Deck the Halls with Missions Planning "Fa La la ..."

Seasons Greetings!

It is that time of year again.  Put your creative side to good use!  Sign up for AHMEN's Rio de Agua Viva public health teaching team through one of four community leadership workshops in Honduras!  This isn't like the Sorting Hat.  All options here personify positive productivity of Potter's parlor!

You explore each one to decide which one is best for you!  Each of our teams are educational.  We always need Spanish/English interpreters.  Students, teachers, engineers, health and business professionals, lifeguards, and everyone in-between are encouraged to apply!

The Mountains
Will you join my team to La Esperanza in Intibuca where the latest "Agente Comunitario de Salud Integral" workshop is being initiated?  Partners include local mayor and hospital support, World Vision - Honduras.  Topics Include: Beekeeping, Maternal Health & Wellness

The Jungle
Or will you join Ken Hanson's team to La Moskitia to return to a nice shady spot for shiny people called Raista?  Ken will build heavily on the water component of previous teams in an attempt to gather data and organize.

Rural Caribbean
You may wish to join I'Reka Jordan and Gregg Dellert's team to Cusuna to work with the local water department to assess more economical, ecologically friendly, and practical ways to supply safe drinking water to the surrounding communities.  They will also work with the local orphanage and church in the concept of community gardening as a method of fundraising.

Urban Caribbean
Greg Thompson's team, however, could be the team for you!  He will be working with Milton Harry from the La Ceiba mayor Dr. Sabio's youth collaborative along with Dixon Morales from CeroPlast.  Greg's workshop in Jutiapa will lead 3-day lessons in youth development.

(Prices exclude air travel) Typical team tuition ranges from $1K to $1,300 per person and requires a non-refundable $100 deposit toward your team fees.  This fee is usually due around the first of the year.  Team fees cover all food, clean water, sleeping arrangements, in-country travel, cultural engagements and team leadership.

We have a lot of planning to do before we leave in June.  How can you help?  Jump in the river today.  Feed the current.  Share the fountain of knowledge with those who need it the most.  Help local Honduran leaders learn to solve many of their community problems with local solutions.

If you think you are not a traveler, you can still help.  You can contact the various team leaders on instructions to help by donating, fundraising, and/or pray for this River of Living Water team and its many tributaries.  Or you can check out my other special project in Honduras.

For a donation of $50 or higher, you will get your name (or name of business) on the back of our team t-shirts and a tagged thank you note on our team social media and AHMEN website.

Team t-shirts will also be for sale.  Designs and pricing to be determined.

The water is fine.  Our channel runs mightily and meanders wide but only flows with your help.  Together, we are the difference.
