In a few days, members of the UCC Kennebec Valley Association Honduras Mission Team will be flying to the Island of Roatán in Honduras. We have members from the following Churches going on the trip: First Congregational Church of Waterville, Winslow Congregational Church, Winthrop Congregational Church and the Vassalboro Friends Church. We will be involved in three health clinics, a building project to help our partner church construct a retaining wall and visits to two local schools. Joining the team from the First Congregational Church of Waterville are Rev. David Anderman, Kim Drummond, and Paul Gosselin. Members from Winslow are Rev. Karen Byrne, Jim Nelson, Mary Morrison, and Katherine Smiley. Winthrop Congrgational Church members include Rev. Alice Anderman, leader of the team, Lisa deWolfe, Wendy Dennis, Cyndi Hall, Dana Hall and Linda Ruman. Also on the team are Ellen Bowman from the Vassalboro Friends Church, Jolene Newell, sister in law of Mary Morrison and Laurie Fitzgerad, sister of Lisa deWolfe. Jim Nelson has been in Honduras for two weeks taking a Spanish immersion Class. Lisa deWolfe and Laurie Fitzgerald arrived in Honduras on April 24th for some pre-work of the medical clinics. The remaining 13 members will fly to Roatán on April 28th from Boston.
We pray that you will be with each of us as we travel to Roatán, Honduras. May your energy invigorate us, your word instruct us, your peace enfold us, and your love secure us. Give us the eyes to see Christ in our new friends in Honduras.
Amen. (Prayer from 4/27 Commisioning Service for the Honduras Mission Team)
