So here we are again, my friends. For those that don’t know me, my name is John DeLancey from Trinity Episcopal Church in Hattiesburg Mississippi. I have been part of an extraordinary group of people at Trinity called Teach Them To Fish that has traveled back and forth to Honduras for the last 14 years. Our mission has been to teach the people various trades and skills so they can support themselves, their churches, and their communities. Over a year ago, they sent me down to Honduras to live, love, teach, and learn about its culture and beautiful people. It is a great honor and privilege to serve here. They are a loving, hard working people.
I am living on the island of Roatan just off the eastern coast of Honduras. We have built a microindustry here called Roatan Glass Art. October of this year will mark two years since they started. The decision was made early on to make this micro for women only since there were so many women raising children on their own. A group of six women have learned the art of glass fusing to make jewelry, suncatchers, mobiles, and more. We are selling these items at the church, in an Etsy store, and several stores around the island.
