This is enough room for a fam- ily of six to eight! The cooking is done outside under a porch or lean-to and most families share a toilet and bath area," he said. "There is a mar- velous group of missionaries living there that we support. Most of the time, this project is started before we arrive. We supply the funds to buy the building materials. The blocks are put up and cured so we can build the roof, doors, and win- dow shutters. All built at the site. Nothing is pre- made. We mix and pour a concrete floor. Some even get a crude bathroom." Any of the newer buildings are built from ce- ment because of problem termites and the much of the northern end of the country was destroyed in 1998 during Hurricane Mitch. But the roofs are made from wood and tin, which need re- placing often. "Every year we select a person we don't know and replace their roof. Usually it is in a very poor area where 'voodoo' is common. We certainly get a mixture of emotions from the community but in general, it improves their feeling of hope for a better day to come," Van Dam said. The mission trip offers the people a number of oppommities for better days. In one instance Van Dam explained that by the age of 12 most Hondurans have no more opportunity for school. It is very common for girls to have a child by the age of 14 and by 20 they have 3 or 4 kids and no husband to support the family Maria, the wife of a pastor supported by this Honduras mission, and her husband have sev- eral churches in the city and in the mountains and work mainly with the native Indians of the region. Twenty years ago she met a young woman crying in a park because all she could do to support her family was prostitution. Maria, who Van Dam said is an excellent seamstress, brought in to her home to teach this girl how to sew. "To us 'sweatshops' are an ugly concept," he said. "To young Honduran women, they are a source of independence. Conditions may be tough but they get a salary, free daycare and some health insurance." Maria now trains eightto 12 young women a year from the mountains and rural villages. They school lasts nine months. During that time they get training and materials, they are billeted out to their congregation, and are sent back to their home with a small sewing machine like the one below or they get help to find a job in the city. To support one of these girls it costs about $90/month. "I see where the money goes and I am im- pressed with how much we get out of it," he said that almost nothing goes to overhead costs and none for administration because it is all volun- teer. He said that in many cases, like school back- packs, eyeglasses and toys he buys items online at the best prices and in Honduras they bring cash for building supplies. Van Dam added that he also gives money directly to Mafia so I know" she has it to use at her sewing school. "There is too much to do there, but we come to bring some hope, support, and encourage- ment to the Christian network working there," Van Dam said. MILLER RUNS FROM people that have not taken place. The challenges of rural life demand bold leadership. As a Senator, I understand the issues we face here in Northeastern North Dakota. My experience as a young farmer en- lightens me to our daily tasks to succeed here. I have been a voice for new ideas and have led on gov- emrnent reform; I will continue to be that voice and that leader," Miller said. Miller is seeking his second term of office. He currently is vice- chairman of the Senate Finance and Taxation committee and a member of the Agriculture committee. He PAGE 1 has worked on Energy Develop- ment and Transmission, Human Services, Information Technology, and Taxation interim committees. PR Square will donate $2 to the Pa River of a Pizza BLOOD DRIVE FROM PAGE 1 "We asked a donor, a young man, why he gives so consistently three or four times a year," said Ellefson. "He said, "It feels so good to save someone's life. Why would you do it just once?" It's that kind of persistent, fre- quent giving that assures a safe, de- pendable blood supply every day. Ellefson said many of the real- life donors featured in the new campaign began donating because they knew of someone who needed blood. They continue to donate be- cause it makes them feel terrific- heroic, even. To encourage the habit of blood donation, united Blood Services has expanded its reward program. Donors can earn points for donat- ing frequently and staying in- volved year after year. The points are redeemable for movie and restaurant gift certificates, t-shirts and other prizes. The DECCA Club will be spon- soring the next community blood drive on Feb. 2 from 12:30-5:30. Potential donors can make an ap- pointment to give blood by calling Marion Onstad at 284-6472 or Pud Thompson at 284-6263. The drive will be held at the Park River Le- gion Club. Volunteer blood donors must be 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Ad- ditional height/weight require- ments apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.
