Many things are in dire need of repair, in Honduras. The people have neither the material, the tools, or even the knowledge to do it them selves. They are capable, if only some one would take time to teach them a little, and give them the tools and material.
This is Luz Marie, 8 years old. She took a shine to me. She lives in the orphanage.
This is Luis. He took a liking to my wife. He wanted to come home with us. He was a bright young fellow.
This young man said "Tu y me mejor Amigos, si? " Yes he was a good friend!
His name was Olin.

Marsha and I are part of a Missionary team, that goes to Honduras twice a year. The people of Honduras are among the poorest in this half of the world.They are also some of the happeist and most friendly folk around the globe. Following are a few random photo's taken while there. If I printed all of them, it would take you 4 hours to view them all!
