32-year-old Murphreesboro Local Vickie Miller found out about the Forgotten Children Ministries through a friend on Facebook.  The Forgotten Children Ministries' mission is "to rescue the forgotten and abandoned street children of Honduras."  According to The World Bank in 2013, 64.5% of Honduras' population lived in poverty.  Not only does the The Forgotten Children Ministries house homeless children, but they also minister to the local people.  Miller plans to work in Tegucigalpa, Honduras with the organization for one week during the Christmas break.

This was not the first time that Miller found a Christian-based, abroad organization online.  In 2009, she discovered the Network of International Christian Schools website.  Through this organization, Miller received a teaching job at the Highlands International School in La Paz, Bolivia.  Montana Byrd has more on this story and Miller's adventures below.
