Meet this Kids of Buen Samaritano, Honduras … They Are About to be Fed

Meet Alan. He’s a little boy who will BEG and FIGHT for your attention. As you can tell from the picture, we were trying to see if the camera was working … and unexpectedly it was.

This is sweet Angie, Paco & Kelin. They LOVE when you will sit down and play games with them.

She LOVES hugs

Most definitely my favorite little girl … Stephanie. Look at those dimples.

Meet Daniella and Emma … they will melt your heart.

Everyone knows that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with a little community in Honduras called Buen Samaritano. It’s one of the poorest communities you’ll find in Honduras.  It’s built on a hill right outside the dump where we work. Many of the people who live there, including the kids, have to work in the dump to try and live. The children there will just steal your heart … they have mine. Any time Marc asks, “Where do you want to work this year when you and your group are here?” I respond, “Let’s go to Buen Samaritano.” He’s always more than willing. We’ve done special one-time feedings there, built MANY houses there, done medical clinics there, but we’ve been unable to feed kids on a regular basis.

What this little community has desperately needed is a feeding center where the children can eat one meal a day … 5-6 days a week. Something they aren’t guaranteed now. That would SO bless these children who are so malnourished. When we were there this summer we visited one little home where the momma and her 2 year old baby had not eaten in 3 days because they simply didn’t have any money. It broke our hearts. This community has GOT to have a feeding center that can feed kids and also be used as a church on Sunday.

Yesterday while standing in a store, I fought back tears when Marc Tindall messaged me and said, he found a building and plot of land in Buen Samaritano, that we could have for a feeding center.  If we could come up with the money to buy it, we could be feeding children in that little community by the end of the year. More tears … and I’m not a big emotional person. This was an answered prayer.

The cost of the building and plot of land is … $6000. An amount that looks HUGE, but isn’t.  It’s really small compared to God.  Marc will be in Childress in two weeks and we plan to present him with a $6000 check to get that feeding center open. If you would like to help with the opening of this feeding center you can, but even if you can’t, it’s okay. We WILL have it open by end of the year. If you want to help, you have two options …

(Send a tax deductable check to)  Childress Church of Christ, PO BOX 239, Childress, Texas  79201 (attn Feeding Center)

OR

You can use my Paypal that is on this page, but please understand … it’s not a tax deductible donation.

If you have questions … please feel free to email me.  Oh, and I’ll be releasing all the details on my December Honduras trip in a week. I’d love to have you join me on the trip.  One of the things I PRAY that we’ll be doing is spending a day working in a new feeding center in Beun Samaritano. :)

Children should never go hungry … EVER!

  7. Trey,

    This also is an answer to my prayers! My prayer was for you Trey. I’ve been praying for God to raise up more laborers as we are in dire need for more help. This world is suffering and so many christians are living in the comfort of their own homes unwilling to lift a finger to feed the poor.

    “He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses.” Proverbs 28:27

    God bless you Trey as you continue to use your time to go out of your way to help out the needy! I know God will transform your mind and heart as you help them. I know this because I too have moved to a poor country as a missionary.

    Just like where you are going; South America and Philippines have a lot in common. They are countries that are very religious Catholics that look to idols for their righteousness and not Jesus. Many aren’t sealed with the Holy Spirit, so use your time to speak with them about a personal God who cares. God is so amazing and will do miracles for you, and those kids! I’ve seen miracles by the hundreds, and know His love endures forever!

    I think before I start preaching I should just end this comment, haha! God bless you and your family Trey!

    Brother in Christ,
