Swim Mission Honduras

March 2019

Our Team: 
Kim Shults, Alissa Magrum, Dr. Renee Lockey, Lynn Magrum, Ella and Hanna
Teaching Swimming in Honduras Team

In February 2018, Kim Shults from Face in Water and Alissa Magrum from Colin’s Hope went to The Cornerstone Foundation in Honduras with Dr. Renee Lockey. While Renee delivered babies and saved lives at Loma de Luz Hospital, Kim and Alissa were busy at El Camino bi-lingual School delivering Colin’s Hope Water Safety Lessons , teaching swimming in the ocean all day and educating the missionary families in the evenings with Not One More Drowning conversations with the adults and teens and Learn to Swim with Lou!  readings and activities with the children. The beauty and growth and life they experienced after a week at The Cornerstone Foundation  was overwhelming to say the least. They returned in March 2019 with an even bigger support team including Alissa’s mom, daughter (13) and step-daughter (14). What a way to spend spring break!

destination for 2020

Looking for a New Swim Mission Destination for 2020!

We are currently looking for a new Swim Mission destination for 2020! We know the universe will send us somewhere, but we don’t know where quite yet. We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.

Holiday Fundraiser 2018

THANK YOU to everyone that supported our Honduras Holiday Fundraiser! We raised almost $2000 to provide all 32 children at the Sanctuary House the cultural Christmas gift of a new church outfit. Alissa shopped for pretty dresses, fancy shoes and button-down shirts and is putting them on a shipping container to Honduras to ensure every child gets this tradition met this holiday season.

GENERAL DONATION

We will be headed to a new destination in 2020. Every donation helps make the mission a success!
