At Cynthia Welch Designs we believe in giving back our community. Sometimes the community is not in our local community but one where others can go for us. They are our hands and feet to go where we cannot go. For us, this is where our friends Eric & Christy Duplantis come in. They are both from the community where we live, Houma, but they have gone where we personally cannot go. Eric and Christy are serving as full-time missionaries in Honduras through Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International. Eric is a retired public school teacher and Christy is a registered nurse. We first met them at our church, First Baptist Church of Houma, when they were preparing to go to the mission field. We have been blessed to spend one on one time with them as a couple and with their beautiful children.
