Why Honduras?

Jarrod obtained degrees in Spanish and International Business in 2000.  His prior travels included Spain and Argentina, where he spent a semester studying at the University of Buenos Aires.  When his church approached him to accompany the mission team as a translator to Honduras, he agreed.  This introduction resulted in a permanent passion for the country and the people of Honduras.  Less than a year after this trip, Jarrod quit his job and moved to Honduras to collaborate with a local preacher.  Very soon, he met Allison and together they founded Mission Lazarus and made their home in southern Honduras.
