My Aunt and I visited SBLM on a recent trip to Roatan. We had so much fun with the kids and loved getting to know Banesa and Orsy. They are doing an amazing job with the children and it feels like one big, happy family. I can’t wait to go back and spend more time helping out. Such a wonderful work being done for these precious kids!

GREG & MICHELLE ~ DONORS
Thank you for all you do! Life has been a bit crazy as Greg and I have taken in three foster youth here in Texas. We are hoping to visit you in Roatan in October 2019 and want to show them your success story and let them meet others who are also separated from their families of origin.
PASTOR BOB ~ SUPPORTING CHURCH
Fabulous ministry. Wonderful leadership. A Great future.
CHAD ~ SHORT TERM MISSION
The kids at this orphanage impacted me more than I could have ever imagined last year, and Lord willing I hope to return the end of this year.
I am also beyond excited to have my twin sister joining me this year and for her to meet these kids!! The need is real, and our team will be once again pouring into the lives of both the orphanage staff and the children. We will be spending time with them, simply listening to their stories, preparing special meals, hosting various events and games etc.

BILLY ~ MISSION VOLUNTEER
I have been on a few missions trips to Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries and every time I see consistent love and devotion to Christ’s Ministry. Mr. Orsy and Ms. Banesa care genuinely for the children under their care and really provide for the spiritual as well as physical needs of those children. You can see they want to reach others for Christ. They really do follow the vision of Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries, reaching out as a beacon of light to Roatan, Honduras.
RENEE ~ DONOR
Awesome facility. I had the chance to visit here with a group from the cruise and I am so glad I did. These kids are so loved here and it shows. Thanks to the staff and my continued prayers for all of you.
KATRINA & BRIAN ~ CHILD SPONSORS
My family and I got to spend Christmas of 2016 with this amazing Godly family. After spending our first day there my then 9-year-old daughter said to me: Mommy, this isn’t an Orphanage, this is a home. She spoke such truth that day. This is home anchored in God’ love and Joy. His presence was felt the moment Orsy and Banesa picked us up to take us to this love filled home. They both are super parents to all of these children and make taking care of 20+ children, look easy. We pray God opens a door for us to return soon. We feel super blessed that God placed this home on our path.
ELIZABETH ~ CHILD SPONSOR
Amazing facility committed to doing God’s work. Our visit was inspirational. They not only care for the immediate needs of their children but encourage them to dream for the future.
VISITORS & VOLUNTEERS
If you find yourself on the Island of Roatan, Honduras, either while vacationing or off a cruise ship, we would love to have you stop by for a visit, meet our Honduran “house parents” Orsy and Banesa Cruz, see what we are doing and meet some of the kids.
Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries offers short-term mission opportunities. We refer to this experience as “transformational travel” because it results in transforming the lives of both participants and recipients. We have hosted many teams over the past years and consistently receive positive feedback on the experience.
Often we have individuals and families contact us with a desire to volunteer while vacationing on the Island of Roatan. This may be for a day, a few hours, or even a week. We appreciate the help and skills volunteers bring to our home, and we would like very much to help make your experience of Roatan special.
