Heart to Honduras carries out its work through a "web" of partner relationships. Our partners include Heart to Honduras (stateside) Corazon Para Honduras (Honduras), local Honduran government, Honduran pastors and their leaders, Honduran community council and committee leaders, Honduran non-profit organizations, and stateside churches, businesses, universities, and non-profit organizations, as well as donors and prayer partners.
Transformational development is the goal of these committed relationships. Our hope is that our stateside partners will work together over time to pursue God’s vision for the holistic transformation of the partner Honduran communities. In time, the North American support can decrease as the Hondurans become increasingly empowered and equipped to be the heroes of their own story. Once thriving communities are established in Honduras, the long-term goal can be purely relational. Liberation from the oppressive forces of poverty and injustice is what we pray and work for. Together with us, your church, business, or organization can be a transformational agent in God’s mission in the world.
Simply put, the Partners in Transformation initiative matches North American entities with Honduran communities in this "web" of focused partnerships to expand the Kingdom of God. The Honduran pastors and leaders work with the leaders of their communities – village council, water committee, school administrators and teachers, and others to develop vision and strategy that will lead to transformation. Those words may convey the purpose of the program, but they cannot express the depth and power of the partnerships. The Partners in Transformation initiative enables peoples from very different countries and cultures to develop a strong and lasting relationship. This relationship is formed and strengthened through mutual prayers, physical and financial support, formational initiatives, and intentional times of sharing in work, play, worship, and fellowship. Mutual learning, cultural understanding, and mutual encouragement are at the heart of these powerful relationships. Developing a cross-cultural relationship promotes moving past praying for “the people of Honduras” to praying for individuals you know and love deeply. The passing years provide many opportunities for each partner to watch the other live, grow and develop – sharing victories and struggles, worries, and successes. The relationship changes not only the church and community in Honduras, but also in North America. As the partners walk through life together, they find that they are blessed, challenged and encouraged to become the disciples, leaders, church and community God wants them to be.
The Partners in Transformation initiative is one beautiful way that Heart to Honduras works to form disciples who will transform their world.
