In  June of 1999 Donn traveled to the city of Santo Cristobal with a missionary  team from the  East Naples United Methodist Church in Naples, FL. The Team consisted of members of the Church that annually made the trip to aid  the Homeless and Orphan Outreach organization located in Lake Placid, FL. They would be spending 7 days living within a boys orphanage helping the Rev. Eduvigis Diaz with repairs to the facilities under his control. Diaz new his calling was to create safe homes for the orphaned and abandoned children of his poor country. He maintains four separate facilities for the boys and girls.

These images document the Teams activities and interaction with the children at several of these locations.
