Honduras 2016 Trip News
If you’re considering making the trip to Honduras with us in July 2016, it is necessary for you to make a deposit toward your fees. This deposit will be $100 and will be due in January 2016. Also, make sure your passport is up to date. – Dean
Honduras Mission 2012
The plan is to work with the Predisan Ministry which is based in Catacamas Honduras. Catacamas is a city of 45,000 people. It has a rural flavor with cowboys, horses, and cattle, but is also a bustling city with taxis, pick-up trucks, motorbikes, bicycles, and many people walking. A short drive from Catacamas is a different world. Honduras is in the central time zone and does not have daylight savings time so while you are in Honduras the time will be the same as it is here in Grand Junction.
The name Predisan is based on Luke 9:2 where Jesus sent the twelve out to proclaim the kingdom of God and heals the sick and is derived from a contraction of two Spanish words: predicar, to preach, and sanar, to heal.
After arriving in Catacamas we hope to travel east approximately 40 miles into the Patuca Mountains to stay at Cedeco. Cedeco will be our base camp and from Cedeco we will go and work with the Christians at LaUnion. During the morning we will be involved in construction and maintenance projects for the community. The afternoon will center around home visits and bible studies. Knowing simple Spanish phrases is helpful.
