Projects

People often ask, "What can we do to help?" With God's help, hundreds of people have worked together to make things possible that we could have never even imagined in the Choluteca regional ministry. We are grateful to those who work alongside of us every day.  

There have been churches and individuals who have made financial donations that have been used to start and operate the clinic, vocational school, and build church buildings. There have been construction teams from the States that have worked alongside Hondurans in 100 degree heat on building projects. People have made scholarships available to support primary and high school students, vocational students, and university students. Tools and vehicles have been donated. We have no idea how many people have been fervently praying for us. 

Below, we have listed some of the ideas that been used in the past for people to become involved in helping advance the ministry in Choluteca, Honduras. You can make donations online through World Gospel Mission for three different projects. Just open the link to www.overholtoverview.org and fill in the online form.
