Missions Effort for Honduras

Years ago God began a work that would involve Pin Oaks in many ways. Personally it would involve one our families in dramatic, life altering ways. God placed a vision for Orphans in the heart of the Waits family and today that vision is spreading through their friends and family. As the Waits prepare to leave for a mission trip to Honduras we have been invited to join them in their efforts. The need is real.

shoe drive squareWe often take it for granted what we wear on our feet. In fact, many of us have the luxury of “color coordinating” our shoes to outfits, choosing shoes based on our activity, and many times we simply throw away shoes because we have too many. In orphanages all across Honduras children live their days without the basic needs of clothing. A big part of this is shoes. We can help. We want to ship as many shoes as possible with the Waits. From now till November 8th we will take your donation of shoes (sandals, flip-flops, crocs, etc. as well as athletic shoes) to be shipped to Honduras.

The Waits will be working with Reach Out Ministries while on site and they will visit about half of their 20 orphanages. I hope you will partner with us as we begin our support of God’s work in Honduras and God’s work through our friends.

    This is incredible, and we will be gathering shoes to send with them. We have an over-abundance of …everything. The world is in need, and we can be God’s tools to bring some hope and peace to the hurting in the world. November is National Orphan Month, and Nov 8 is Orphan Sunday.

      Whitney it is such an honor to help in any way. This will be a fun way we can work together as a church to help meet some of the many needs of orphans in Honduras. I am excited to see how God will continue to involve us in this type of work in the future. Thanks for doing your part.

    Jennifer, Me too! I am hoping this is the beginning to a long partnership in missions between POCF and our good friends the Waits and those they will serve.

    Hey we have already gathered 3 large trash cans full of stuff to send to Honduras. Anything you can bring is appreciated. They will be loading a crate on the 10th to send down so there is no limit on how many shoes you want to bring. What an exciting and easy way we can help this effort to care for Honduran orphans. Thanks for all you are doing…

      As an update we may have filled an entire truck bed with stuff to ship to Honduras. It will be well used and a major blesssing to the Orphans that Reach Out serves in Honduras. Thanks again for your generosity.
