What’s the trip all about?
Our HS ministry has been partnering with MDM Honduras (Ministries of Divine Mercy) to develop and empower a community outside of the capital city called Rezisapa. The areas we’ve been focusing on have been education, health and economic development.
For 2019 our work will consist of 3 major components: House/building projects, Prayer/Outreach, and VBS/Education activities.
House/Building Projects: Rezisapa is a low-income rural area where homes are typically made of unsealed adobe brick on bare ground. Our team will pour in concrete floors and seal homes with a limestone-based paint that both seals the home and acts as an anti-bacterial barrier. For 2019: We’ll also be building 1 complete wood home for a family selected by the community
VBS/Education: We will have the opportunity to share the gospel through teaching and crafts at the school in Rezisapa and MDM in San Matias. For 2019: We’ll also be doing a basic english camp in Rezisapa
Prayer/Outreach: We break up into groups of 4-5 people and are led by our translator to the homes of preselected families to bring them a gift basket and offer prayer.
This is an amazing opportunity for students to get out of their comfort zone, use there gifts, and learn from another culture. Our goal is to have each student be used and impacted by God and to realize their position as missionaries not only in Honduras, but in this world.
