This trip to Honduras will partner with Worldwide Heart to Heart Children’s Village in Tegucigalpita. WWH2H was started in response to the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Countless children were left homeless or without families. The WWH2H Children’s Village began construction in 2001 in Tegucigalpita, Honduras and opened its doors in 2003 to care for and raise the children God brings to its gates, equipping them to become responsible adults and productive citizens in the country of Honduras. They currently care for about 100 children.

They also provide medical/dental care to those in need in their community and facilitate volunteer Medical, Dental, Crusade, Vacation Bible School, Youth, Construction, Maintenance, Letter Writing, Women’s Conference, and Pastor’s Conference teams traveling to Honduras to support their efforts. WWH2HCV says “People tell us that each time they go on one of our trips, they expect to bless the kids, but end up being blessed themselves! It’s an amazingly rewarding experience to spend time helping out at the Worldwide Heart to Heart Children’s Village, because you instantly fall in love with the kids.”

What can you expect on a trip? You can expect to work hard, play and enjoy time with the kids, and learn what the Honduran culture is all about. You don’t have to specialize in anything in particular, other than having a heart to serve wherever needed!

Go Be Love International works to build long-term relationships with our partner ministries. Our goal is to come alongside our in-country partners to serve and support them. Consider joining this team, it will truly be a life-changing and unforgettable experience.

Team Member Commitment
I understand that the mission trip starts the day I apply for the trip and agree that, as a part of a Go Be Love mission team, I am committing to being available for conference calls leading up to the trip and reading all emails and materials pertaining to the trip, and responding when necessary. I understand that these communications are needed to maximize the effectiveness of my team on the mission field, to prepare each person for the trip and to build team unity. For some teams, this may include 4 to 8 conference calls leading up to the trip. I understand that a large part of these conference calls will focus on a spiritual preparation and will include doing a pre-trip discipleship study together.

Vaccinations
Go Be Love advises all travelers to read the US Department of State background notes on their website. Travelers can also check the latest health information with the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention at http://www.cdc.gov to get the most recent health advisories, immunization recommendations/requirements, and advice on food and drinking water safety for regions and countries. We also suggest that all participants consult their physician before traveling abroad.

Paying for Your Trip
Go Be Love encourages our team members to raise support. Once you are signed up for a trip, you can fundraise with all items on the team member fundraising section of our online store, you can send out support letters or come up with your own creative ideas. We use a team member database called Managed Missions that allows you to create your own custom fundraising page. Unlike other online fundraising pages, those donations will go directly into your trip account and will also be tax deductible for your donors. This feature is called Public Profile and we encourage all team members to create one and send the link to your donors who would like to give online. You and your donors can also make tax deductible payments toward your trip total by mailing checks to Go Be Love.
