In 2010, Alex and Laura moved from Dallas, Texas to Puerto Lempira, Honduras to live life with the Miskito people of the La Mosquitia region. God began to place the vision of Instituto Vida Abundante on their hearts in 2011 and the rest is God’s work in action. The Waits have 5 children who serve alongside them, Aidan, Arlee, Adam, Aaron & Cumi Joy.
The Waits are faith-based missionaries which mean that they rely fully on God’s provision through churches and individuals to meet their monthly living expenses.
Donations earmarked for the Waits family are tax-deductible through Reach Out Honduras and will be used to provide support directly to Alex & Laura. Any extra support raised will go toward the adoption of Cumi Joy, whose birth mother died in 2012 and birth father is unable to care for her.
