Turning Point Honduras Mission Team was formed in 2018 to assist Orphanage Emmanuel, a private Christian orphanage in Guaimaca, Honduras. Our first trip was in 2017 when we traveled with Team Honduras from Bolingbroke, GA. Over the last 3 years over 60 people have traveled from our church to work in the orphanage. While at OE we assist the staff on the farm, in the school, in the clinic, in the wood shop, and in the toddler and infant houses.
We may have a specific project to complete while there that has been organized prior to our trip. We have previously bought and installed playground equipment, built a bridge, planted vegetables, built then recovered a greenhouse, painted, poured concrete, built frames for large banners we had made for the church and dining hall, installed a sprinkler system in a field, built raised planter beds, provide healthy snacks and pinatas for the younger children, have awesome water balloon battles, and provide a special meal for the older boys and girls.
But our best and most important job we do is spend time and give lots of love and attention to children that have known little, if any, love until they came to Emmanuel.
