One of Our Missions
The third step in our church strategy (Look Out) challenges everyone at The Fellowship to live on mission. Through local and international partnerships, we provide opportunities to serve in evangelism, discipleship, ministry to the needy, prayer, and opportunities to minister via your skills and gifts. By your involvement in projects, short-term trips, church mobilization events, training, and connections with missionaries and the unreached, your life can make an eternal difference!
Hope 4 Honduras is one of the many missions we support.
About Hope 4 Honduras
Hope 4 Honduras exists to help the people of Mogote, Honduras, develop a sustainable relationship with Jesus Christ. The ministry has a multi-purpose focus supporting the following ministries: daily feeding ministry, twice-a-day Bible Kinder (similar to VBS), Hope Academy after-school tutoring program for grades K-12, a newly accredited bilingual school, men’s & women’s ministries, a church with a Honduran pastor, Hope Bible Institute pastoral care for new churches across the city of Tegucigalpa, construction ministry, trade-skills ministry, a clinic with a Honduran doctor...and it’s still growing!
Ron and Shelley Jones are the original missionaries who started Hope for Honduras, Inc. and Asociación Humanitaria Esperanza para Honduras. They later adopted two sons, Joseph and Oscar.
Originally, Ron & Shelley went up to “Mogote” every day to pass out food in the streets and provide basic medical care. 20 years later, the ministry has a multi-purpose building housing the following ministries: daily feeding ministry, Bible Kinder (similar to VBS), Hope Academy Spanish School tutoring program, Hope Academy Bilingual School, women’s ministry, youth group, a church with a Honduran pastor, construction ministry, trade-skills ministry, a clinic with a Honduran doctor and it’s still growing! In the last few years, we have opened up a church building and a medical clinic in Colonia Jose Trinidad Cabañas through which we minister to the community there! Teams come year-round to partner with H4H and to fellowship with the locals and ministry staff. Lives are being changed and the Kingdom of God is growing in power and in numbers!
Immediately after Hurricane Mitch in November, 1998, approximately 300 people fled the devastation to find a safer and drier place to live. These people, in hopes of starting again, invaded the land high above the capital city. This rocky, undeveloped area overlooked Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Today, the area houses 100,000 plus people. Still, most people living in the capital city of Tegucigalpa do not even know that this area exists. The people are some of the poorest in Honduras living on $1 a day, yet they live within sight of a prospering city.
