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.
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.
