Part of PLA’s vision is to continue to develop service projects, both locally and abroad. The Good Shepard Christian Academy (GSCA) and Good Shepard Children’s Home (GSCH) is located in Zambrano, Honduras, and we have the opportunity to serve the GSCH and GSCA through a yearly mission trip in the summer, correspondence throughout the year and intentional prayer.
The GSCH serves as a full-tie ministry to the abused and abandoned children of Hondruas, Currently, more than 100 children reside at the Children’s Home where they receive the basic necessities of life-food, clothing, shelter, education, and lots of love!
The school is located on the grounds of Good Shepherd Children’s Home and serves more than 160 students. The schoold is dedicated to providing a high quality, bilingual education that is rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and designed to prepare students for a bright and successful future. GSCA believe that education is the best long-term solution for overcoming poverty.
Mrs. Danielle Taylor, a PLA K-2 teacher who attended our mission trip in summer 2015, will be serving with her husband, Kyle, at the Good Sheperd’s Children Home in the 2016 school year.
