June 12-18, 2022 Mission to the Whatley Point of Hope Center in Honduras
We are now accepting applications for our June 12-18, 2022 mission trip to serve the needy people in the Honduras.
This team will be presenting a VBS to the children attending the Whatley Point of Hope Center in Olanchito, Honduras.
Fourteen years ago, Dario Delarco saw a need in his hometown of Olanchito, Honduras. In the community where he grew up there were children at risk due to poverty and lack of education. As a pastor he saw an opportunity to meet physical and spiritual needs through a church and child development center. He owned a little property in the community and decided to use it to house two simple buildings.
The ministry began and has operated with almost no outside help for 14 years. When we visited the small facility the Lord immediately placed on our heart the need to assist in the completion of Dario’s vision. This location has the potential to make a huge impact in the surrounding community with just a little funding.
This will be the first VBS ever presented to these children. It is going to be so much fun planning and presenting the Gospel of Jesus to these kids. I hope you’ll join us!
We believe that the Bible is clear that God expects us to take care of the poor, needy, widows and the strangers in our land (Isaiah 58).
The team will be staying at the Mission House just outside of Olanchito. Team members will sleep in bunk room. Individual showers with hot water are available.
Hondurans are nominally Roman Catholic with membership in the Catholic Church which is declining while membership in Protestant churches is increasing.
Weather in the summer is usually very warm and humid, averaging around 90 degrees.
While traveling to Honduras, we want to give you some helpful tips to prepare you for your trip.
