St. Mark's Rector, Father Gary Jackson
In October I returned to Honduras, this time with Joi Robertson, Bill Borger and Brendan Murphy. We met with the good saints of
St. John’s Episcopal School in Siguatepeque, Honduras, further establishing our ties, and visited several churches.
Please see me if you would like to contribute toward this project 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.
