New school year, 2014, back pack feeding program at Samuel Raymond Christian School

Its almost time for the 2014 school year to begin at SRCS, and we are getting ready.  We have ordered the new back packs, and are getting excited about this new school year. Their are 33 children enrolled, and we are looking forward to this opportunity to provide these children and their families with food to fill their back packs, and no telling what else God may provide for them!  We also will be providing a warm meal for them once a week.  

If anyone would like to help with this program, please let us know, you can email me at The cost is approximately  $5.00, per back pack, each week. That consists of non perishable food items such as, rice, beans, flour, cornmeal, cooking oil, and other things, sometimes, pasta, with tomato sauce, boxes of mac n cheese, oatmeal, among other things. We also try to add items such at tooth paste, deodorant, and soap as well.
We try to mix it up every week.

As you all probably know by now, we have taken in a baby girl, her name is Carly.  She came to live with us when she was 8 months, and is now 12 months old.  She is from Tegucigalpa.  Her mom is Cindy, and she is 18 yrs old.  Cindy has spent most of her life in and out of childrens homes, and bouncung around from one place to the other, sometimes living on the street, not having a stable home life. Cindy's mom was a prostitute, and so Cindy didn't grow up in the home with her.  After having Carly, Cindy did what she knew, going from one place to the other, sometimes living on the street, staying wherever she could.  Cindy has been on drugs, and no telling what else.  She did decide though, that she wanted to give her baby a better chance at having a good life, then she had growing up.

Ernie and I, since we have been living in Honduras, have opened up our home to be a place for babies in need of rescuing, and that need to be in a safe place, and also for us to be a transition home for babies that are in the adoption process.  So when we got the call to take Carly, of course we said yes!  So we instantly became Carly's foster family.  It's one of those things where you have no idea how long the child will be with you, could be 2 days, 2 months, 2 years, or forever, we just want to be open to whatever God has for us!

Carly has now been with us for about 4 months, and she has adapted quite well to our family.  Originally the talk was that Cindy wanted her baby to be adopted by a good, Christian family, and so we said we would keep Carly during the adoption process.  Well, Cindy has decided that she does love her baby, and she doesn't want to give her up, so she is now in re hab, and getting her life together.  She is finished with her program in June, but asking for us to keep Carly until October.  We are all about God's restoration, and reunification of the family, so our prayer is that this family can be restored, and that Cindy can get her life in order so she and her baby daughter can be a family.  We know God is in control of this situation, and we pray that His will is done!

Back Pack Program at Samuel Raymond Christian School

It’s Tuesday afternoon and after working hard for half the day, it’s time for the students of Samuel Raymond Christian School to take a break – to burn off some energy playing “Red Light, Green Light” and to see what lunch or snack their moms have sent them that day. Each child pulls out something specially made for him – rice and beans; juice; raisins; fresh bread.

It wasn’t so long ago that many of the SRCA children didn’t have a surprise to pull out of their lunch sacks. Low season on the island means money is tight and there often isn’t enough food for three meals a day. Lunch is usually skipped. And multiplication or reading on an empty stomach isn’t the easiest thing to do.

When Ernie and Robyn Breaux, of ER International, saw this need, they eagerly stepped in, “We can help!” Every Monday, the Breaux’s load down their car with staples and non-perishable items and fill the children’s special backpacks. The boys and girls leave knowing they don’t have to go hungry that week. Their parents are grateful for the extra help and for the burden the weekly food distribution takes off their shoulders.

We feel incredibly blessed that ER International has chosen to be involved with SRCS in this way. Thank you, for seeing the very practical needs of kids like Joshua and Kadyann. Thank you for excitedly doing something about them! We are grateful for you!
