Honduras Mission Miracles: Saint Mark and other churches from the North Georgia North Coast Honduras Methodist Mission, have been working in El Pino, Honduras for the last 5 years, moving impoverished families into new homes. When completed, our "Rent-to Own" program will have placed 17 families with new homes in 2 new communities. A committee composed of civic leaders and Methodist church leaders from El Pino selects each family based on need and ability to pay a small rent. Families considered currently live in very primitive mud and stick style constructed homes. Selected families choose between 2 models of new homes. The monthly rent on the small model is 350L (about $30) and 600L ($55) on the large model. Each home is made of poured concrete and rebar with a metal roof. The small plan is 400 square feet and the large plan is 480 square feet. Covenants covering details such as room additions, number of animals such as chickens and dogs, and the number of people allowed to live on the property are part of the contract. After 10 years the house is deeded to the family who will have paid about 70% of the construction cost. Saint Mark has been chosen to build the last home in El Pino and next year will take this very successful program to La Ceiba or Roatan.
