Keep updated on news and stories about the Heart for Honduras mission trips. We encourage you to join us on the next scheduled trip!
The 2023 Mission Trip is coming up!
Jesus commands that we “go and make followers of all people in the world.” (Matt 28:19). We are also reminded that we need to “…care for one another…” (See 1 Cor12:24-27) as members of the body of Christ.
This year we will be near Cofradia, a community about 45 minutes from San Pedro Sula. Our purpose is to help provide resources, orphanage support and medical attention to people of need while bringing them the Good News of Jesus.

31 missionaries returned to Buenos Aires this year to continue working on the school project. We finished 2 more classrooms, along working on sidewalks leading to the classrooms, along with some painting. Our medical clinic had over 1000 people visit and receive medication from the doctors and dentists. We also had an optometrist that fitted hundreds of glasses.
The Heart for Honduras mission team served in the remote village of Buenos Aires, Honduras. The village is a two hour trip from San Pedro Sula via a dirt road and is just outside Cusuco National Park. The people of the village mostly harvest coffee beans and wild flowers for their livelihoods. The construction team built two classrooms for the school that currently ends at 5th grade. With the addition of the two classrooms the school will now be able to teach through the 8th grade. The medical team treated over 900 patients, the dental team provided care to over 300 and the optometrist treated over 300. The mission team played soccer on a field with horses, rode in backs of trucks, jumped in the ocean, but most importantly built relationships through sharing the love of Jesus.
In addition, the team was able to spend a day visiting the orphans at Casa Hogar in Siguatepeque. Each orphan was blessed with a new outfit, shoes, pajamas, and undergarments. On Sunday the team worshipped with PIER Church located in San Pedro Sula. PIER is intergral to the success of the trip as they coordinate all of the logistics (transportations, food, housing, prayer) for the mission team while in Honduras.
In 2016 we worked in El Paraiso, which is located 30 minutes from San Pedro Sula. It was our third year working at this location blessing the lives of the community members!
Our 2016 financial goal was to raise $50,000 to construct two classrooms for an existing school, assist needy families, and buy medical supplies.
We fulfilled our purpose of helping supply housing, orphanage support and medical attention to people of need while bringing them the Good News of Jesus.
In 2015 we worked in El Paraiso, which is located 30 minutes from San Pedro Sula.
Our goal was to raise $45,000 to construct a kitchen and kitchen storage space for community mothers to cook lunch for the kids every day and to assist needy families and spread the word of God!
We fulfilled our purpose by helping supply housing, orphanage support and medical attention to people of need while bringing them the Good News of Jesus.
Take a look at the construction plans of the new kitchen and kitchen storage space!
We thank everybody involved in 2014’s mission trip! Whether it was by financial and emotional support and/or on site work and prayers, you have all been part of serving our Lord in helping the needy and sharing the gospel.
In 2014 we built a new school consisting of two classrooms. We bought supplies for concrete floors to be installed by the homeowners for 14 homes and five churches. We were able to work with five local churches in the area and they helped coordinate our relief for the community. We used a church to house our medical clinic and a kindergarten room to house our dental clinic. We saw close to 1000 patients. We had a group doing intentional witnessing to the villages being served and over the course of the trip over 200 people either gave or recommitted their live to Christ. We did many haircuts and styling. We shared the Gospel with the children and adults in the village. Our partnership with American Airlines allowed us to bring thousands of pounds of clothing and other supplies to share with the villages. We worked with our partners at PIER Church on the mission site and we had the great pleasure of PIER preparing all of our food for the mission team.
Thanks to everybody that supported us in 2013!
Here is a recap of the 2013 Mission Trip in Buenos Aires:
We improved a local school with concrete retaining walls and walkways. We installed a much needed roof on one of the existing buildings. We operated a medical clinic and a separate dental clinic. We were able to serve five small communities in the area seeing hundreds of patients. We shared the gospel through vacation Bible school and making arts and crafts. We gave many haircuts. Our partnership with American Airlines allowed us to bring thousands of pounds of clothes and supplies. We worked with our partners at PIER Church on the mission site and we had the great pleasure of PIER preparing all of our food for the mission team.
Thanks to your donations we:
We were blessed to work with the people from San José de la Sierra and we know that God also blessed them through the Hearts for Honduras team.
San Jose de la Sierra, Honduras
Fifteen years ago farmers began moving from the mountains to a colony called San Jose de la Sierra. They sold their farmland and moved closer to San Pedro Sula seeking jobs in factories. The huge infiltration of people resulted in overcrowding and ultimately poverty. Many of the families living there today do not even have a home and live in very poor conditions.
A new start…
Hearts for Honduras teamed up with PIER in 2010 to work in this area. Part of the team worked on a home for a local pastor. All donations were distributed to families in need. As always, a medical clinic was set up to care for the villagers—many of whom had never seen a doctor. A huge focus was on the many, many children who populate this colony and the team was able to set up Vacation Bible School to help spread the Word!
Hearts for Honduras plans to send two teams this year—the Illinois team and a “new” team from Oklahoma! The two groups plan to start construction on a school, continue to provide medical services, hand out donations from the States and continue the VBS that was started last year.
We look forward to the rewarding opportunity to serve God. We will face the challenges with Him by our side. Thank you for your support and prayers!
During 2008 and 2009, the Heart for Honduras teams were able to start building two stories onto the orphanage, adding the bedrooms and bathrooms planned. The children were given school supplies, craft projects and some much needed medical attention.
After several days of long bus rides to Valle De Otoro by the medical team, clothing and supplies were delivered to the people of the village, but more importantly, medical services were offered to many. The village had a “city center” area where several rooms were split into clinics, where the team offered specialty services including dental, pediatric, and women’s services. Several doctors and their assistants were able to get through hundreds of patients during the stay!
