Más de 90 familias de la comunidad de El Tamarindo, Nacaome, Valle se benefician con proyecto de agua, que tiene como objetivo principal impactar directamente en las condiciones de saneamiento básico, higiene personal y seguridad alimentaria de estas familias.

Water Well Project in Honduras

El proyecto se llevó a cabo gracias al establecimiento de alianzas locales entre Fundación Agrolíbano, Connect Global, Maquinarias del Pacífico, los pobladores de El Tamarindo y el equipo de voluntariado ”Corazón de Melón” de Agrolíbano, quienes lideraron la ejecución del proyecto, que consistió en la perforación de un pozo e instalación de una bomba eléctrica para extracción de agua, bombeando 8 galones por minuto a un tanque de almacenamiento con capacidad de 10,000 mil litros y abasteciendo de forma gravitacional el sistema existente.


Con esta mejora al sistema, incrementa su capacidad en 480 galones por hora, con lo que se mejora el acceso de agua a muchas familias de la comunidad que carecían del servicio o les resultaba insuficiente.


Asimismo, el proceso es acompañado con el empoderamiento comunitario, en torno a la gestión del recurso agua desde una perspectiva administrativa, hidrosanitaria y ambiental para garantizar la sostenibilidad del mismo. La inversión total en esta mejora asciende a L 586,869.40, de los cuales Connect Global ha aportado el 37%, Maquinarias del Pacifico el 31%, la comunidad aportó el 16%, la Fundación Agrolíbano el 11% y el 5% por parte de Agropecuaria Montelíbano.


Jorge Amador National Director in Honduras

Jorge Amador National Director in Honduras

Jorge Amador, our friend, and partner for the past 13 years has become the National Director for Honduras with Connect Global, please join us in welcoming him to the team. 


Jorge Amador, National Director for Honduras

Our team met Jorge over 13 years ago in the airport in San Pedro Sula. Travis, Gina and I all attended our first mission trip together which was organized and led by Morning Star Church of Tampa Florida. We landed on a small runway at a small airport just outside the city. We did not know anyone, as this was our very first trip to Honduras. 

We only knew to look for a Honduran named Jorge. 

Jorge quickly found us and took care of everything. He helped us navigate the hectic airport. He helped us load all of our belongings, we overpacked much more heavily back then, but above all else he greeted us as if he had known us our whole lives. 

Jorge has never been overly formal, in fact, he has always had a very comfortable, and easy going demeanor with us, as if we were brothers with different mothers, but still having the same Father. He is one of our Heroes of the Faith

On our first trip, we experienced the Honduras country-side for well over 8 hours in an old yellow dog American made school bus. 

 
 
Jorge Amador National Director for Honduras

Our team and all of our supplies fit snugly, but efficiently. Barreling down the roads of Honduras towards a small town called Cusuna, we felt every curve, and bump while getting a first-hand description of everything having to do with this new place we would be serving for the last 13. 

Jorge has always been ready to serve in any capacity needed. His wisdom, charisma, and compassion make him an immediate friend to everyone he encounters. His loyalty make him a friend you want to keep.. 

We, here at Connect Global, have decided to bring Jorge on as National Director for Honduras.

Jorge is a valuable asset to our leadership in Honduras and has greatly augmented our efforts. He has supervised several projects such as our recently completed water well in El Tamarindo, and will be our first point of contact in our upcoming Maternity Home Project in La Ceiba .

Thank You, Jorge, for all of your hard work.

Hero of the Faith - Jorge Amador

Jorge Amador, our friend, and partner for the past 13 years has become the National Director for Honduras with Connect Global, please join us in welcoming him to the team


HERO OF THE FAITH - JORGE AMADOR

Jorge hosts teams of missionaries from the US into Honduras and takes them to Cusuna, La Ceiba, San Pedro Sula, Tegucigalpa and all points in between.  He leaves his family for up to two weeks at a time to make the seven-hour drive by bus.  He does this up to a dozen times a year.  This type of work makes it very difficult for him to find a regular job for income between these trips. 

He has suffered several terrible life tragedies and yet he continues to serve.  Even when he himself is in need of several basic items, on every call he speaks to me of someone else who is in need.  He wants us to buy food for her.  I want to buy food for him.  

I’ve known Jorge since 2004 and I’ve never seen him put himself before others.  I’ve yet to hear him request aid for himself at the expense of others.  He truly has the heart of a servant. 

Part of our trip next week will include blessing Jorge.  I’m sure we will visit the lady he has spoken to us about.  I’m sure we will bless him by buying her some food.  I also know we will financially, emotionally, and spiritually bless Jorge.  After all, he is my friend and a true Hero of the Faith. 

This year, (2017), we have brought Jorge on to our team at Connect Global as our National Director in Honduras. He is an amazing servant, always thinking of someone else and ready to serve at a moments notice. He has been a great asset to our organizationa dna great friend to each of us personlly.

Thank you and may God bless you as well as our new National Director in Honduras, Jorge Amador.

On our last trip to La Ceiba, we had the opportunity to share the great news of the fundraising goals met with the Hospital Administrator, Dr. Amador, and her staff.

Meeting with Leaders of Pastor's Association in La Ceiba

The Connect Global Team traveled to Honduras once again, in June of 2017. This trip had a couple of focus points, one of which was to connect with the leadership in the community of La Ceiba, Honduras. 


One focus for Connect Global in La Ceiba Honduras has been to deepen the relationships we have with the leadership in the community.

Part of this means to reach out to the Pastor's Association in La Ceiba. In June we sat down with the President and Vice President of the Association to discuss what plans we could partner on to reach out together and serve the city we all have been investing in over the years. 

The meeting was a great time and we made a deep level connection and reached a new understanding of the vision for La Ceiba.

In attendance: Edgardo Lianes - Pastor of The Church of the Nations, Ricardo Jimenez - President of the Pastor's Association, & Francisco Arrandas - Vice President of the Pastor's Association and Pastor of Kairos Church, along with Pastor Allan Lorenzana of CCI Church La Ceiba, Dr Mitch Arbelaez of Go To Nations, and Dr Johnny and Betty Moffitt of Worldwide Voice In the Wilderness.

Water Well in El Tamarindo Honduras

Water Well in El Tamarindo Honduras

Connect Global along with churches and individuals from the US, began a partnership with the Community Water Committee in El Tamarindo to build a water well.

We are Glad to report that the well has been dug, pipes have been laid, the pump is installed and there is water available to each home in the community. 


 

663 million people in the world live without clean water. *

That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep kids out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

 

Thank You for Your Support
