We welcome a variety of mission teams to Honduras and Nicaragua each year. We offer trips to (1) Rancho Paraiso in northern Honduras [primary site], (2) San Lorenzo, Honduras in southern Honduras, and (3) Los Robles, Nicaragua. To learn more, read below or view our downloadable brochure.
WHO TRAVELS WITH HOI?
Groups ranging from 10 – 50 individuals volunteer with HOI in Honduras or Nicaragua. These may be churches, families, athletic teams, professional groups and more. Mission team volunteers must be at least 13 years old to participate if accompanied by an adult relative of the same sex (or 10 years old if accompanied by an adult relative on a Family Week trip).
WHEN ARE TRIPS AND FOR HOW LONG?
Mission trips are available year-round. Trip length can vary, but most service trips are 7 days.
WHAT IS THE COST?
The cost of participating in a mission trip to Honduras is $800 per person and $1200 per person to Nicaragua, which includes all costs except airfare. There is also a $1,000 fee per group to cover work materials.
HOW DO VOLUNTEERS SERVE?
Mission trip volunteers work alongside local villagers to complete projects to improve health and well being of the community. These projects can include building latrines, chimneys, water connections and more. Additionally, volunteers have the opportunity to teach Bible schools to the children of each village and meet with families who have requested prayer. We encourage medical professionals to use their gifts in the villages as well.
WHO DO VOLUNTEERS INTERACT WITH WHILE ON A TRIP?Each group is met at the airport by members of our bilingual staff who guide volunteers throughout the mission trip. Groups are assigned a village to serve alongside by HOI staff or partners. Teams come to know members of the community, from village elders to young children. Volunteers often find that seeing through the eyes of their new Central American friends is the most meaningful aspect of their trip, and many of these relationships continue year after year.
WHAT IS THE IMPACT ON VOLUNTEERS?Our volunteers are challenged through their mission trip experiences in ways as diverse as the volunteers themselves. No matter the lesson learned, trip takers return energized with a passion for serving and sharing the Gospel.
WHY TRAVEL WITH HOI?There are many short-term missions organizations doing outstanding work all over the globe, and HOI’s philosophy and work challenge the best. Learn what makes us different.
We hope you will recruit a mission team from your church, school, community or workplace, or will join an existing team as an individual. If you are interested in organizing a trip or joining a team, please contact Laurie Willing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
