This may include going out with the team to the worksite and/or completing tasks at the ministry campus. This individual must be mature - emotionally and spiritually - ready and able to complete tasks and to relate positively to the team, on-site coordinators, and Honduran staff. In addition to the standard $1200 per week charge, there will also be an additional per day charge of $12 to cover the extra insurance and field costs.
EVANGELISTIC FOCUS: The purpose of our being in Honduras is to partner with Honduran congregations in proclaiming the gospel of Christ. All teams (including construction) will have opportunity and be encouraged to participate in evangelistic outreach to the community in which they work. This may include prayer walks, door-to-door visitation, VBS or Backyard Bile Clubs for the children, etc. Please keep this in mind as you prepare your team. Our ministry takes place in the Choluteca area, as there are many needs there.
AGE: Applicants must be at least 18 years old to participate.
HEALTH: Applicants must be in good physical health. Anyone with a chronic medical condition should not volunteer for this project. All areas of work will be hot and humid. Volunteers will need to make sure the following shots are up to date: Typhoid, Hepatitis A, and Tetanus. Malaria pills are also recommended for most areas. Tell whoever administers your shots that you will be traveling to Honduras. (They may suggest other shots. This is up to you.)

LIVING AND WORKING CONDITIONS: Those participating in this effort must be flexible and willing to work as a member of the team. Travel, living, and working conditions may be difficult at times. The work may be quite strenuous and the climate will be hot and humid. Once applications and deposits have been received, team members will be sent an orientation manual, which will answer many questions about the trip.
OTHER: Smoking, chewing tobacco, and drinking alcoholic beverages is highly offensive to Honduran Christians. Team members must refrain from these activities while in Honduras.
