We have been sowing seeds of faith in Honduras since 2013, and we are currently supporting community development and mission work in the town of Punta Gorda. This is led by Justin and Ashley Guest and their goal is to work alongside local leaders and educators to empower the community of approximately 5,000 people. This holistic approach includes teaching job and life skills, health and nutrition, and providing bible studies and small groups. Each year, a mission team from FUMC supports their work, visiting Honduras to provide some of the skills, labor and materials needed.
Honduras Mission Trip: June 26-July 3, 2021
In June, 2021, a team of up to 14 people from First Church will serve in the community of Punta Gorda, a small town in Honduras that is suffering greatly from poverty that was intensified by recent pandemic restrictions. We have been partnering with the missionaries there, Justin and Ashley Guest, for many years, and we look forward to growing the relationship with them. During the trip, there will be opportunities for members of the team to do construction projects, work with the people & children, run VBS, and potentially in other areas too.
Want to be on the team?
October 3 onwards: Application forms available at the church and right here.
Sunday October 18, 11am Crossfire: Informational meeting for all who are interested
Sunday December 30: Applications & deposit due
If you’d like to be involved but don’t feel called to travel to Honduras, we appreciate your prayers for the team, the missionaries, and the people in Honduras. You can also financially support the team and be involved with our fundraisers.
Checks are payable to FUMC with Honduras Trip in the memo.
