When we go to Honduras on an IMPACT Water trip, we don’t just dig ditches and build gravity-fed water systems. We build families, too.
Building families happens in three ways:
- Through the friendships that we establish between us American guys on the trip and our Honduran compañeros. Like Michael said, he was “able to make new family all the way in a different country.”
- By sharing with Honduran men how God expects a family to work. Unlike the surrounding culture, God doesn’t intend for families to be characterized by violence, silence, or division. We share with these men what it takes to love your wife, care for your children, and create a thriving family unit.
- By enlarging the family of God through Bible studies during the week that we are there and through follow-up events after we leave. An IMPACT experience may be the first time many of these men have heard the good news of Jesus in a fair and accurate way that they can understand and respond to.
When you join with IMPACT by sharing your resources or your time, you are helping build a family that together makes life better for everyone involved.
Thank you for being part of IMPACT’s ministry in Honduras.
