   Each year Mission Honduras LeMars purchases medicine to be used by the Gehlen Catholic Mission Honduras January medical team.  According to Richard Seivert, director of Mission Honduras, the medical teams from Gehlen pay for their entire trip and much of the medicines used. Each year, however, the amount of medicines received varies from what is necessary. The board of directors of Mission Honduras LeMars has graciously voted to purchase whatever is necessary when what the doctors have ordered falls short.
