Emmanuel Orphanage!

As many of you know, Emmanuel Orphanage in Honduras has been sending 2 students a year to Portantorchas. Portantorchas provides a full scholarship, but this in no way means that there aren't costs associated with these students for Emmanuel. With travel expenses, insurance, immigration procedures, health issues (insurance is for emergencies), etc., we recommend that these students bring $450 additionally. This is an added burden for Emmanuel as they already have over 400 kids that they are trusting the Lord for on a daily basis.

Personally, I would like to relieve Emmanuel of this burden, and would like some of our Alumni to consider giving toward this specific need. I usually don't like asking for money for Portantorchas' needs (although I've been breaking with tradition lately), but I have no problem asking for money for others. You can follow the link at the top of the page to to donate through paypal. If we have a high response, we will simply put that money in the bank for future students from Emmanuel.

Take this opportunity as well to remember to keep Portantorchas in your prayers. We are always longing for them.
