1. We have recently been investigating the possibility of starting a new high school nursing program in Honduras. This is a lengthy process that requires submitting proposals to the Department of Education. This summer Angie will be working with several other people in putting together the necessary initial paper work to submit to the Government. Once governmental approval is given, Angie will coordinate the planning activity for starting a nursing program.
2. Angie was recently invited to accompany our neighbor lady on a visit to the Choluteca prison. She was hesitant

Within our desire to be obedient to all that God wants us to do there are many options for service to those who are in prison. The prison director asked us to consider helping build a new area to house the women who are incarcerated. Among a total population of 600 inmates, there are 32 women. The director of the prison explained to us that he wants to allow the women to stay in Choluteca rather than sending them to another prison which would be farther away from thier families. We were also challenged to repair the floor in the prison chapel.
One of the most viable potential opportunities is to begin offering vocational courses in the prison. The prison has a large area that would be ideal for planting gardens and starting small animal projects.
Please pray with us about the direction we should take in this future ministry.
