2020 Honduras (San Lorenzo) Transit
- Jul 4 2020 - Jul 11 2020
- San Lorenzo, HN
About the Journey
Through our partnership with HOI, this Transit team will head to Honduras, the second largest country in Central America. Bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south, its tropical rainforests, stunning coastlines, and Mayan ruins are just some of the things for which Honduras is known. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the poorest of the Latin American countries, and almost two-thirds of the population lives in poverty.
From Atlanta, the team will fly into Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. Upon arrival they’ll take a several hour bus ride to La Casona, a large home that includes multiple rooms with bunk-style beds. San Lorenzo, the community in which they’ll be serving, is nearby. In preparation for the flight home, the team will head to La Maya Hotel, which is much closer to the airport, for the final night’s stay.
This team will work with HOI to meet the needs of the local community. Generally, teams take on construction projects that help with the improvement of health and sanitation in family homes. They usually include laying cement floors, making wash basins and building latrines--but don’t worry. No prior construction experience is necessary.
The team will also coordinate some interactive relational activities for the local school children and host a Vacation Bible School camp. They’ll play games, tell stories, sing songs, and just have fun.
Sharing the love of Jesus while improving local homes in the community will not only be an eye-opening experience, but also one that you won’t soon forget. If you’re interested in the opportunity to serve the Honduran community, apply now!
Please only apply for ONE student trip.
Price listed is per person.
New for 2020!
You're busy enough, so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of individual forms you need to complete simply by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. Students, if you are under the age of 18 and will be at the time of travel, you will need a parent present to help you complete this part of the application. Lastly, paper copies of your passport are not needed. Just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile and you're done!
global(x) provides meaningful journeys for teams to serve at-risk people in communities around the world. We want to help you combine your faith and service so you can help make life better for those in need, grow your faith, and make a difference in the world.
