Honduras is a Central American country bordered by Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador. This country, previously a Spanish colony, has been independent since 1821. With a population of approximately eight million people, Hondurans have a rich cultural and ethnic heritage dating back to civilizations including the Mayan Empire. The capital city, Tegucigalpa, is the largest city with a population of over a million people. Honduras is currently the most impoverished country in Central America and lacks a great deal of vital resources needed to sustain families. They are estimated to be around 200,000 children who are orphaned due to poverty, disease, abuse and neglect, and abandonment.
The mission team to Honduras will serve with El Ayudante Ministry which is about 1.5 hours from Tegucigalpa. El Ayudante is committed to working with the surrounding community leaders to transform the community - practically speaking, that means teams will conduct such activities as Bible schools, school programs, installing water storage, latrines, and helping out with house repairs for families in the surrounding communities. We are working on an agenda that would allow the team to visit and collaborate with some of the orphanages that are in the area - doing special programs and work projects.
The trip will be led by America World's very own staff - Rob Henneberg. Rob currently works with our El Salvador adoption program and oversees the Welcoming Angels Program. He is fluent in Spanish and familiar with travel to Central & South America.
