Hello friends! As the new year has begun, I’ve been looking back and reflecting on all that God has done in my life the last few years. As I began my journey in Honduras in 2012, I never imagined that I would still be here six years later! I remember coming as a newly graduated nurse, having only worked in the states for 3.5 months, with so much eagerness to learn all about being a “jungle nurse.” I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to learn from so many amazing people during my time here. I’ve learned many life lessons, had incredible experiences and I’ve grown as a person and in Christ.
I have noticed that I have done a TERRIBLE job at keeping my blog updated. It’s always much easier to quickly post a picture to Facebook or Instagram (everyone is on social media, right?), but I realize the importance of writing about my time here so that I don’t forget the details. My new goal is to write a blog once a month, so stay with me as I continue posting about my jungle adventures.
Each year brings more growth and more responsibilities around the ministry. This year I will be taking a new step in this journey by purchasing a vehicle in Honduras! As most of you know, we live about an hour and a half from the nearest city on a winding, bumpy dirt road and for the last 6 years I have been dependent on others, or the unpredictable public transportation, to make it into the city for groceries and to run errands. By purchasing a vehicle I will be more independent in those areas, and I will be available to help the ministry by driving interns to buy groceries, transporting teams to various villages and by picking up visitors from our nearby airport when needed.
I’m excited about this next step, but I need your help to make it happen!!! My goal is to raise $10,000 within the next few months so that when I find the perfect truck, I will be able to purchase it. If you feel led to give, you can send a check to Healing Hands Global and your donation will be tax deductible. I will be searching for a gently used truck or SUV. Thank you for your continued prayers and support as I live out God’s calling here in Honduras.
If you would like to make a donation to help me purchase a vehicle, please mail a check to:
Healing Hands Global, Inc.
P.O. Box 86680
Baton Rouge, LA 70879
Send your check payable to: Healing Hands Global with “vehicle for Tabitha Hiers” written in the memo line or a note included with the check saying that the donation is for a vehicle for me.
Again, thank you for your love and support! I couldn’t do this without you.
