Katlyn McConnell, Finding Hope Honduras

GBPC supports Finding Hope in El Porvenir, Honduras through financial donations, prayer support, and by helping with various projects to help raise support and awareness for this ministry.  Finding Hope was started by former GBPC youth member Katlyn McConnell, who lives full time in this community in Honduras.  This ministry seeks to bring hope to the children and women of that community by helping to lift them out of poverty.  The ministry helps women through a small business trade program which teaches women to make bracelets that are sold both in Honduras and in the U.S.  Likewise, there is a school sponsorship program for the children to be able to attend school, as well as Sunday school programs.  The ministry is in the process of constructing a Women and Children’s Center, where they intend to house all the programs of the ministry, as well as a site for refuge for battered women.  Church members can help support this ministry by offering to donate items to the annual Finding Hope Garage Sale held in May each year, working at the sale, purchasing bracelets made by the woman or helping to sell the bracelets here in the states.
