In 2008, many of you were gracious to support me prayerfully and financially on my last trip to Honduras. In fact, I was able to make 2 trips! The follow up trip occurred in October. 4 of us drove a 4×4 truck from Frisco, TX to Honduras. Crazy right? (Video and More) It was such an amazing experience and my hearts desire for this country grew. In fact, it was in the shadow of a job loss that I took this trip. I took it in faith that the Lord would provide outside of raising separate support. And He was faithful to do so!
I have recently been asked to join a team of people participating in a weeklong mission trip to Honduras. There are two trips this year that focus on the children of Honduras by providing Vacation Bible School and Sports Camps. During both trips, we will also help construct Promise Home Orphanage, being built over the next few years. The first trip arrives July 18th the second trip arrives July 25th.
Our group is sponsored by North Texas Missions (NTM), which is a non-profit, 501(c)3 Christian organization from Frisco, Texas. North Texas Missions has been leading mission trips to Central America since 2005 and in 2006 embarked on the mission to build Promise Home Orphanage in Honduras. More info can be found at www.northtexasmissions.org
While in Honduras, we will stay at a local orphanage serving as our base camp for the week. Each day we will break into teams and go to a local village. One team will conduct a full Vacation Bible School during the morning at a local school, and then a conduct a Sports Camp in the afternoon. Through this, we will have the opportunity to impact the lives of thousands of children throughout the week. The second team will spend the day at Promise Home Orphanage working on various construction projects as they prepare to Â begin receiving hundreds of abused and abandoned children. Additionally, we will also go into the villages to distribute rice and beans as a way of showing our support for the community and looking for opportunities to share God’s love. The true purpose of this trip is to meet the community’s physical and spiritual needs by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the Vacation Bible School, Sports Camps, and evangelism teams we will be providing short messages to everyone about how God loves each one of us.
