Mission Opportunities - Honduras

The Kentucky Conference Youth and Young Adult Mission Trip is going back to Honduras in 2016. Conference youth and young adults, along with pastors, youth pastors, and adult volunteers will travel to Honduras to continue the work our conference has been doing there for the past five summers. High school students who have completed their freshman year and young adults are encouraged to go and share the love of Christ with the people of Honduras.  Those who have gone on this mission trip have fallen in love with the Honduran people of the Algalta Valley. Honduras Outreach Inc. (HOI), besides being a great host, has been doing significant work here since 1987. We have come to appreciate their “heart for God and hand to man” as they work alongside more than 200 villages to improve the quality of life — educating in heart, soul, mind, and strength.  Click HERE to learn more about HOI.

DSC_0756Our goal is to have at least two youth/young adults who are age 15-35 from each of the 9 districts in the KY Conference. Pastors and youth leaders are also encouraged to go!  Talk to your local church and your district superintendent to see what funds they may be able to provide.  Most of the people who have made this trip haven’t had any problem raising the money to go.

We will gather in Louisville on June 24th, 2016 and leave for Tegucigalpa, Honduras on June 25th. While in Honduras, we will lead Vacation Bible School for the children of the village. In 2015, over 100 children participated! We will also help improve the the village we work in by assisting with the building of latrines, stoves, pilas (they hold clean water), room additions, and with the pouring of concrete floors.  The group will return to Louisville on July 2nd.

This is an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ as we carry the message of Christ deep into the heart of Honduras. The total cost for the trip (airfare, transportation, meals, supplies, and housing) is $2100 per person. The deadline to register, with a $500 deposit, is March 25th, 2016.  Online registration is available now!
