Ville Platte Christian Missions, under the direction of Winston Lafleur (with his daughter Tiffany Fontenot), will be making a trip to Honduras this summer, from July 13-20. The cost of going on the mission is $1,200. This includes all transportation (including airfare), room, and board.
Anyone who is interested in going on mission should contact Winston as soon as possible (337-230-5811).
The mission group will perform work, like repairing schools or a water softening project, while in Honduras. It will fly to the capital of Tegucigalpa, and travel by bus to Juticalpa, the area where the mission work is to be done.
If you can’t make it to Honduras, but would like to help, Ville Platte Christian Missions is planning a Benefit Dance & Supper on May 5 at the Civic Center. If you want to help with the benefit, contact Winston.
Winston’s missionary activity started back in the mid-2000s, when Fr. Randy Moreau led a group of parishioners on mission to Mexico. Winston also went on mission in 2009, and every year since 2011. He – and other Ville Plattians – normally went with a group organized through St. John the Evangelist parish in Prairieville, La. However, there is enough Ville Platte interest to have our own group.
If you are interested in going, give Winston a call as soon as possible.
