Dear Friends, Thank you for your generous financial support of our 19th medical mission trip to the mountain villages of Honduras! We will be traveling in October and will use your donations to purchase medicine and help with other trip expenses. Some items we purchase in-country to avoid carrying them on the plane. We are gathering the following items so we can complete our health kits. We still need: toe nail clippers, fingernail brushes, tooth paste and tooth brushes. Thanks to the generosity of the Hope Quilters, we have an additional 100 health kit bags. These along with the others that we’ve been given put us up over 200 bags. School supplies are always needed including: pencils, colored pencils, wooden rulers, dry erase markers, white board erasers, pencil sharpeners and primary grade books in Spanish. We also work with the Honduran nurse, Saira, as she works with Dr. Lucas at the five clinics and at her house. We always try to bring over-the-counter supplies such as: ibuprofen, ranitidine, clotrimazole, E.C. aspirin (81 mg), triple antibiotic ointment, large band aids, acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine (30mg), loratidine tabs, cetirizine (10mg - generic Zyrtec), and loperamide (2mg). Thank you for helping us spread God's love to the mountain folks of Honduras. A collection box for you donated items will be available in the narthex very soon.
Jim & Katy Beno, Dr. Lucas Beno, and Michael Beno
