They know what their communities need to grow and prosper, and they have deep faith in Christ -- borne of hardship -- to see it though. We have the resources they lack and hearts to be inspired by their example.
The connections between the church in North America and the church in Honduras is a living example of how the Body of Christ should work.
Heart to Honduras has forged this vital connection to transform communities in rural Honduras, investing in projects designed to empower and equip communities to transcend poverty. And all of it is centered around the church, mindful that ...
They're young. They're on fire for Jesus. They want to spread the gospel as widely as possible. But they have virtually none of the training they'll need to make a lasting difference.
This situation exists not only in Honduras, but in many countries where the church is growing rapidly. New believers fill churches and even plant new ones, but without solid Biblical teaching, heresy and error are not only risks, they are realities.
This is why Heart to Honduras' School of Discipleship exists -- to turn enthusiastic young believers into mature disciples, capable of reproducing themselves and doing effective work, whether it's evangelism, ...
Summer camp. For North Americans it's a phrase that summons images of canoeing, knots, campfires, and mischief. But for Honduran young people, it instead speaks of changed lives through packed days -- an encounter with God who loves them, sent His son to die for them, and thinks enough of them to ask them to serve.
That's the story of the International Extreme Camp, in Santa Elena. In a country where a camp experience is a one-in-a-lifetime experience, it offers young people a fresh look at life, a way out of hopelessness, and a challenge to live for something larger than ...
34 long months
AMAZING, WONDERFUL, PRAYER
ANSWERING NEWS FROM SANTA ELENA!
By Gordon Garrett
For almost three years (34 lo-o-o-o-o-ng months) we have been praying and waiting to receive the environmental permit for Heart to Honduras' beautiful Youth & Family Camp in Santa Elena, Honduras.
We are so pleased, thankful, and excited to announce that we now have that permit! Heart to Honduras can now resume construction of the cabins and other facilities for the camp!
Here is a brief recap of this process:
Complaints were filed by the Lake Yure Water Authority, the community of Santa Elena, and others against our Honduras ministry (Corazón Para Honduras) for cutting ...

Hope for the Hopeless
Heart to Honduras tries to direct all of the social work it does through the local church. We do not believe that one should exist without the other. The church is to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this world. For us to simply preach the Gospel of Jesus and ignore the physical needs would not follow what Jesus modeled when He walked on the earth.
At the same time if all we do is take care of physical needs, we are missing the point of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. The church is called to bring both physical ...
Clothing for the Naked
While our closets are often overflowing with clothes, many of the Hondurans we serve only have one or two sets of clothing. It is not uncommon to see children with no shoes or sandals.
In the past we often gave used clothing through the women's ministry. However, the Honduran government is now restricting the import of clothing in an effort to boost the textile industry. Although we can no longer bring in large quantities of clothing, we still distribute clothing left by Ministry Teams.
This of course has not changed the need.
We have begun to address this issue through the local church by ...
Food for the Hungry
Jesus spent a lot of time taking care of hungry people. He fed thousands of people when they followed Him. He spent quite a few evenings at dinner with friends and others that invited Him. He understood the powerful connection that is made when we break bread together. HTH Founder Charlie Smith knew the importance of feeding people, but he also came to understand the greater good of creating community by eating together. It is not by chance that the dining hall is the center of life in Canchias.
Beyond feeding people, Heart to Honduras wants to help them learn how ...
Housing for the Homeless
No one wants to live in a cardboard box or under a plastic tarp, but many people in Honduras have no other choice. The houses that people live in consistently fail to meet any health standard. They often have dirt floors, no screens in the windows, leaky roofs, poor ventilation and inadequate restroom, shower and wash facilities.
While a house in Honduras costs much less than in the United States, it is still beyond the means of many people. Over the past few years we have addressed that need by building what we call ministry (widows) houses. These small, inexpensive houses provide ...
Healing for the Hurting
The World Health Organization (WHO) states health is “not merely the absence of disease or infirmity,” but expands its definition to assert that health is a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being” ( www.who.org ).
Heart to Honduras chooses to add this spiritual dimension of health as the core, the nucleus of health. The other dimensions cling to the spiritual dimension while at the same time, merging and fusing with each other, composing the whole of health for every person.
The concept of holism – all parts make up the whole – applies not only to health dimensions of an ...
