Mission Trip to Honduras

At the end of October, God provided me with the opportunity to go to Honduras on a mission trip. I didn’t know much about the trip beforehand, so trusting that God was taking care of everything was key in this moment. If you know me, you know I’m a planner. Not having a detailed itinerary for a trip is unlike me. I could have never expected what God had in store for me on this trip.

Blossom Creek Farm is in Santa Barbara, Honduras. The mission of Blossom Creek is “to impact the world for Christ starting with the villages of Santa Barbara, Honduras and continuing through sending and supporting missionaries overseas.” David and Megan Guevara live in Siguatepeque, about an hour and a half away from where they are currently building their training center. In Honduras, the biggest need in ministry is education so God’s word can be taught accurately. Once the training center is complete, it will host pastors and church leaders for training in preaching God’s word. If that wasn’t amazing enough, the training center sits on the same piece of property that also houses their coffee farm. Blossom Creek is training farmers in organic farming methods so that they can better take care of this amazing earth God has provided for us to dwell in. If you want to learn more about Blossom Creek, check out their website and this video!

After 17 hours of travel, we checked into D&D Brewery, Lodge, and Restaurant and the next day we headed up the mountain to see the training center for the first time. While the men started working on the training center, the women took a trip to “Nicaragua” (not really, it’s an inside joke) to go to a plant nursery. On Sunday, we rested. We visited a waterfall and ended our evening with a wonderful church service.

Two of the days we hosted women from the community for an event. The first day they made an apron and then the other day they cooked. While the language barrier was hard, it reminded me that God doesn’t only reveal himself through the words of others.

Progress on the training center is going well! Our group worked on plumbing, painting, landscaping, and a few other projects. Check out these photos below of our group working.

Here’s what God reminded me of during this trip:

God is present and working everywhere.

God’s love can be shown through a smile.

Rejoice always in the Lord.

God directs our steps. He is involved in the details of our life.

We are not big enough to mess up God’s plan. We aren’t powerful enough for that.

Honduras is a beautiful country with beautiful people and I’m excited that I’m going to be able to go back in March of 2023. This trip will include finishing touches on the training center (painting, landscaping, building a deck, etc.), outreach to the community, and the opportunity to learn more about and work at the coffee farm. If you would like to support me for the trip in March, you can donate at this fundraising link:

Thanks so much for taking the time to read about what God is doing in Honduras!
