Walk With Us – Honduras
Shannon Hopkins and his family left behind their “normal” lives and Shannon’s youth ministry position in order to serve and love the people of Honduras.
Shannon’s team shares Christ with Hondurans through a variety of mission and ministry activities. They have a farm, work at a radio station, teach at a Christian school, serve orphans, and help lead a church in Gracias, Honduras.
Our teams will help Shannon’s team lead a youth camp for the kids in the school. Your students will get to build relationships with Honduran students (who speak English) and will get to share the love of Jesus with them while helping run the youth camp.
Your students will love the kids, love the people, get to serve in a variety of ways, and learn how to live on mission as they serve alongside Shannon and his team.
Shannon invites you to come and walk with his family as they share the love of Jesus with the people of Honduras.
