This past spring break, the School of Population Health, Nutrition & Wellness planned its annual Mission Trip. The destination was Roatan, Honduras, a beautiful island in South America. We had a group of 8 students who volunteered to spend their spring break ministering to the people in Roatan. Our students did a week of prayer in the church of Coxen Hole, Roatan, they also painted the cafeteria of the Adventist Highschool; did seminars on health, teen related problems, etc to the highshool students. The students did nutrition assessment of the elementary students. It was a short but rewarding experience that our students really enjoyed! We look forward to doing more mission work in different parts of the world in the near future!

Thanks to students, faculty, and people from the community who donated items and gave monitary gifts, we were able to take the children much need supplies, food, and clothing. This picture is just some of the things that we were able to get for them.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'
Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'
The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:35-40
