Trinity UMC is returning to Honduras on September 26. We are planning to take a team of 10 to Heart to Heart for 10 days. So far 6 folks have committed to this adventure of faith in action. Are you ready to join up?
Heart to Heart Children’s’ Village (H2H) is home to about 90 children and youth – ages 2-20. The home is located in Tegucigalpita, a small community about 2 hours north of San Pedro Sula. The H2H ministry includes a bilingual school, church and medical clinic in the town of Puerto Cortes. The children are from the streets or broken homes. They are raised in a loving Christian family environment.
- work with and teach children and youth,
- be in daily and continuous fellowship with the kids, youth and the teachers,
- work on a light construction project at the Children’s Village.
Most importantly we will show God’s love to those we seek to serve and in that process we will be blessed in return.
This team will be led in country by Gary and Sylvia Thacker – strong Christians and experienced missionaries in Central America who we have been in service with many times.
Honduras has some extreme challenges as a nation, including violence but most of that is in the major metropolitan areas. We have been to Honduras many times in the last several years. We have never had an incident and we feel safe. The planning and logistics in country are well organized.
We will stay in a small comfortable hotel in Omoa and enjoy daily devotionals on a veranda overlooking the Omoa Bay. The hotel is modest but very safe and the food is wonderful.
Our team will travel about 20 minutes each day to Cortes, where the school, medical clinic and church is located or to Tegucigalpita about 30 minutes away where the Children’s Village is located.
Thursday morning, September 26: Depart to San Pedro Sula via Miami
Saturday afternoon, October 5: Return via Miami
