Habitat For Humanity Honduras Trip by Larry Grovenstein

Interested in learning about the recent Honduras trip I enjoyed? We not only worked on a residential house, but also we hiked to a mountain village, visited schools, a hospital, girls orphanage, infant to toddler orphanage, coffee farms, and an elder home. On Sunday, May 6, join me in Trinity  Hall as I share pictures and discussion of Honduras and the Habitat for Humanity trip. A light lunch will be available. I am really looking forward to sharing this experience with all of you and hope that you'll join me.
