Brielle Antesberger (‘20) fell in love with the children at El Hogar de Ninos Emmanuel, a Christian home for homeless, abused, and severely neglected children, when she traveled this past summer to volunteer. In January, Brielle returned to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, with her mom and dad for her third trip. During their week’s stay, they prepared backpacks with school supplies for the kids to begin their school year, cleaned, and organized storage closets. They also visited a local school to distribute Tom shoes to the students. Building relationships with the kids was Brielle’s favorite part of the mission trip: “I enjoyed getting to know the kids better and getting to play games with them. Another thing I
enjoyed was spending a day with the children at the zoo.”
Brielle’s family had the privilege of leading devotions with the teenagers each night. “It was really great to be able to have good conversations and understand better what people were saying. I am so grateful that Mrs. Rhodes has spent so much time investing in me and teaching me the Spanish language. It is making a tremendous difference in my ministry,” Brielle shared.
