First Responder Training in Honduras was a Success

First Responder Training in Honduras was a Success

In 2015, Connect Global launched an initiative in Honduras we call Connected Community. As a part of our ongoing support and investment into the Community of La Ceiba, Honduras our team will be providing training for the members of the local police department. The department leadership has asked for a specialized training for first responders to be able to learn life-saving techniques in order to mitigate the loss of life in the field.

Little Lambs Refuge in La Masica is a wonderful ministry of Proyecto Alcance founded by David and Dialis Romero. They have cared for and supported girls of all ages in a very poor area of Honduras for 18 years.  Connect Global was introduced to this ministry in 2015 while Danielle, Saige, and myself lived in La Ceiba.

Connect Global is taking time to honor and celebrate moms this month. We asked our moms (and several other moms we know) a few Questions to get a conversation started about what is important in life and what moms want to see in the world for themselves, and most importantly for their children. Hope you enjoy and please take a minute to ask your mom questions like these from time to time, you may be delightfully surprised by what you learn your mom!

1. Describe a time in your life you really needed someone and they came through for you? 

In my third year of college, which also happened to be my senior year of college, I was lost, on the wrong path, hanging out with the wrong people, and doing the wrong things. I didn’t think I needed anyone but looking back, I desperately needed someone to help open my eyes and pull me out of the mess I was in. My older brother, Kris, came through for me then. He loved me through it, spoke the truth I needed to hear, and helped point me in the right direction. Because of his courage to step up and say something, I was able to get on the path I was supposed to be on all along.

2. Who is a woman in your life that has been especially influential in your life? 

As cliche as it sounds, my mom. She has always been there, whether it was with the perfect advice at just the right time, offering her ears to just listen and a shoulder to cry on, and always giving more than I deserve. She’s taught me things as simple as how to cook and clean for my household, all the way to how family should love and care. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her constant love, support, teaching, and guiding hand.

3. What books by female authors have you read, and what books did you find impactful? 

Some of my favorites by female authors have been “You are a Badass” and “You are a Badass at Making Money” by Jen Sincero, “Brunette Ambition” by Lea Michele, “Staying Stylish” by Candace Bure, and “The Battlefield of the Mind” by Joyce Meyer. I loved all of these for different reasons. There was things I could learn about business, everyday, and my walk with God. But I do remember after reading “Brunette Ambition” being fired up to live my best life. Eat healthy, stay active, chase after my dreams like never before. Something about hearing Lea’s story ignited a fire to go after mine. 
(Could always abbreviate to BA for the first two)

4. WHERE DO YOU DRAW ENCOURAGEMENT FROM? 

A few places. First and foremost from God. Then from my husband and daughter, and finally community of people around me. I’m so thankful for my people and who I get to do life with.

5. WHAT PROJECT, HOBBY, OR MISSION ARE YOU ESPECIALLY EXCITED ABOUT OR INVOLVED IN RIGHT NOW? 

Our next big project is transforming our guest bedroom into a nursery next month for our baby boy who is due this July! We are excited to welcome another boy into the family and watch our daughter, Adelaide, be a big older sister. So that’s definitely taking up a lot of our focus and excitement right now!

6. WHAT DOES THE WORLD NEED MORE OF RIGHT NOW? 

Love. Definitely love. The real and true love. Not the love that takes advantage, manipulates, or is based on conditions. But the love that says, “I will be there for you no matter what you do or say, today, tomorrow, next year.” That patient, kind, never failing love.

7. WHAT DO YOU WANT MOST FOR YOUR CHILDREN? 

For them to go after their dreams with all they have and not stop until they achieve them. And then make new ones and achieve those too. I want them to know that the old, traditional ways are being redefined and they can truly do anything.

8. NAME SOMETHING YOU BOUGHT FOR YOURSELF THAT YOU LOVE.

I bought myself bowls and spoons made from real coconuts that I’m obsessed with. I’m a foodie so I put smoothies, salads, you name it, in them and always take pictures of my creations. The plus side is they are eco-friendly and beautiful. (Go check out Coconut Bowls if you want to see for yourself!)

9. NAME 2 THINGS YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT MONEY COULDN’T BUY AND WHY THEY MEAN SO MUCH TO YOU.

Family and community. With these two aspects in my life, I know I will never have to face anything alone, I always have someone I can turn to, and I will never be in need. In today’s world, families are falling apart more than ever and being able to turn to mine (husband, parents, cousins, aunts, etc) daily gives me hope and strength. I also think everyone should have some sort of community. A tribe of people who they do life with. Sometimes it changes, but the depth of those relationships are always so vital in different seasons. I have close friends that I can ask for anything and they would be there, and that’s huge.

my encouragement comes from my family, my God-fearing friends, and daily reminding myself who I am in Christ...when the wheels fall off, a brownie helps :)

Our business venture occupies most of our time. But I do enjoy volunteering at the school, and we are prayerfully considering where to serve next.

Danielle Mendoza

Danielle is the mom of one daughter, Saige, and is married to Javier Mendoza. 


1. Describe a time in your life you really needed someone and they came through for you? 

I do not know if that time in my life has ended but my husband has been with me through all of the ups and downs of life. His love has made it possible for me to push through in the really hard times.

2. Who is a woman in your life that has been especially influential in your life? 

I think women, in general, are very inspirational, so much is excepted of us and somehow we manage to do it in heels! 

My mom is inspirational because even when there were so many times where I know she wanted to completely give up she chose not to for us. Life could have been very different for me and my siblings if she did not put her feelings to the side.

3. What books by female authors have you read, and what books did you find impactful? 

I think it’s cute that you think mothers have time to read 😊

4. WHERE DO YOU DRAW ENCOURAGEMENT FROM? 

From people in our lives who have the same vision and passion, we do for mission work.

5. WHAT PROJECT, HOBBY, OR MISSION ARE YOU ESPECIALLY EXCITED ABOUT OR INVOLVED IN RIGHT NOW? 

Connect Global is one that I’m especially excited about because I personally know the literal blood, sweat and tears it took to make it what it is today. All for the purpose of having a mission organization that creates solutions to solvable problems around the world. When the lights go on in someone’s head and they realize their gifts and talents can have an immeasurable impact on others that gets me excited!

6. WHAT DOES THE WORLD NEED MORE OF RIGHT NOW? 

The world needs more Peace and more Love. Sadly so many people due to their own insecurities do not love themselves which in turn makes it impossible for them to genuinely love someone else. Once we realize that humanity at large has the same dreams, desires, and aspirations I think violence, negativity, and hatred for other people, races or religions will decrease. That is my hope! 
 

7. WHAT DO YOU WANT MOST FOR YOUR CHILDREN? 

I want my daughter to be secure in who she is, to feel safe physically and emotionally and to always hold the Joy for life that she has right now at the age of 8.

8. NAME SOMETHING YOU BOUGHT FOR YOURSELF THAT YOU LOVE.

We bought a home last August after 11 years of marriage and though we have made every house our home this one is extra special.

9. NAME 2 THINGS YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT MONEY COULDN’T BUY AND WHY THEY MEAN SO MUCH TO YOU.

My husband and my daughter, they are the ones who can make any bad day a happy one, any sad situation better and the two people I wish I could spend every waking moment with! Their humor, their love, their acceptance and their kindness is something I know I am so blessed to have and I wouldn’t want to go through life without them
