Mission Trip to Honduras

$2,500 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 23 people in 47 months
Hey everyone! I'll start by saying that I'm beyond grateful for the opportunities and blessings God has given me over the past year.  After moving to Florida last summer, I quickly made Celebration Church in Jacksonville my home.  Here, I've been blessed with the opportunity to become part of an upcoming mission trip to Tegicigalpa, Honduras.

On September 3rd, a small group of women and myself will be traveling to Honduras to work with the local women and children, and minister to a local women's prison. Below are some of the organizations we will be working with:

Zion Ministries: founded in 1987 by Peter and Tyanne Jurke to prepare a platform for outreach in the local community

Operation Save: now seen as a source of support and friendship to Honduras, this humanitarian outreach was created in 1998 after hurricane Mitch devastated areas of the country

Honors Academy: bicultural Christian school, providing education and character training to the orphans of Honduras

Zion Tabernacle Church: Located in Tegicigalpa, this ministry serves as both a church and outreach through medical brigades, humanitarian aid, evangelistic outreaches and prison ministry

Hope Center: a home for orphaned, abandoned, and abused children. The center serves as a feeding center, a medical and dental clinic, and distribution center for humanitarian resources.

Through the support of mission trips like this one, and your donation, the Zion Tabernacle Church has the potential to help thousands of  poverty-stricken women and children in Honduras. I hope that you find it in your heart to give.. even the smallest donations will help me reach my goal!

Thank you!

It's been two short months since I created this account, and I still can't believe how many of you have donated and shared, and contributed to my current funds. I'm so appreciative, and can't wait to see what God has in store for you in return for your generosity. I ask that you continue to pray for, share, and make donations toward this trip- I've got 3 months left to raise funds, and I truly believe my goal can be reached, but only with the help and support of you.

It's surreal that I've been given this opportunity, and again, I want to thank everyone who has been a part of preparing for this trip; emotionally, spiritually, and financially.

Quick update: my original goal was $1500, which I thought was a stretch, but that was the amount I was asked to raise for this trip. With the incredible donations from all of you, I not only reached my goal, but surpassed it by $250!!! Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all of the shares and donations, and for the support and encouragement God has provided through my friends, family, and even those that I have never met. I'm forever thankful, and feel beyond blessed! I increased my goal, as additional funds will continue to support this trip, and other team members who may be struggling to raise funds. I pray that God places it on your heart to continue to donate, and am sure you will see his favor in return!

With about 15 weeks until my trip, I can't believe I'm almost halfway to my goal of $1,500! Your support and donations are making a huge impact on not only my life, but the lives of my mission group, and the people of Honduras.

I'm beyond thankful for people like you, who have been so generous.. It's truly amazing to see what God has placed on your hearts to support this trip- I pray you continue to do so, in hopes of reaching, or even exceeding my financial goal! Any donations made above my goal will contribute to other group members, who may be struggling to raise funds.

Thanks everyone! :)
