Heart to Honduras is celebrating its 25th anniversary, an anniversary traditionally associated with the color silver. There is much information about silver, 25th anniversaries, the symbolism of silver in a myriad of cultures across the ages, and the representation of silver today.

The title of Jim Usher’s inspirational biography on Charlie Smith, the founder of Heart to Honduras, sums up the very nature of who Charlie was: A Man After God’s Own Heart.

Coffee is an important aspect of life in Honduras. Throughout the country, ...
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, ...
Today the young men and women who compose the next generation of missionaries are texting their friends, mastering the latest video game, and fretting over their social media interactions. Concern for the cause of the Gospel in the developing world? It's way down the list, if its on the list at all.

Meanwhile, Honduran ...
