Teen Missions Trip: Honduras
Feb 23 – Mar 3 all-day

UBC is sponsoring a teen missions trip to San Francisco de Yojoa.  This village is the hometown of one of our church members, Rosa Gray.  She has been conducting evangelistic efforts in this town over the past several years in the public schools and  we are going to help do followup and teaching on what she has done.

What we will doing during the trip?

  • Evangelism and teaching in the Honduran public graded and high schools
  • Open air evangelism in the central park
  • Small work projects around town
  • Small medical team working with a government clinic and doing some house visits

What is the latest date to decide to go on the trip or not?

We are limiting the number of people on the team to 20 members. We must know how many are going by no later than November 23rd.

For more information on the trip to Honduras you can contact one of the guys below or pick up the information sheet in the foyer.
