The Rev. Paul Nancarrow has faithfully kept a blog for each day of the Honduras Mission Trip (the missioners all arrived back home in the wee hours of this morning all safe and sound!). You can read his blog on our website or you can also download the blog in a convenient PDF. Either way please check out the good works that have gone on this past week and please contemplate supporting the Youth Honduras Mission Trip which will take place this summer. If you would like to donate to the youth Honduras mission trip please send a check with that designation to Trinity. Thank you!
