Honduras Mission Trip: May 30- June 7
Trinity UMC is returning to Honduras – this time to Heart to Heart Children’s Village. We hope to be taking a team of 7 for 9 days. So far 4 folks have committed to this adventure of faith in action. Are you ready to join up?
Heart to Heart Children’s’ Village is home to about 90 children and youth – ages 2-20. The home is located in Tegucigalpita, a small community about 2 hours west 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.
This mission trip to Honduras could really change your life. It will be a wonderful, rewarding experience that will seriously impact your faith journey. We will work with and teach children and youth. We will be in daily and continuous fellowship with the children, youth and the teachers. We will 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.
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 which is modest but very safe. Our team will travel about 20 minutes each day to Cortes or to Tegucigalpita in a “mission van.” We will start each day with devotionals, eat typical Honduran foods and have many wonderful cross cultural experiences.
Our mission trip will begin on Friday morning, May 30, as we depart to San Pedro Sula via Miami We will be in Cortes by about 1 p.m. We will return late on Saturday, June 7.
Estimated costs for the Mission Trip are about $1100 plus airfare (about $500). This includes a donation to the Ministry for a team project or other ministry need. Some financial support from Trinity may be available. A deposit of $200 is necessary to reserve your participation – which is needed soon. We will book our airline tickets in early April.
There are some immunizations recommended which will need to be obtained by late April. No visas are needed but a valid passport with a 6 month post return expiration date is required.
