International Mission Opportunity!

Paul and Linda Cargo are planning to participate in a mission trip to Honduras through Discovery Service Projects, the organization that first took us to work with Rice and Beans Ministries in Costa Rica, and they would love for you to consider joining them! Trip dates are from January 9 to 16, 2024 and we will be working on needed building maintenance at the Lamb Institute, a children’s home near Tegucigalpa. The cost of the trip is $1,450 and includes flight from Newark, ground transportation, lodging and all meals (except for travel days). The children’s home cares for over 60 children ranging in age from birth to age 17 and since school will not be is session there will be plenty of time to interact with them.

Think about it! Deadline to register is October 1st. Questions? Need more information? Contact Linda Cargo, or visit and
