St. Mark's Rector, Father Gary Jackson
This month I will be returning to Honduras, this time with Joi Robertson, Bill Borger and Brendan Murphy. We look forward to meeting with the good saints of St. John’s Episcopal School in Siguatepeque, Honduras and further establishing our ties.
This is an exciting opportunity for our students and for us to participate in some international aspects of mission and outreach. I ask that you pray for us as we travel, and if possible donate to help cover our expenses, which should be about $1,800 - $2,000 dollars including in-country costs.
Please see me if you would like to contribute and also, if you are interested, talk to me about going with us next time. You may make a donation with a memo of “Honduras” on the envelope or check.
Every blessing to you.
