Eagles’ Wings has led short-term outreach trips to Honduras for 16 years, ministering in a variety of settings, including prisons, orphanages, open-air meetings, church services, and on television. People of all ages have gone on these trips – from 9 to 71 years old!
The trip incorporates a variety of outreaches, including compassion ministry, practical work projects, special outreach presentations, ministry in orphanages and prisons, opportunities to encourage the local church, and special events to help equip the next generation to live for God.
We believe that we are called to show God’s love in practical ways. That is why in every Eagles’ Wings Honduras Trip we make it a priority to minister to the practical needs of the people of Honduras. Honduras is one of the poorest nations in Latin America, and God uses this exposure to release His compassion through all who go. We are always amazed at how God is able to use the little things that we do in Honduras to impact the lives of others. Over the years Eagles’ Wings has:
Practical Work Projects
- Raised $20,000 in relief aid to help the country following the tragic destruction of Hurricane Mitch in 1998.
- Brought in 2,000 cubic feet of medical supplies to help needy communities in 2004.
- Distributed over 150 “Family Blessing Kits” which included clothing items and medical supplies.
- Delivered hundreds of special backpacks filled with school supplies and clothing items for kids.
- By working with ministries already in the country, we are able to maximize the effectiveness of this aid to ensure it reaches those who need it most.
Over the years our teams have helped to improve the neighborhoods of Tegucigalpa and other outlying areas. These teams roll up their sleeves during these trips to help build churches, clean, paint, do yard work, and serve in whatever ways it takes to bless these communities.
Special Outreach Presentations
One of the most transforming experiences on these trips is when team members step out of their “comfort zones” and share the love of God with the people of Honduras. Through creative arts, drama, mime, song, humor, and short testimonies, the message of God’s love is communicated in open-air parks, schools, prisons, and even army bases and on national television.
Ministering to Children
Over the years, Eagles’ Wings has been able to visit many different orphanages including some for physically handicapped children. It is always amazing as we arrive at the orphanage to the welcome of literally hundreds of beaming faces of children who have had such a hard life and yet are so full of love. As we play with them, do face-painting, balloon animals, and simply offer kindness, the children’s timid looks and fearful eyes are replaced by joyful laughter and big smiles.
Sharing in the Local Churches
We are blessed to work with local congregations throughout the nation, partnering with them in the work they are doing in their communities. The team is often invited to minister in worship and preaching at these congregations, and is continually humbled by the passion and desire for God that shines forth from the faces of the Honduran believers. It is hard to tell who leaves more blessed by these times – the local church or our teams.
Training to Youth
Part of our Eagles’ Wings mandate is to train up the next generation, and past trips have accomplished this through special seminars and mini-camps with some of the Honduran Christian young people. Discussions about Israel, Worship, and Identity in Christ have ignited fresh fire in many young hearts to live for God.
Lastly, this trip takes a group of individuals from many different stages and walks of life and knits their hearts together, so by the end of the trip, deep friendships are formed, many which last far beyond the few weeks of this adventure.
