Please help Mark and Jen volunteer at an orphanage in Honduras.

Our goal is to volunteer for one week at a center for abused, neglected and abandoned children in Honduras. We'll go with two church groups to Orphanage Emmanuel, a Christian children's home, in Guaimaca, Honduras, this fall. We'll do some manual labor - installing sewer pipes - and also spend time with children who don't get much one-on-one attention. A trip last year introduced us to Karla, a 16-year-old girl who had eaten ice cream only once in her life. We were able to give her another taste of it -- check out that photo of it to the left. It was a small but tangible act showed her that someone cares about her. Now we occasionally trade letters with Karla. (We also dug trenches to install a new sewer line - important work, yes, but much less memorable than investing time with the children...)
