TTTFMicro.com lives! We finally got all the connections made and (most of) the bugs worked out. There are still some cosmetic things we need to correct but it works! Payment processing is through a company call Stripe. They are a very safe and reliable credit card processor.
All of the donations we are taking now are specifically for the soup kitchen we are spinning up. You can donate by credit card on the site or send a check made out to “Teach Them To Fish” to:
Trinity Episcopal Church/Teach Them to Fish
509 W. Pine St.
Hattiesburg, MS 39401
All donations are tax deductable.
Next we are going to add PayPal for those familiar with it and after that a recurring donation option.
We are also going to add a ‘Projects’ option to the menu for those wanting to form a team to come down to help the people on the island or mainland Honduras. It will list the suggested number of team members, location, type, duration, and estimated cost. We will coordinate with you and your team to get you here, start you on your project, and get you home safely. We have been working successfully with the Diocese of Honduras for many years and would love to help you make the connection.
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.
