A Look Inside Villa Nueva | Loris’s Story

LDSC_0139oris used to work in a factory. She attended the POI church with her children every Sunday.

She began volunteering to clean the program. She did it not for no pay at all, simply because she was passionate about the work of POI.

Soon after, the Pastor of POI offered her a job.

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 our weekly inside look at the staff of POI.

Meet Loris.


This job is a blessing to me because this is a place that impacts people by giving and not expecting anything in return. -Loris

Ironic words coming from such a selfless woman.

We each have something we are good at. I can cook and it is such a blessing to give these kids nutritious meals and see their smiles at something so small. -Loris 

If you have been following our staff profiles, you probably remember Nancy, Loris’s daughter.


I am so thankful for this job because I can bless my kids and allow them to study with my salary. -Loris

Her daughter Nancy finished school and is now a teacher at POI Villa Nueva.

This organization uses things like food to share the gospel and change their lives, even though its small, its something most of them don’t get at home. -Loris 


YOU can help.

Pray. Pray for the kids to open their hearts to The Lord.

Sponsor. By sponsoring a child in any of the POI programs, you provide them with daily tutoring (and reinforcement lessons), a daily nutritious meal, medical care, and a chance to hear and see the love of Christ. To choose a child to sponsor today, click here.

POI has helped me to grow spiritually and allowed me to work with incredible encouraging people. I am so thankful. -Loris
