Mission Trips

Our Little Roses, Honduras

St. George's makes two annual trips to Our Little Roses (OLR): one in February for adults, and one in June for adults and youth. The mission trips focus on building relationships, repairing OLR facilities, and sharing the gospel. You do not have to know Spanish to travel to OLR! Many St. George's members have not known Spanish and have still been able to serve the girls at OLR in meaningful ways.
