LA CEIBA, HONDURAS TEAM

The ecotourism capital of Honduras, La Ceiba is known for its beauty and nightlife. It is also a city beset by intense poverty and crime. Here, an MTW team labors to advance the gospel through both spiritual and physical restoration.

The vast majority of church leaders in northern Honduras have little to no formal training. MTW La Ceiba offers biblical and practical training for church leaders, provides resources, and creates connections between U.S. and Honduran churches. Additionally, the team works to address physical and emotional brokenness through mercy ministries such as Puerta de Esperanza (Door of Hope), a safe home for at-risk teenage mothers; the Peter Project, a day drop-in center for street boys; and medical clinics that treat sickness and educate the community about healthy lifestyles. In this city of gang violence and spiritual darkness, God is moving through the Church to restore communities to Himself.
