The Honduras Committee was formed in 2011 to plan our first mission trip to Honduras. The committee works in solidarity with the Missionary Sisters of Mariam and the people of Tamara Honduras. Tamara is a community of about 2500 people approx. 30 miles outside Tegucigalpa.
There have been 2 mission trips, the first in 2013 and a second in 2016. A third trip was planned for 2019 however due to civil unrest in Honduras we decided to cancel the trip. The main focus on the first 2 trips was the restoration of the historic church, however with both trips events were held to help build community with the people of Tamara. Household items and clothing were also distributed. Moving forward with the committee the long-term goal is to continue to support the community as needed. We show ongoing support to the community by sending cartons of requested items and clothing. The Sisters are our main contact and keep us informed of what is happening in the community. The Sisters also support a free clinic for the community, supplies for this clinic have been included in the donations sent to Tamara. The committee would like to plan another mission trip but at this time no plans have been made due to travel restrictions to the country.
This committee meets on second Wednesday nights at 7:30 (starting in October) in the conference rooms. For more information contact Dianne Anderson at [email protected]
