In Azaculpa we are concentrating on serving and loving those disenfranchised by the local church through the Adelante Honduras Community Center. We offer a variety of skills classes to empower them to make a difference; while encouraging them through Bible exploration opportunities to seek how God would direct their paths. Sadly the general evangelical church in Honduras has become burdened and suffocated by rules and regulations, which often exclude those they are sent to love. The doors to the center remain open to allow time to explore social skills and give a greatly needed safe place to just have fun.

 

StepUp Honduras - About Us

About Honduras

Honduras is a mountainous land in the center of Central America with coastal plains on the Caribbean and touching the Pacific Coast. It is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with the second fastest growing AIDS epidemic.


In 1998 super-hurricane Mitch destroyed 60% of the country’s infrastructures, killing 11,000 people and the country is still suffering the effects of this devastation. Unemployment is 51-60%. Civil Wars in neighboring countries greatly affected this small country with none of the rebuilding efforts afforded their neighbors. Recent political problems, especially the 2010 Coop and continuing unstable government makes progress difficult.


Imagine all that, and remember… there are no government aide packages, no insurance and no helping hands, your neighbors are all devastated also. In spite of this, or maybe because of it, they are still open, and ready to learn.

Our vision is that the Honduran people are climbing a great hill, they are making progress but they are defeated. There is a wonderful Harvest on just the other side, but they are weary. We desire to help them ‘OVER THE TOP’. They need encouragement. It is their harvest, but we can walk alongside, we can provide skills and love, and we can pray.


Encouraging continuing education is a huge stepping stone for the future of Honduras. We have a Computer Learning Center that generous donors have supplied through ‘Progress Tools’. Cooking, sewing and exercise classes for the women; which opens them up to new experiences as well as providing valuable life skills and health awareness education. Tim teaches wood working and toy making skills to the teen boys and men. This is not only an educational opportunity but a bridge builder as well.

Any mission that seeks to reach other people groups in a distant land is costly, requiring both sacrifice and participation of many. Please consider being apart of our support team; whether as intercessors, senders or short term on site help. You may contact us here on this site or at Establishtruth@hotmail.com. Tax deductible donations can be mailed or we can give you the information to give on line.

Establishing God's truth in the hearts of His people through love and encouragement.

We also have a variety of services for the poorest of the poor, reaching out and loving those considered unlovable. Serving the handicapped, feeding children bound by illness, providing wheelchairs and crutches when needed and just being the hands and feet of Jesus anyway we can.
