While we serve with local organizations, from food banks to outreach programs, we also strive to make an impact on the nations. We are currently preparing our sixth trip abroad, and will be supporting Open Door Ministries at several of their projects in Tocoa, Honduras.

 Providing day-to-day support for Gates of Hope, a long-term safe house for sexually abused girls who have become pregnant as young as 10 years old.
 Care giving and support at the Village of Hope, an ever-growing orphanage and school.
 Facilitate numerous short-term mission teams from around the U.S., as they bring medical, construction and other volunteers to serve the needs of Open Door Ministries. Continue reading

The giggles and squeals that came out of my elated little boy brought such joy to my heart, I can’t even explain it. I am a proud father…
