Trips: January 4-11, 11-18, 18-25

Interested in being a part of transformation? Join us January 4 – 11 as we serve at Orphanage Emmanuel in Honduras.

Our missionaries, Mike and Karen Madsen, are working with students transitioning out of the orphanage and into the workforce. One way they serve this group of students is by offering vocational training. In order for the vocational school to be certified by the Honduran Board of Education it must be fully functional. We will be sending a team down January 4 – 11 to paint the interior and exterior and construct shelves and workbenches. The goal is to have the vocational school fully functional by the time school starts in February. If you can handle a paint roller, hold a hammer, or hold a piece of lumber while someone else uses the hammer, then we need you! The sign up deadline is Thursday, November 30. Contact Misty Leach at 770.536.2341 or mleach@gfumc.com for more information or to sign up today.
