DSC_1189

For six years, members of The Crossing have been traveling on mission to Honduras.

This year, the Honduras Team will again be traveling during Spring Break: March 26-April 2. Please pray for them this week as they prepare to leave and during the entirety of their trip.

Below are descriptions of their team activities and challenges provided by Sarah Kohnle, the Team Leader. This is her 6th mission trip to Honduras and her 4th trip as Team Leader.

Team demographics:

We are taking 14 (two men and 12 women this year) including a three-generation family group this year. In addition to members from the Crossing, we will have people from Jefferson City, New Florence and St. Louis. Ages range from 20 to 76. The majority of people are first-timers, mostly without medical expertise.

The threat of the Zika virus caused us to scramble a little as people needed to withdraw for medical reasons, but our group is back up to full strength.
