WELCOME TO MISSIONS

Dear Prospective Mission Team Leader,

Thank you for your interest in leading a short-term mission team to the Island of Roatan, Honduras. We are grateful to God for placing this desire in your heart. Now as you offer yourself to God’s greater work, he will use you to glorify himself and to further his Kingdom even here on Earth.

The materials and suggestions we will send in the future are only some of the ways that you might organize and lead a team of like-minded individuals on this great encounter. Perhaps you have led other international teams, and this is just a change in venue. Maybe this venture is all new to you and you have fear and trepidation over the tasks ahead. Rest assured we are here to help you if you desire. Your host, Mr. Orsy Cruz, has led many team experiences, and he is very easy to work with. He has a vast knowledge of Roatan and all of its communities. He will do his best to make your and your team-mates’ trip a life changing experience in a good way!

Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries does not have funding for mission projects. As you develop a plan of action, keep in mind that your team will also have to raise funds for your mission beyond travel, housing, and meals. As your team forms and you begin to formulate a schedule, we will be able to help you with budgeting and a list of current projects at our Greenfield Children’s Home that need attention.

So how should you get started? As a leader it is your responsibility to have a clear reason for going on a mission trip. There is much ministry to be done in Roatan and at our Greenfield Children’s Home and Beacon School. If you care to have a conversation about the opportunities, feel free to call or send an email. Discuss your God sent desires with your Pastor or others you trust. If you were to go alone, what do you feel you are equipped to do? What talents do others have that would be helpful?

Most short-term missions either have one specific project they have decided to accomplish – such as building a home, or they plan a diverse set of visions for a team to cover. Our experience has shown us that there are three areas of focus which lend well to a week-long trip:

  • Ministry to the children at the Greenfield Children’s Home (not babysitting)
  • Prayer and provision visits to the broader community
  • Construction, maintenance, and repair work at the children’s home and school.

The specifics vary with time, so it will be best to contact the Missions Coordinator for Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries for the latest needs by emailing to missions@sblmroatan.net.

We look forward to partnering with you in ministry and mission to the people of Roatan, Honduras.
