Meet the Team


Well, I guess it’s time to see some miracles.  We have a wonderful workforce of both volunteers and paid staff.  Even though we’ve been diligently working away, day after day, how it’s all coming together…well, it really can only be God.  Each week, each month, He seems to reveal more of His plan.  It’s pretty cool to say the least!

Meet Desmy Anderson.  Although she has no formal teacher education, she is a wonderful, patient, engaging, young woman.  The mentorship and english training she provides is the perfect fit for Mazapan.  We’d like to thank First Presbyterian Church of Durango for providing us with the funds specifically earmarked to hire a teacher.  It is a big blessing, especially for the additional children now receiving classes.


Meet Silvester.  Silvester is implementing a training program for young coaches to be leaders on the sports court.  His willingness to give of his time and talents is truly inspiring.  The young leaders are learning about teamwork, soccer drills, and above all, putting God first.  Good things are happening as the court is FINALLY coming into its own!

Meet Tiffany.  Tiffany comes to Mazapan 3 afternoons/wk, after  working at a private bilingual school in the morning teaching Pre-K, so she obviously has lots of patience and enjoys getting to know each student she works with.  She hails from Portland, Oregon and has a son in the 8th grade, who is also enjoying the “Honduran” experience.  We will miss Tiffany when she returns to the states in June!  She has brought some great new ideas to our center.  New teacher please apply!

Additionally, we’ve been blessed by another couple from Arizona, who have made the leap to move down here to do missionary work.  They will be helping out with a few different ministries in the area, of which Care4Communities is one.  We look forward to seeing how and where God leads them over the years to come.  Thank you Ron and Jamie and your team from Show Low, Arizona for helping us with the “girls group” and in putting in a new ceiling in our classroom.  Awesome!  Follow their journey:
