The Sperro Group had a busy week, they helped with the construction of the new Clinic/Admin building, helped painting the new Rehab Center and the girls’ Dorm, and spent some quality time with the children and teens from our homes, their time shared in our campus was a great experience not only for them but to our children, Thank You to each member of the Sperro Mission Team!


We welcomed new friends from Toronto, Canada this weekend. TheSperro Group, led by Greg O’Rio, is here to help with the construction projects on campus. They’ve also brought many much-needed items for our children. Thank you friends!

His health is fragile, however we are confident that with the tender loving care, medications and with God’s blessing, William is on a solid path to recovering his health. We look forward to seeing his first smile!


Mend a child 2014

Our campus was blessed by a mission team from the Mend a Child Foundation lead by Dr. Tom and Calle Wieg last week. During their visit they constructed a sidewalk from the Children’s Home to the Chapel & main kitchen. This special proyect was made to facilitate the mobility of Jenny – who uses a leg braces and a walker, and Lily – who uses a wheel chair to get around. The team also worked on the Admin/Temp Clinic building by pouring concrete for an external sidewalk and the bathrooms for the outclinic patients. It was a great experience for the children to have this group of old friends and “extended family” visiting  our Home again.

Our Children enjoying the Christmas with Santa ClausThese last days have been full of activities and holiday spirit in our Campus. Our Children and Staff prepared a beautiful program which was held in the church where many members of our family gathered together from far and near to celebrate Christmas. We also received the Christmas gifts that were sent from the Oakhurst and Mariposa Church in CA, that were specially prepared for our Children! And with them the special visit of Dr. Tom and his family, as well as the SIMS group from Loma Linda! Happy holidays to you!

On this cold and rainy Thursday – Thanksgiving Day – we had a delicious bean soup served steaming hot with rice and corn tortillas. We are grateful for good food to eat and for our friends across the miles. We wish you a LOVE-FILLED THANKSGIVING DAY

Mami Verlene, Aileen and our Children in Honduras

The dream of a new school became a reality for more than one hundred little ones who have been meeting in a temporary lean-to for several years in the near-by communities of Las Palmas and La Torre.  Pan American Health Service donated a lovely hill-top site for an architect with Schools for the Children of the World of Mears, MI,  to coordinate and assist the efforts of the children’s parents, the Yibrin family and our local municipality of Santa Cruz to build the three-room school.  Construction began in February with the students and their families providing the unskilled labor.  Working together, the school was finished and inaugurated on July 12, 2013.

After watching them grown through the years, our hearts were filled with pride and great joy to witness Patty, Ana Elsi and Dinora receive their university degrees in Nursing. Ana Elsi completed her degree with a thesis to become a licenced nurse. Having achieved her dream of becoming a profesional nurse she is now joining our work team at Servicio Panamericano de Salud (PAHS Honduras). Meanwhile Patty and Dinora will return to their university in Costa Rica, UNADECA, to complete their degree to be licenced nurses also. We are deeply grateful to all our supporters who have made this great achievement possible for our girls! A special thanks to those who sponsored their scholarships Mend a Child Foundation, Dr. Larry & Jean LaClair, Paul & Sheryl Selivanoff, Dr. Carlos & Graci Japas and John Beldin.

Seventy students graduated from the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School on December 6. The graduation ceremony took place in the lovely facilities of the local university campus of Universidad Cristiana Nuevo Milenio. The graduates received certifications and diplomas in Auto Mechanics, Sewing, Wood Carving, Wood Working and the EDUCATODOS program – 6th and 9th grades. The joy and pride of the students and families was a pleasure to behold and it fills the PAHS team with great satisfaction to know that we are helping to break the cycle of poverty through education.
