Passports. Anti-malaria pills. Antibiotic prescriptions. mosquito repellant. Last-minute preparations are underway for fifteen mission team members from South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, and Canada who will converge in Quimistan, Honduras next Thursday, January 17.

One of the preparations is to start this blog as a way to provide real-time news from the mission field. If our efforts are successful, a member of the mission team will send periodic updates with maybe a photograph or two. We’re hoping this will allow you to share in some of the experiences we encounter as we interact with the people there and work on various projects. It will allow you to see in some small way how your donations are being used to improve the health, education, or housing of the people there.
