Honduras Mission Trips – MDM short-term mission trips are formed and facilitated 6-8 times each year. Trips can range from one week or more and accommodate groups of various sizes. Typical team objectives include new home construction, public school improvement projects, Gospel outreach, medical or dental clinic outreach and much more. Of course, every trip includes loving on the kids and families of San Matias. Contact us for details.
San Matías is a small community nestled in the mountains of Honduras about 30-40 minutes northwest of the capital city of Tegucigalpa. It is a community surrounded by fifteen villages… that we refer to as “the mountain”… for a total of approximately 3500 people, beautiful scenery and characterized by a relaxed pace of life.
However, just like the rest of Honduras, many residents live in extreme poverty. Jobs are scarce, and those jobs that are available don’t pay enough to live on–the average daily wage is approximately $5, which is barely enough to buy a few meal of beans.
It’s such a challenge to obtain sufficient food, little money is left for other basic needs like clothing and shelter–families must put forth their best efforts just to survive. Aside from obtaining food, one of the biggest challenges the community faces is education, healthcare and care for the elderly.
During your trip, you will have the unique opportunity to work alongside community members to help empower them with the resources they need to provide food, education, healthcare and assistance for their families and neighbors, bringing hope in the midst of difficult circumstances. You are sure to be touched by the warmth and hospitality of the people of “the mountain”.
The following teams are scheduled for 2019 and we would invite you to come and serve God and your neighbors with us.
