The the team in Honduras
The Colby Family
The Colbys came to begin working with the ministry in the late 1990s through short term groups with FCO (Fellowship of Christian Optometrists) from Indiana University. They interned with the mission in 1999 for four months to help get the optometry work started, and moved here full time in 2000.
Valerie currently works in the clinic as part of the staff optometrist. Felipe is the mission's executive director. Cecilia and Soren were both born in Tegucigalpa, Soren even being born in the old clinic building.
The Mora Family
Oscar Mora works as the administrator for the Churches and farming arms of the mission, also helping oversee some of the construction, and helping host short term mission teams. Oscar is from Costa Rica, and came to Honduras in 1992 as one of the founding pastors of the Church next door to our campus in Tegucigalpa, where he still attends even though he quit pastor work there in 1999 to work full time with the mission.
