Missions: Welcoming Our Honduran Friends

By Chris and Dan Moore

The Leadership Center Graduates Arriving From Honduras

girlsWe are pleased to announce the upcoming arrival of Leadership Center graduates Olga Sosa and Yanetzi Ortiz on December 9. Olga and Yanetzi will be staying with us and will be a part of the Trinity family through the New Year. They are coming to present their business plans to potential donors and investors and to serve short business internships in the McLean area. We hope you will make time to meet these very special young women and hear of their exciting plans for their future in Honduras.

The Leadership Center (TLC) is a small, rural college in Honduras established to provide a post high school education to students who otherwise could not afford it. TLC’s three year program emphasizes English fluency, ethical leadership and entrepreneurial studies. After graduation most students will launch a small business in their local communities.

Dan will teach business and entrepreneurship classes and work with the seniors to develop their small business plans. Chris will teach Psychology and Computer Literacy to the junior class. There will also be ample time for various craft projects which are sold by the students through their Artisans Club. A special thanks to Crafts for a Cause for their continuing support of this endeavor. In addition to teaching, we hope to develop our personal coffee farming and chicken-raising skills.

  1. Pray for TLC, its ministry and its 30 students.
  2. Come to TLC on a mission trip, which is planned for mid to late February; see team leader Jose Rivera for details. We would love to see you – it will be a wonderful experience.
  3. Send supplies or a gift with us for the students, such as flash drives, dry erase markers, personal toiletries, coffee mugs, fabric scissors, thread, needles, kitchen knives, dish towels and DVD movies.

We would love to answer any questions about this ministry and we look forward to introducing Olga and Yanetzi to our Trinity Family.
