Javier first visited the POI church when his son was in the POI Crucitas program. He continued to attend regularly, began to be discipled and started teaching a Sunday School class for kids. Soon after, he landed a job at a bakery with a good salary, and worked there for a few years.
You hear a lot about the work Point of Impact does in the neighborhoods of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. What you probably don’t know is that we have an incredible staff that holds each of these programs together, but rarely gets the recognition they deserve. This is the first of our weekly inside look at the staff of POI.
“I was at home with a nice bed and all I could think about were all the kids on dirt floors with water seeping in through their roofs,” Javier
When the church offered him a job as the teacher for the Feb 21 progam, he readily accepted, despite the pay cut.
“This program is important because people in this neighbourhood, people live in ruins instead of houses and sleep on dirt instead of beds. This program is the only opportunity for the kids to receive a meal and hear the word.”
They walk that long way just to get a meal and hear the word -Javier
