COST
$2,100.00

HOI, Inc. is a nondenominational, nonprofit Christian organization headquartered in Tucker, Georgia. One of its bases of operation, Rancho el Paraiso, is in central Honduras. At this location and the surrounding villages, HOI's staff focuses on six active programs: medical, education, spiritual life, agriculture, community development, and short-term missions. Depending on the projects specified for the village you will work with, your team may do one or more of the following: mix cement to provide floors and latrines for families; build chimneys, roofs, and/or room additions; serve a family by helping create gardens for their homes; and conduct Bible studies for children or adults. To commemorate the projects completed by your team and community members, you may end your time with a party in the village.

Middle school students are hyper-aware of their surroundings and culture. While this natural focus helps them develop their definition of the adults they are becoming, it causes many people to accuse them of being “selfish” or “living in a bubble.” Therefore, we encourage parents to take their middle schoolers on a different type of adventure after they finish 7th grade: a mission trip. It is eye-opening for students to see people living in different cultural contexts, dealing with different sets of challenges. We believe that giving parents and students an opportunity to serve together is the most powerful way for them to grow and discover a faith of their own.

We are looking for students who are in 7th grade (during the 2018-2019 school year), who are actively involved in Transit, who can each be accompanied by one of their parents (26 people maximum). Fluent Spanish speakers are great assets, but English-speaking staff are also available to help translate.

**Note that the cost of the trip listed is the cost PER PERSON.
