Honduras Mission

Roatan, Honduras is an island off the coast of mainland Honduras. The weather is tropical, warm and humid year-round. Roatan, although a popular tourist location, suffers with extreme poverty, poor education and limited access to healthcare. We have been traveling to Flowers Bay in Roatan since 2014. During this time our mission teams have helped the community improve their churches, schools, and homes. We have supported the local health clinic and helped form lasting relationships with the people in the community.

Each year we adapt our focus to support their current need while encouraging independence and sustainability in everything we do.
