Below are proposed projects for 2017.  These projects represent areas of ministry that will improve the lives and ministries of those we serve.

Honduras

  • $30,000 needed to update, improve and expand the clean water system in Monterrey.
  • $20,000 needed for home improvements – renovations on homes in Monterrey most in need.  This will include concrete floors, metal roofs, exterior siding or block walls, clean water, latrines, smokeless stoves, and pilas (all-purpose concrete sinks).
  • $65,000 needed to launch new micro economic projects and ministries.
  • $4,800 needed to support the school feeding program in Monterrey.
