The team went to the school high in the mountains at La Montarita where we conducted a hygiene clinic for the students. Chuck teaches a student proper hand washing techniques.
The students were given a deworming pill, learned about brushing their teeth and received a fluoride treatment.
New desks and benches were built and painted for the classrooms. Mary enjoyed painting the desk and herself. Fortunately, there was enough paint for all the furniture.
The new desk to the left (before painting) replaces the deteriorating old desk to the right.
The teacher and head of the parent association were enthusiastic about the gift from HAF.
Kindergarten donations from First Presbyterian Church in Aiken helped provide funds for the swing set that was delivered today. Mary Maddrey, director of preschool at the church, stands in the back row.
The mission team had a father and daughter duo, Pop Buice and Kelli Roof. This is Pop’s second mission trip to Honduras, and he is a retired accountant who attends Williston United Methodist Church. Kelli lives in Columbia, SC, and attends Shandon United Methodist Church. She has two precious kids and enjoys outdoor adventures with them.
Kelli’s AP student, Angie, left, and her parents had dinner with the team. They enjoyed meeting for the first time and getting to know one another.
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” Galatians 6: 9-10.
