In 1997 Jim Phillips, Director of Love Truth Care Ministries, facilitated his first mission team to Honduras. He thought he knew what hardship was until that first trip to Honduras, when he came face to face with stark third-world poverty. God touched his heart as he witnessed the desperate situation of the people of Honduras, that all he could pray was, “Lord, send laborers.”
On Jim’s second trip in 1998 God placed the team in a mountain area 45 minutes from the capital city of Tegucigalpa, working in the San Matías mountain area. Over the next five years the teams helped build children’s home campus that serves abandoned and abused children. Each year the team would leave saying, “There’s something about this mountain.”
In 2003 Jim and his leadership team through Ministries of Divine Mercy USA began empowering the community through education and health programs. The leadership of MDM USA began sensing God’s call to expand their service and ministry into the sixteen villages in that rural area of San Matías.
