Honduras

Overview

Honduras is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere with nearly 21% of the population living on less than one US dollar per day. The people of this country are starving physically and also spiritually! Serve the people of Honduras on one of three trips we offer.

Missioners of Christ: On this mission, you will bring hope to the people of Comayagua, Honduras, by working alongside the Missioners of Christ, Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, and the Diocese of Comayagua to catechize and serve remote mountain areas near Comayagua. In the villages, you will participate in home visits and lead daily programs for youth, young adults, and parents, feeding them spiritually and physically!

Farm of the Child: On this mission you will be working at Finca del Niño (Farm of the Child), an orphanage in Honduras. You can find out more about the orphanage here.

Amigos De Jesus: Join us on our first mission with Amigos de Jesus! On this mission, you will be working with abused, abandoned, and impoverished children of Honduras. Read more about Amigos de Jesus here.

Fundraising

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.

Testimonies

“My participation on a FOCUS Mission Trip taught me about God’s love. The love that I received from the other missionaries allowed me to understand that God is calling me to more in this life. We are meant to be the best versions of ourselves.”

– Justin Tomko, University of Pittsburgh

“This trip really showed me how many things we have that separate us from God. I realized that it is in the most simple of settings that His beauty can truly shine through. I experienced Christ in everyone that I encountered and it was an experience that has changed my life forever.”

– Anna Lee, University of Nebraska – Lincoln
