Shipping Container Project & June Update

Heart4Children and Ninos de la Luz Boys' home and school want to thank everyone for their over-the-top support for getting the container shipped to Honduras. This was such a huge task, and if it had not been for the outstanding help, it would never have happened! When we started the project we had never shipped a container before and had no money to ship it, but we did have a generous offer of a donation by Tomball's Concordia Lutheran High School of nearly 100 perfect lockers to be used in the new dormitory. What resulted was a coming together of nearly a hundred folks who each did a part in collection, organization, or donation of money.  The end result was a container not only of the lockers, but also thousands of dollars worth of other items needed in the new dormitory and school, and enough money to pay all shipping costs. There is even enough left over to fund a project that will be done by our team in July.  From nothing but an idea to much more than we could think or dream! Isn't that the way our God works? He moves in the hearts of people, and the world is impacted. So, from the bottom of our hearts, a great big thank you!

Our founders' daughter, Bethany Cook, will leave for Honduras to work at the boys' home and school on June 29. She will return on July 28. Please remember her during this time in your thoughts and prayers for physical strength, health, and safety.

Finally, we would like to remind you of our upcoming team trip in July. A team of 17 will leave on July 13 and return July 22. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as safety and health are always a concern.

Thank you for your years of support, and know that over 98% of every dollar you donated went directly to serve others - we are a 100% volunteer organization. And you may be surprised to know that over the last 5 years, Heart4Children has provided over $600,000 of support, plus untold physical item donations and project work. We are so thankful for all you are doing in partnering with us!
