Richt Blog: Updates From Honduras

Day 1

By Mark Richt, as told to Ray Goodrich

As an SEC football coach, my days are dedicated to the relentless pursuit of excellence on the football field. But my days are also dedicated to my Christian faith, and the biblical principles on which it’s built. One of those principles is treating your neighbor as you would yourself – which is why my wife Katharyn and I are in the Central American country of Honduras this week. We are here with World Vision, a humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide – and we’re here, quite simply, to see how we can help.

Our time here will be spent visiting mostly rural communities, observing the work World Vision is doing in this impoverished nation. As citizens of an affluent country like the United States, it can be easy to overlook places in the world where every day people are just trying to find the basic necessities of life -- safe water to drink, food to put on their table, clothes for their children.

One of the great things about being in the SEC is the opportunity we have as coaches to draw attention to the needs of others, and to help worthy causes. With today’s technology creating a truly global community, everyone in the world can be considered our neighbors. And many of them are in need. Hopefully this week will present opportunities to learn more about how to help those neighbors.
