Grace Locke participated in a mission trip to Honduras through St. James's Episcopal Church. Her volunteer work involved working with girls at the Ministerios Nuestras Pequenas Rosas, a home for girls who were victims of abject poverty, abandonment, or abuse. Grace wrote that she wanted to volunteer for this opportunity because she "loves to speak Spanish, and wanted to experience Latin American culture while still making a difference in someone's life." The Home is nestled in the impoverished city of San Pedro Sula (often called "the murder capital of the world.") On the drive from the airport, Grace witnessed extreme poverty -- "we passed families living under scraps of metal on the side of the road, children holding out their hands for food, and men in camo with machine guns." No doubt this was both a rewarding and challenging volunteer activity, Grace -- congrats for making a difference in the lives of some very needy young girls.
