In 1993, I made my first trip to Juticalpa, Olancho and fell in love with the gracious people there. So much so, I have returned each year with a group of people looking for an experience of a life time. Each time I have gone I have learned more and more about the people and the culture that they love, and I have witnessed many of my team be drawn onto a journey of new awareness that the face of God is all people. With that awareness comes an acceptance of our own responsiblity to level the playing field of the riches of the world, in other words how to live with justice and equality. I have made 20 trips and I look forward each year reuinting with my Honduran friends, helping where I can and sharing a new experience with those team members who have joined in the mission.
