WHO: Main Street United Methodist Church Team Honduras
WHAT: Apple butter-making event
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 11
WHY: Since 2005, Team Honduras has been organizing mission trips to Honduras for men, women and children, working closely with United Methodist Church of El Paraiso. The selling of apple butter is this year’s fund-raising effort for the missionary excursion. It is available for $6.50 per pint at Main Street UMC; for information, call (618) 462-2495.
“Our work has included the construction of a church in El Paraiso near the Nicaragua border, providing Vacation Bible School for the children in that village, and building masonry stoves with exterior vents for families previously cooking over open fires inside their homes without exterior vents,” Greg Gelzinnis said. “In 2013, Team Honduras began work on a new Mission Headquarters building and church in the capital city of Tegucigalpa, and also provided VBS for the children in the surrounding neighborhoods. Our work will continue in these two areas in June of 2015.”
