HONDURAS: The Micah Project

I’ve just returned with a group of 12 St. Louis folks from the Micah Project in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  We had a wonderful time hanging with the guys at their new pad affectionately called, “Micah 2.0”  It’s a beautiful new home located in the mountains next to Villa Linda Miller.  We walked the streets with the guys and met some of their friends who are still on the streets addicted to drugs (mostly glue.)  The Micah Project is a safe haven for street kids where they are loved, housed, taught and they become part of a wonderful Christian family under the leadership of Michael Miller and his fantastic team of both American and Honduran staff.  For more info. on the Micah Project in Honduras, go to;  www.micahprojecthonduras.org

Here are some photos from our trip!
