OUR UNIVERSITY MINISTRY IN HONDURAS SERVES MANY AREAS OF NEED.
Your team will have an opportunity to help precious people who have no access to medical care. This beautiful country has tremendous need for medical intervention.
So much suffering can be prevented with your team’s medical knowledge and life saving contributions of treatment, training, and education.
Our ministerial teams travel to the beautiful mountains of Honduras to share the good news of Christ. The needs are great and the rewards of serving the wonderful people of this country are life changing
WHAT WILL WE DO?
In our Honduras program, a medical university team will work alongside in-country doctors, our U.S. volunteer doctors and other medical professionals as well as your own professors. You will work with children and adults. You may serve in a village mobile clinic, a hospital, work with Diabetes patients in treatment and education, bring aid to malnourished children, etc. Non-medical teams may work with orphan and needy children, rebuild walls for a struggling single mother, help provide a village with clean water, the opportunities to serve are endless.
HOW SOON DO I NEED TO SCHEDULE A TRIP?
We begin working on our Honduras trips 10 months to a year in advance for medical teams and no less than 6 months for non-medical teams.
DO YOU REQUIRE UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS TO TRAVEL WITH THE STUDENTS?
Yes, we ask that one or more professors from the university travel with their students. The professor will be responsible to communicate instructions and guide their team throughout the trip. University guidelines must be followed as well as LHGM’s guidelines. Our staff will be with your team the entire trip to take care of all of your needs.
DO YOU WORK WITH STUDENTS OR FACULTY?
We ask that your university staff work directly with our ministry in setting up and planning the trip. We will work with the professors or program directors on the specifics of the trip and they will communicate the information to their students, however, our staff will be available to answer questions and offer help to university staff and students anytime.
ARE WE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY TRAINING?
