Rescuing Street Kids
Headed by Pastor Jorge Pinto, this ministry rescues kids from the streets and offering them a chance at life. There are two facilities: a Transition House in Tegucigalpa and a Ranch an hour away in Talanga. This team will work on the Ranch. There are more nearly children and youth in the project. We will also be serving the community's poor.
The Lenca Indians
The Lencas are native Hondurans who live in the mountains near El Salvador. There is little medical care available to them and they are an impoverished people in the community in which we will be serving. We expect to treat around 500 in a two day period in relatively primitive conditions.
