While historically dependent on the export of bananas and coffee, Honduras has diversified its export base to include apparel and automobile wire harnessing/  Nearly half of Honduras's economic activity is directly tied to the US, with exports to the US accounting for 30% of GDP.

Population:  9.11 million  

Weather:  The climate in most of Honduras is tropical with a dry season in winter and a rainy season in summer.  However in the north, there is an equatorial climate meaning it is rainy most of the year.

 

 

Our ministry in Honduras is heavily emphasized by partnerships with local churches.  Our missionaries in country use one-day camps to open the door for youth to be exposed to the Gospel or to train nationals from local churches in outreach methods.  Other ministry opportunities are conferences that provide topical training, sports ministry, medical care, and partnering with HSD a primary school started to partner with under resourced families in the community.
