Volunteered for OAF in 2009. It is making an amazing impact on the lives of Olanchanos. Joined the board in the last year to continue my involvement. Over the years the organization has grown and become more sophisticated. It provides over 100 jobs in Juticalpa and quality education to the children of the city.

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.
