Tell me more about this short-term mission trip!
MIll Creek is excited to once again partner with World Gospel Outreach (WGO) to serve in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Each year over 100,000 Hondurans come to receive medical, dental and optical care, as well as have concrete floors poured, and have an opportunity to hear about Jesus. WGO’s goal through these teams is to tell people the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples through our partner Honduran churches. Each morning the team travels by school bus to the local church where they will serve. Our teams first meet the physical needs of the people, then use the opportunity that God provides in those moments to share the Gospel. WGO has developed relationships with more than 250 local Honduran churches.
Most teams consist of 20 – 30 people who stay for one week. Some team members are medical professionals, although this is not a requirement. Most team members do not have any medical training, but serve as support people assisting in the different areas. WGO also has Honduran medical personnel on site working with the teams.
Team members stay in WGO’s Mission House in Tegucigalpa, constructed in 2009. The staff offices of WGO are also located in the Mission House, in Spanish named La Casa de Esperanza, or House of Hope. WGO’s full time kitchen staff prepares and serves buffet-style meals for breakfast and dinner, and prepares lunches for teams to eat at the Serve Team site. Accommodations at the Mission House are clean with common areas for dining, meetings, relaxing and fellowship. Sleeping arrangements are comfortable with bunk beds in the men’s and women’s bedrooms. Each bedroom can accommodate up to 18 people and each is adjoined to a bathroom with hot and cold water, showers and toilet facilities.
