Read testimonials from Heart for Honduras mission trip participants and how it changed their lives!
My experience with Hearts for Honduras was so memorable and rewarding! I had the opportunity to connect with and get to know many of the people, and they truly touched my life. One of the most astonishing moments was when three little children, siblings aged 10, 8 and 4, walked into the medical clinic without any adults. The two older children were so mature and courageous- they had come to town, an hour down the mountain, with their sick little sister. Their mother had passed away and their father worked non-stop- he was not around to care for the children- so the older children were the caregivers to the younger. The 4-year-old had an ear infection, so we prepared medicine and gave it to the older siblings with directions on how to use it. It was incredible to see how responsible these children were, and how much they all cared for one another. It really made me appreciate the loyalty and love within a family. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to serve with Hearts for Honduras, and I cannot wait to take part in future medical missions!

Going to Honduras on a mission trip with Hearts for Honduras was the best thing I have ever done in my life. I was compelled to go back to school and get my Masters. I want to be able to continue going on medical missions and make a difference. I am relieved to know there are people who care and do Gods work everyday. Hearts for Honduras is a source of inspiration.

My first trip to Honduras was life changing in several ways. Here’s one! I’ve always believed and understood that God loves the whole world and is present everywhere…but… I think I probably thought that God was basically headquartered wherever I was! (that probably meant he wore a Nebraska sweatshirt; had a rural background and wondered about everyone else. I was in worship on Sunday morning in San Pedro sitting with passionately, enthusiastic Hondurans. I had an English translation feeding into my ear. Alex Merlo was relating a news story he watched of two Mexicans drowning in a river while an Anglo smiled and let them drown. In any other context I probably would not have comprehended. There, at that moment I realized that God was present here too! Jesus was here! He loved my Honduran friends like he loved me. Not me first…them second. But loves us all “first” … no headquarters where I was at.
