Fundraising for our annual Honduras Medical Brigade

Each year, we make a trek to Honduras with an organization called World Gospel Outreach.


 The purpose or WGO is.

1 To serve and reach the poor for Christ.
2 To provide care for displaced or abandoned children.
3 To provide opportunities for the North American Church to experience the joy that comes through serving.

WGO has been partnering with North American churches for over 25 years to serve and bring the gospel to
 Honduras.

WGO partners with over 80 local churches in the poorest neighborhoods to bring medical services, and hope to the people.



Some Statistics
  • Honduras is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
  • It was devastated by Hurricane Mitch in 1998 and has still not recovered. 
  • Recently the U.S stopped Aid to Honduras.
  • The average  income in Honduras is about $1 per day per person.
  • Most households are led by single mothers.
  • 37% of the males are alcoholics.
  • 10% of the people have a car.

 Final thoughts


This trip is the highlight of our year as we serve the gracious people of Honduras.
