I had the privilege of visiting Honduras with my son and a
colleague to further the mission of P.E.S.T. Relief International - to
provide comfort and relief to those in need.
Our first stop was the city of San Pedro Sula.
In San Pedro Sula, we met with our partners who help us run our
micro-enterprise located there. This micro-enterprise manufactures
mattress protectors for the children of the orphanages in Honduras.
Through this effort we are helping the ladies of Honduras break the
cycle of poverty for their families as well as providing sanitary
sleeping environments for the children.
was our next stop where we attended language school and worked in a
local orphanage for a week. Here we faced many challenges and rewards. I
did not get the memo that my teacher would not speak ANY English and
there was no air conditioning to cool off from the 105 degree heat
I was so excited to bring
120 mattress protectors to the local orphanage! My biggest mission yet.
Little did I know that I was going to be involved in a much larger
Upon our first visit, we learned that they had purchased 120 foam
mattresses for the protectors we had brought. This sounded great until I
learned that they asked us to cut them down to size with a machete!!
Once we were able to locate some razor blades, we went to work. Much to
my surprise, we combined the old mattress with the new foam and wrapped
it up in our mattress protector making a functionally new mattress.
After three hot and tiring days, I became hooked on the reality of
the impact I could make on the quality of these children's lives.
I'm hoping for partners like you to help me continue this momentum
and provide sanitary living environments for orphans, those who are
abused and individuals at-risk. If you would like to participate in
providing new beds and protectors for orphans in Honduras as well as for
various shelters here in the US, please join our efforts.
