VOSH-Indiana Goes to Honduras

VOSH-Indiana made its first trip to Honduras in October 1978, working with the San Pedro Sula Lions Club. It was on this trip that we met Ruth Berkling, who still remains our primary contact for our missions to Honduras. In the early years, there would be around 20 people on the missions. Today the group has grown to more than 80 people. VOSH Indiana continues to go to Honduras. Forty plus missions have been made.
