SIMS spends Christmas in Honduras

Students for International Mission Service (SIMS) celebrated Christmas in Honduras. From December 15–22 they visited Valle de Angeles, an Adventist hospital, and from December 22–27 the team went to Pan American Health Services, an orphanage and nutrition rehabilitation clinic. There, they provided emotional support and basic child care. “It was Christmas so we focused on spending the holiday with them in a meaningful way,” says Martine Polycarpe, MPH, director of SIMS.
