Making a Difference in the Dump

It’s obvious we’re making a difference in the dump in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Here are a few things I’ve seen …

* a purification system was put in this past December that provides clean water to the area.

* a day care is being run just outside the dump and parents are encouraged to being their children there instead of taking them in the dump.

* weekly feedings that take place every Wednesday. Today at noon the people in the dump will get to eat a plate of hot food.

And then yesterday, Marc Tindall wrote on his Facebook status about another way we’re making a difference in the dump. His words were …

“More than a year ago, a group from the local University in Honduras, started construction on a place in the dump where people could clean up & shower. When the money ran out this project was stopped. Yesterday in thanks to Dump Day 2010 and Bread for a Hungry World, construction restarted.”

I just want to say thank you today for all you’ve given through this blog to make this possible. Dump Day 2010 was a huge success and no doubt Dump Day 2011 will be just as great.

    We also just put a pure water system inside the cafeteria of the school – small group from Indiana that had already put on at Casa wanted to make sure that the kids had safe water to drink and to cook with.
    Trey, what a blessing you are to the people of Honduras and to Casa de Esperanza and our ministry efforts here. Thank you for all you do.

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
