Get Ready for a Life Changing Experience
Every year we host many short term teams who come to serve the people of Honduras. Over and over again the teams report that their time in Honduras was a real life changing experience. If you are interested in coming with a team we have two options for you to choose from:
Those on this track will spend their week visiting and ministering in many different parts of the ministry. For more information about where you will be serving, visit the outreach pages. Preparation is key to your success on the evangelism track. Before coming to Honduras, you and your team should prepare activities for each of the places you’ll visit. Your Manos Extendidas team coordinator will help you with ideas. There are also specific needs within some of these ministries so you may want to spend some time with your team collecting items to be distributed on your trip. Again, your coordinator will help you with ideas.
Does your team members have a passion for serving? Do you have specific skills or trades represented by members of your team? Those who choose the service track will be put to work using their skills. Some of the ways teams serve is through painting, building, or teaching. For example, your team could raise $2,200 to build a house for a needy family. There are many needs here in Honduras so we will do our best to match up your skills and passions with meaningful ways to serve.
Regardless of the track you choose, you must always remain open to how God chooses to use you and your team. It is not uncommon for a team on the Evangelism Track to spend a day painting or teams on the Service Track to spend a night on the streets feeding the street kids.
Long Term Missions and Internships
Manos Extendidas always has openings for those who are called to Honduras for long term service – be it months or years. Included with that we also offer internship opportunities for those who are interested in serving during a summer break from college or for another specified length of time. Please contact us using the Contact page and let us know of your desire. We will do an informal interview to determine a fit for the ministry and provide you with any additional requirements necessary for your service.
