Leonard and Marie Jones
17 years-ago Leonard and Marie Jones traveled to Honduras on a mission trip. They saw the poverty and despair that was widespread in Honduras and they knew God would one day call them back. Eight years have past since they packed their bags and drove with their family from Burleson, Texas to Honduras. They are now permanently residing in La Ceiba, where they have opened a children’s home, and are known as “Papa & Mama”.
Leonard and Marie also run an outreach program called Casa Compassion. This ministry to young, unwed mothers was birthed out of necessity. In four years, nearly 30 girls have come through their home seeking hope and a place of refuge. Many have come impregnated through rape, and some have arrived as young as 12 years-old. They have seen many beautiful children brought into this world, and they have seen dignity and hope restored to many of these girls.
