Honduras Trip Description
Nestled in the foothills of central Honduras sits the city of La Villa San Antonio. In this small community, Pastor Peter Isaac and Linaje Escogido Church are working diligently to serve the poor. King of Kings and Crossroads churches will partner to send a mission team to assist at feeding centers for children and seniors, to visit senior shut-ins, and work side-by-side with Linaje Church in its efforts to build a new feeding center in the small village of San Nicolas.
The second largest of the Central American countries, Honduras is bounded on the north by the Caribbean Sea, on the east and south by Nicaragua, on the southwest by El Salvador and the Pacific Ocean, and on the west by Guatemala. Honduras has rich and distinct ecosystems; lush jungles, mountains, rivers, clear turquoise waters and pristine beaches.
The economy is agricultural-based, with bananas and coffee as the most important exports. Political stability in the last 25 years has allowed the Honduran economy to diversify into other areas such as tourism, apparel and shrimp farming.
However, Honduras still remains one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere. With a population of eight million people, over 60 percent of Hondurans live below the poverty level of $2 per day, with a majority of the poverty reserved for the more rural areas.
