El Hogar News
El Hogar, the Episcopal orphanage and school in Honduras which is our special International Outreach at Christ Church, is undergoing some major changes which will save money in the long run and make El Hogar more sustainable for the future. Read about these changes here.
Christ Church's Sponsored Child: Kimberly
The church is now sponsoring Amy Kimberly Ortez (she likes to be called Kimberly) who is in second grade. Kimberly likes to draw. She is on the honor roll. Her GPA is 97%. She is improving a lot and her adaptation is really good. When she first arrived at El Hogar, she hadn’t had any instruction and her vocabulary was delayed, but now Kimberly is like a new girl. Her favorite classes are Spanish and Math. She is a leader among her classmates. In the classroom, she is absolutely great. She can write and read well. Kimberly's dream is to become a teacher. She was baptized on July 31. (Her Progress Report is posted on the Mission Bulletin Board in the Parish Hall.)
