All aspects of day-to-day life on the Micah House property revolve around our group home for boys previously connected to the streets of Tegucigalpa. Here we are like a family and focus on connection and healing. The staff members and boys alike have daily responsibilities that keep the home running.
The Micah House contains five bedrooms for the boys and one for a nighttime caregiver, eight offices for running the different aspects of our ministry, a computer/TV room, a formal living room, a game room, a kitchen, a dining room, a laundry room, a small store where the boys can spend their allowances, a few classrooms and an upstairs terrace. Also on the property we have five cabins. Missionaries live in two, two are used for visitors, and the fifth has classrooms for our homeschooling program. The property also features two soccer fields, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, and a small vegetable garden. With ample spaces to study, meet, and play, our home is also a place for connection, healing, worship and reflection. We begin each morning before classes with a Bible study and prayer time. Often, we meet with the boys in the evenings for times of reflection, conflict-resolution, and sharing.
The Micah Project home has developed a “personality” of its own. The young men take pride in decorating their bedrooms to their tastes, and they rearrange them constantly. Our classrooms have filled up with projects and posters, and throughout the house, the walls are filled with artwork from our painting class!
We strive to maintain this home as a safe place both, physically and emotionally, for the boys to grow and mature. It is here that they are truly learning about the joys and challenges of what it takes to be a dynamic and growing family.
In the Micah House, each day is full of learning, playing, sleeping, eating, and just a little bit of joyful chaos!
