to 11th.  While we are there we will be working with Mike and Erin Pettengill, a missionary family that our church supports.  Mike and Erin live in the coastal city of La Ceiba, Honduras where they run a medical clinic and are building houses and a community center for the poorest of the poor.  They have had a busy summer full of short term groups like ours, and will have hosted a total of 16 teams by the time summer is out.  

Our team consists of 8 men and we are excited about both the help we will be able to provide as well as the new perspective and the impact that ministering to this community will have on us.  Our ministry will be in the suburb of La Ceiba called Armenia Bonito.  Each morning we will be driven out into the community to one of the ministry construction projects that the Pettengills oversee and work along side the locals.  In the afternoons we will play soccer and other games with the children.  Mike also runs an organized kids club that we will be able to help out with.  Evenings will be spent together as a team back at the missionary compound.

Please keep our team in your prayers as we undergo our final preparations.  We would especially like prayer for safe travel, good health, and that we could be a blessing to the people we meet.
