How we define Community Development… “Process by which communities and outside agencies plan, organize, or implement general improvements of community resources, facilities, economic conditions, etc., engaging a holistic approach and beginning with an asset based survey”.
Our Community Development Projects (CDP) Coordinator Francisco Alvarado works with the San Matías Patronato (Mayor) and the other 15 villages we serve to identify requirements in their villages, and then establish solutions which engage self-help systems and partners with visiting mission teams to assist with the project completion.
People visit this site looking for a short term mission trip. Some feel a nudge to do something that benefits someone else. Others are looking for adventure and personal growth. They have a desire to see, experience and discover their faith in new and meaningful ways. A CareTeam mission trip is a way to learn from others and explore what God is doing in Honduras.
When it comes to missions, some see it both ways. So do we.
