A note from our boys home:
On June 20, 2009, POI opened its doors to children who, before that day, had no hope and an uncertain future. POI took these children off the streets, out of abusive environments, away from poverty, hunger, loneliness, despair, and gave them a place to call home. Each of the stories of our children is proof of God’s redeeming love and hope for the future. Several of you have had the opportunity to meet them and learn a little bit more about them. Today, we wanted to share some exciting news happening at the boys home!
As many of you know our boys love to play table tennis. Over the last few years, their skills have developed immensely. This past year, all the boys began competing in tournaments and some of them were even selected to represent Honduras in a Central American tournament.
Anderson will compete in the U-18 division, while Helton, Isaac, and Andre compete for the U-15. They will travel to Guatemala and compete against teams from; El Salvador, Panama, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Guatemala. Our boys, who train daily, look forward to giving it their best and possibly earn some awards.
Alongside Mary, they will leave Tegucigalpa next Tuesday, February 7th, and will return home on Sunday, February 12th. Please keep them in your prayers and join us in celebrating their accomplishments!
