Honduras Project


Honduras Project is a student-led short term missions project that each year raises funds for a gravity-fed water system in a rural village in the mountains of Honduras. Since 1982, a team of students has gone down to Honduras every year for a week of labor, ministry, and cross-cultural sharing.

Mission Statement:  Honduras Project is a Christ-centered community that seeks to serve the Lord by encouraging, building relationships, and working with the people of Honduras. This project exists because Christ first loved us and has called us to love him and to love others, and springs out of the belief that Christ's love is holistic and cares about physical needs as well as spiritual needs.

Team Verse: For 2019/20, This year, the theme for the Honduras Project is wholeheartedness. In seeking to serve others as Christ has served us,it can be easy for a person to get overwhelmed by global needs or personal inadequacy and, as a result, lose heart. However, as an organization, we believe that “God can never be loved as much as He deserves to be loved, but He can be ‘loved wholly’ or ‘by the whole person’” (Mary T. Clark). This is an amazing (and consuming!) truth: we are asked to love God with all of our heart, all of our soul, all of our mind, and all of our strength, and though we can never love God as fully as He deserves, we can seek to love Him with our whole selves. In the context of Honduras Project, we have found that wholeheartedness often looks a lot like raking leaves and doing dishes.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said: The first commandment is this: ‘Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is the only Lord. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength’ (Deuteronomy 6:4-5). The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’. There is no other commandment greater than these. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets (Matthew 22:39-40).
