On July 17, the THRIVE Youth Group will travel to Honduras for our summer mission trip. We’ll spend much of the mission at the Honduras International Bilingual School (HIBS) and the Organic Learning Center, institutions seeking to grow and equip local Honduran children and adults to live better lives and move out of poverty. HIBS and the Organic Learning Center desperately need donations of several types of items: backpacks (children and adult), collared long sleeve shirts, work boots, bath towels, whiteboard markers, bed sheets and pillow cases (twin size), antihistamines, anti-itch cream, hemorrhoid meds, antibiotic cream, Tylenol and Ibuprofen, Band-Aids, and non-gummy vitamins. Starting next Sunday, June 26, the church is collecting these items in the blue bins in the Narthex and church office. We’re also looking for large pieces of luggage that we can use to transport these supplies, so if you have any luggage you’d like to get rid of, please consider donating it. Thank you for all your contributions.
