Taking medical clinics to the remote villages who would otherwise not have medical care near them. Giving hope. You can be a part of this ministry by being on a team that volunteers for a week in Honduras.
These clinics consist of medical consults, dental consults, providing medicines, and prayer. Many times lice treatments and Vacation Bible School are also conducted during the clinics as well.
Providing medical assistance for: medical visits, medicines, and exams for those who could not otherwise afford it. Donations to HRM help those in need receive badly needed medical assistance.
Medical Access Assistance helps people like Olga. The hospital told this mom to take her premature twins home before they got sick. So, at 2.6lb, these twins when to a dirt floor adobe home. We helped them for six months: taking them to checkups, sterilizing bottles, providing formula and potable water. In this picture, the twins weigh over 10lb.
Medical Access Assistance has also helped people like little Rosie. Rosie has cerebral palsy and this wheel chair is being adapted for her special needs.
We are helping the exceedingly underfunded local public hospital through improvements in facilities, equipment and service. This also gives us the opportunity to inject Christ into the hospital environment, where over 200,000 patients are served.
This is the only hospital in the department, and servesThis is the only hospital for the poor within a four hour drive. It is the hospital of the poor.

Teaches Godly living, hygiene, nutrition, cooking, and gardening and gives vegetable seed to pregnant women at the hospital. Plans have been made to introduce this program to other hospitals around the country of Honduras.
The participants of this program receive the production of a garden we have on the Hospital grounds and heirloom seeds that will produce seeds during the harvest; making this program sustainable. This program gives these families access to vitamins and minerals through the vegetables they grow with these seeds.
This program focuses on nutrition and life skills of new and expecting mothers. Many of these women in Intibucá lack education in the this area including: basic hygiene, reproductive anatomy, pregnancy, obstetric risks and dangers, labor, postpartum care, breastfeeding and nutrition. This project will also give seeds to individuals for home gardens of vegetables otherwise unavailable.
Our goals are to:
mothers about life skills that include:
mothers to create a healthy living environment for their children and have access to vitamins and minerals through home gardens resulting in a healthier life for her family and community.
mothers in the program showing them that God loves and cares about them. The program teaches that God’s word lays out a plan for their lives and includes the same healthy principles taught. And that a healthy spiritual life is gained through the seed of life which is Christ.
This is a self sustaining demonstration farm that will be start in 2012. This farm will do three things.
This farm will be run as a social business with the focus of affect social change not maximizing monetary profit.
This is s a new social business that is in the fund-raising stage. Our primary mission is to create social change through agriculture while maintaining sustainable profitability.
We will serve the people of Honduras (the poorest country in Central America) by growing healthier, better quality produce, employing the unemployed, educating farmers, and empowering the poor to use their land in a sustainable way.
In Honduras, the poor often exist on as little as one or two corn tortillas daily. Lack of food access is one of the greatest threats to the health of people living in developing countries like Honduras. This lack of food security is partly due to the inability to grow sufficient food on land owned.
Food security will increase as we teach and empower the Honduran farmers. The end goal is for every household to be food-secure. A household is considered food-secure when its occupants do not live in hunger or fear of starvation.
There are more and more at risk youth looking for mentors and families. These kids are on their way to becoming gang members or alcohol and drugs users. We are working with local schools and pastors to reach these youth for Christ. Ministering to them while they are young and before they are lost to the world.
These schools are in areas where there are not churches or Christian work. We plan to plant churches in these areas soon.
In Erandique, Lempira there are over 1,000 youth. Only 5% go to church. The local pastors are asking for our help to reach them. We will be doing more work in these outlying areas throughout the year.
Would you consider bringing a team to help us reach these kids?
Empowering the Local Honduran Pastors
to be more effective and plant the vision of the great commission and help their congregations reach outside their walls to the community, country and the world for Christ. If you are a speaker or know one who would be like to be a blessing to the Honduran pastors please let us know. We would love to setup a conference where they can learn from you.
"Thanks for your hospitality last week.
We truly enjoyed ourselves. You did a great job of receiving and hosting us. Meeting the pastors and leaders and having the opportunity to minister to them was a wonderful thing. Thank you for the invitation. I trust we were able to leave a significant deposit with them as they change their communities."
