We are Orsy and Banesa Cruz. We are the Honduran Directors for Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries. Orsy grew up not far from the present site of the Greenfield Children’s Home in Sandy Bay. Banesa grew up on the mainland of Honduras and moved to Roatan following school for a position at a local bank. We have been married since 1999. We are fortunate to have two beautiful children, Orsy Jr., who is 16, and Sharon, who is 13. Now we all have a very big family!
We have been here since October 2008. Much has changed since then. We are responsible for the children’s lives. It is an awesome responsibility, but God answered our prayers telling us to take this ministry. It is exciting to look back and see how far the children have come in their development. We look forward to the day when a child will be able to leave the home and care for himself or herself, follow Jesus and be proud of the way they contribute to the community on Roatan.
