Thanksgiving and the Jesus Banquet

Thanksgiving build week is coming up quickly. Last year we were blessed to celebrate Thanksgiving in Honduras by building houses for 12 families. Buid week is becoming a tradition. 2010 is the 3rd annual and the needs continue to be great. Since the first of June there has been more than 100 inches of rain in many parts of Honduras and that much rain has destroyed many many homes. We know that we cannot rebuild every house but, we can touch the lives of 10 to 15 families during the traditional time that many in the USA are offering thanks for the many blessings that GOd has given them. If you want to come to build week, plan now and let me know. The cost is the same as a week in the summer - $1350 will buy you the opportunity to build on a house every day - except Thanksgiving Day. It will buy you air fare, 2 meals a day, and a Thanksgiving Feast with the Casa Kids. (Insurance & exit fee too).

Just a couple of weeks past build week, we will celebrate the 2nds annual Jesus Banquet for the Dump. On December 8, we will set up tables and chairs - (with table clothes) and serve an amazing meal to 1,000. Our plan for 2010 is to prepare a Christmas box for every child and a bag of hygene goods for every adult. The Jesus Banquet is a unique event and we want as many as possible to come and serve this meal to our friends from the dump. Most folks are planning to come on the 6th or 7th and will stay until the 10th or 11th. Those planning to stay with the group need to contact me at facebook or by email at and I will outline the cost of lodging, meals, transport, etc. Imagine - serving more than 1000! It will definantly be another great day in Honduras.
