FINDING THE NEED

H

onduras is one of the poorest nations in the western hemisphere, so it doesn’t take much digging to find needs–needs that often demand an answer. The government has little funding for education; therefore, it is very difficult to receive an education beyond the sixth grade. If a family wants their children to have more, they are forced to pay for it themselves.

Where does this leave those that barely have enough money for food and living, let alone education? Thus, it seems the nation is feeding the seemingly never ending cycle of poverty and lack of hope. There are numerous un-reached mountain villages that still do not have electricity or running water, have children without clothing or shoes, and have families without food to feed their children.

High percentages of young marriages and teen pregnancy is the norm, and sadly this is all they seem to know. Homes are barely constructed of mud, sticks, cardboard and whatever material they can use to cover themselves. Many villages have no organized church, nor a pastor, nor a church building in which to meet, which leaves their spiritual needs unfulfilled.

MEETING THE NEED

Tree of Life Ministries uses every resource and strategy available in order to meet the need. This includes the cooperation of many avenues, including staff and student volunteers, short-term teams, international partnerships and project donors. Check out our outreach page to learn more about how we meet the need.

REVOLUTIONIZING THE NATION

…through Improved Education

♦ We are graduating, on average, 100 students each year from our high school, Plan Escalon. These young men and women are trained to go out into the workforce of their country, taking with them the Word of God, and begin to bring the nation up to a higher level, from within.
♦  Our students have raised their vision to a standard with greater hope and purpose.
♦  Many get involved in their own communities by becoming teachers in areas that have no schools, or by holding political positions such as mayors, lawyers etc.
♦  Many of our graduates obtain good jobs and continue their education by attending universities.
♦ Many have even returned to Escalon after graduating, to become part of the staff and to give back into the system that changed the destiny of their lives.
♦  Many have waited to get married and start their families until later in their lives.
♦ In a Nation of some 70% unemployment, over 70% of our graduates have full-time employment.

…through Improved Quality of Life

♦ Unreached villages are receiving electricity and potable water.
♦ Children are receiving improved education in high mountain villages.
♦ The “Mosquito Coast” is being reached with education and medical training that is giving the jungle region of Honduras a hope for a better future.

More importantly, many have been impacted with the miraculous, life-altering, power of God and are passing on the “living gospel” to the next generation.
