Why We Go
We go to OLR because we believe we can change lives, including our own. We believe in the power of relationships. We celebrate how many lives have been touched and changed through this mission.
A Mission of Presence
For over twenty years, Christ Church parishioners journeyed to San Pedro Sula, Honduras for a 10 day mission trip at Our Little Roses, which is a home for fifty-six young girls. Ranging in age from 2 ½ to 18, the girls have previously been abandoned or abused and have lived in extreme poverty.
The girls lack a mother and father to love and care for them. They are raised by tias (aunts). The mission team offers joy and happiness to these girls, bringing them love, warm hugs, friendly smiles, and sharing God with them.
The mission team offered the girls a wide variety of activities including arts & crafts projects, swimming, hiking, soccer and cook-outs. They assisted in the bilingual summer school and painted their classrooms for three days!
The trip is truly a life-changing event. It is a wonderful experience to bring joy into these children’s lives.
A Prayer for Mission
May God the Father come to us to strengthen our hands for service.
May God the Son teach us to search for Him in others and to find Him in ourselves.
May God the Holy Spirit fill our hearts with fiery purpose and conviction.
May all that we are and all that we do reflect the love of Christ Jesus.
